Ribbons: Responsible for placing label on appropriate ribbon. These ribbons are then filed by last name in file folder mailboxes. Ribbon volunteer duty starts the second shift of the meet. *New this year – we are offering this position as an after the meet job. If you would like to place ribbon labels on ribbons in the comfort of your own home, you may do so anytime between the end of the meet and 9am the following morning. You must take the file box, the labels, and the ribbons home with you, and have them back (completed) by 9am the next morning.
Concessions: Join the fun of volunteering for concessions during our home meets! Concession volunteers bond while selling hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, desserts, and drinks at all home meets.
Grill: Join the fun of manning the grill! Grill hamburger patties for our fabulous concessions!
Computer: Home team provides laptop to enter swimmers times into the meet software program. Each team provides a computer person to assist in entering the times for the swimmers for each event, print labels for ribbons & make sure scoring is done correctly. Not difficult but takes just a little training – we’d love to train up a few volunteers this season for this job.
