Parent Memorandum of Understanding


As a part of the Southwest Houston Recreational Swim League ("SHRSL”), the Covington Woods Swim Team("CWST”) must meet all of the league’s Rules and Regulations (available at Parent participation throughout the season is required to be in compliance with SHRSL rules. CWST has a variety of tasks and duties based on your interest and time of availability and can accept volunteer work from either parent or even a swimmer or sibling in some cases. All families have volunteer responsibilities totaling 5 work shifts for the season… YOUR INVOLVEMENT IS MANDATORY. We understand that there are extreme cases where families are unable to meet the mandatory work shift minimum, and there is a $175 volunteer buyout fee that can be paid with registration to exempt your family from volunteer responsibilities.

Families that do not remit the $175 buyout fee with registration must provide a check payable to CWST in the amount of $175 that will be held throughout the season pending your satisfaction of 5 work shifts. Checks can be turned in to any board member at the pool during the first week of practice. Our Volunteer Coordinator is Jess Vasquez (346)901-0008. You may reach out to her if your are unable to bring your check to the first week of practice.  After the first week, swimmers will not be allowed to practice until their check is received by the board. This check will only be cashed if you fail to complete and/or miss your mandatory work shifts, and it will be returned to you at the end of the season if you satisfy them. It is our hope to avoid additional fees to our swimmers’ families. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Parent Volunteer Coordinator, CWST Board..

  • I understand that any misconduct by the above swimmer(s) may result in disciplinary action up to and including removal from the team in accordance with the Contract of Expectations agreed to by my swimmer(s) with this registration.
