Leadership Inquiry

Would you as a parent want to hear more about the roles that help organize our swim team? For example Chair Positions, Board Positions, Committees. This is without any obligation to committe to anything. *

Photo Release Agreement

​I hereby grant permission to CWST to use photographs and/or video of my swimmer during CWST sponsored events ONLY in publications, news releases, online advertisement, and in recruting communications related to CWST swim club. *

Parent Volunteer Agreement

Parent participation throughout the season is required to follow SHRSL rules & regulations. 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 (must be 16 yrs. of age). All families have volunteer responsibilities totaling 5 work shifts for the season.

I UNDERSTAND MY INVOLVEMENT IS MANDATORY. I further understand that there are extreme cases where families are unable to meet the mandatory work shift minimum, and there is a $300 volunteer buyout fee that is available for me to pay with registration to exempt my family from volunteer responsibilities. I understand if by the last event of the season, my required 5 working shifts are NOT fulfilled. The credit card used for my swimmer(s) registration will automatically be charged. I hereby grant CWST permission to charge the credit card used for my swimmer(s) registration a total of $300, if I or any member (16 yrs. or older) of my family DO NOT fulfill the mandatory 5 working shifts.
