Volunteer Shift Info
For the 2023 swim season, all families are required to volunteer four shifts (or "points"). One of these four shifts must be at, or in support of, our KC Invitational Meet (any exceptions to this requirement must be discussed with the Volunteer Coordinators prior to the close of Volunteer Sign-Ups and may involve working additional shifts during the season). Some volunteer shifts are worth more "points" than others. Please sign up for the number of shifts required to total four points. You may sign up for more than one shift per meet, even during the same time period, but we ask that you not sign up for more than 2 shifts at the same meet to minimize your (and our) risk in the event of a sick swimmer or unexpected schedule conflict. Older, responsible, teen family members; grandparents; childcare providers; and others may fulfill your volunteer requirements.
Occasionally we will ask families to reschedule volunteer shifts to meet the needs of the team. While we make every attempt to let families choose their own shifts, we must cover critical jobs at each meet and changes sometimes happen. We may also occasionally ask families to volunteer for an extra shift at our league championships or state meets. Families with swimmers at these events are asked to pitch in to help the success of our league!

Splash for Cash (SFC)
If you are unable to fulfill your volunteer requirements, it is your responsibility to either find a replacement, or request a teenager from our Splash for Cash (SFC) program to cover your shift for you. For a $40.00 per shift fee, your shift will be covered by a pre-qualified teenager. Please note that some shifts must be filled by an adult and are therefore not eligible for SFC, but our SFC and Volunteer Coordinators will work with you when possible.
To use the SFC program, you must submit a request using this form no later than Thursday at 3:00 PM requesting coverage for that weekend's meet. Please include the volunteer role and time of your shift. Our SFC Coordinator will contact you once they've identified a teen to replace you. You must pay our SFC coordinator $40 in cash before your scheduled shift. Failure to pay your SFC fees will result in forfeiting your $250 Volunteer Deposit check.
