GETTING INVOLVED

Parent volunteers are key to the success of our dive team and we hope all dive families can find a way to get involved. We will need parents to be judges, work tables, and stock and staff the snack bar. There are 5 meets and plenty of opportunities to find a date to volunteer that works for your family’s schedule. We will be having a volunteer sign up early in the season for the following positions:

Snack Bar Coordinator & Workers: Work with Dive Rep to plan shopping and stocking of the snack bar for our 3 home meets. Organize volunteers to staff the snack bar on those dates (June 25, July 9, and July 16).

Table Worker: There are several jobs at the table – score recorder, degree of difficulty calculator, meet secretary, and ribbon writer. Each of these jobs can be learned on-the-job but we will have a table workers session early in June to cover the basics. We provide three table workers for every meet.

Announcer: We provide an announcer for all home meets. This person gives the name and team of the diver as well as the dive the child is planning to do and its degree of difficulty. There are written guidelines for this position that are straight forward but volunteers must be comfortable using the microphone and maintaining the pace of the meet.

Judges: WE REALLY NEED JUDGES – NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE REQUIRED. The divers at all meets are judged by 5 parents – 2 from the home team and 3 from the away team. The league provides a clinic on the basics of judging to standardize judging at the meets. This training makes you eligible to judge for 3 years and is held on the four dates below.
