Summer swim teams are run by volunteers! We require each family to provide one adult per meet to volunteer in some capacity. Don't be shy! There is always something you can help out with, as there are so many jobs and each is critical for the team and for successful meets. 

The following is a summary of the general volunteer positions. If this is your first time volunteering, someone will go over the basics with you before your shift. Most positions are very easy and you will get the hang of them quickly. If you have any questions or concerns about volunteering, please contact one of the team leads. 

Announcer: Keep the meets running smoothly by announcing events and team information during home meets.

Starter:  Call each event, make sure timers are ready, ensure swimmers are ready to start and then start each swim event using a starting gun.

Tent Monitor: Remain in the swimmer waiting area, ensure swimmers are in the heating area for their appropriate races and mark swimmers arm with events.

Clerk: Assist swimmers in the heating area to ensure they are lined up in the correct lane and heat.

Timer: Record times for swimmers in each event during meets using the league timing watches.

Judge: Judge stroke and swim techniques during swim meets, and write DQ tickets as needed.  All judges must attend at least one BFSL Judges Clinic prior to the first meet & watch the training videos

Runner: Collect  and deliver timing slips & DQ slips to the designated meet Head Judge.

Scoring/Computer: Assist the Head Scorer during meets to correctly record swimmer times, and prepare heat sheets, lane sheets and meet program.

Ribbons & Awards: Prepare swimmers ribbons and medals, and file results. 

Concessions: Sell food & drinks during meets as well as help with setup and clean-up of food area.

Photography: Snap a few candid shots of swimmers, attendees, families etc. at each meet, to be posted to the team website, Facebook page and other outlets to showcase the team.
