Important information for both parents and athletes:
One contract per family. Please select your top 4 choices for jobs at meets with the understanding that we will do our best to place you according to your preferences, for only one half whenever possible. This may not always be possible at every meet due to various factors such as: registered number of swimmers, other conflicts, number of certified officials or experienced personnel. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Swim meets cannot run without parents filling every job.
