Volunteerism is necessary & expected, and we owe much of our success to parent involvement!  Parent interest and reliability are the only qualifications for Parent Volunteers.

Volunteer Expectations

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.
