Both parents are expected to sign up for volunteer positions when initially registering swimmer(s) for the Wild Orca summer season. At team registration you will be asked to designate 3 choices for volunteer positions (descriptions found on "Volunteer Roles" tab). You will then be assigned season volunteer positions, usually as per your initial assignment — but, sometimes just as per team "needs."
When entering your swimmer in a meet you will be required to designate “early” or “late” volunteer session. You will then be assigned to your volunteer position, usually as per your initial assignment — but, sometimes just as per team "needs."
Your swimmer will be eligible to swim a meet once swimmer is checked-in with age-group parent & parent volunteer is checked-in at the Orca Volunteer "check-in table."
Explanations about various volunteer roles are listed on the "Volunteer Roles" tab. What you don't understand you can find answers to via our Team Manager, our long-time Head Coach, the listed Volunteer Coordinator, or a generally friendly volunteer who previously held the position.
One Session per Swimmer
Please be reminded, if you have a child swimming in a meet, you are expected to volunteer for at least one shift for that meet. If you have two swimmers, you'll need to cover 2 shifts for each meet. Three swimmers.....3 shifts. We understand that sometimes there are extenuating circumstances that will prohibit you from covering a shift. You'll need to get with the Orca Volunteer Coordinator or Orca's Team Manager should this occur and explain the situation. Your child's eligibility to swim a meet is dependent upon your volunteer hours. Should requirements not be met you may very well find your swimmer(s) ineligible for upcoming meets.
