Parent Job Signup
It's been great to see all our swimmers in the pool over this past week. Now it's time to start planning for our meets. In order to best utilize our new communication platform through Swimtopia, there has been a link created on the schedule to sign up for parent jobs.
You will have to register for an account. I was able to do that very simply by clicking the Login link at the top right of the homepage. Type in your email address and then select 'forgot my password'. You will be sent an email that will allow you to create a password. At that point, you will be able to sign up for jobs.
Just a few things to consider:
1. It takes about 40 parents to adequately cover all volunteer slots for a home meet, and 30 parents to cover an away meet. Since we have about 30 families registered for swim team, that means it is essential that we have every family participating. There may even be instances where both parents are needed, but I will try my best to keep that to a minimum.
2. There are many different roles that need to be filled – some require special training at the beginning of the season; many do not. If we don’t hear from you about your preference, we will be happy to assign you to work where you’re needed most.
3. If I have reached out to you individually about specific jobs (mainly for positions that require training), then you do not need to signup through Swimtopia.
4. Please be sure to fill out the swim team binder for any meets you know you will missing as soon as possible.
We are small, but mighty... and can accomplish anything working together. I am always impressed how well everyone comes together to work as a team. This is going to be a great swim season.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 804-349-3941 with any questions or concerns. I'm up at the pool most days for swim practice too.
Let's go Stingrays!
