All families have volunteer responsibilities totaling 5 work shifts for the season (Excluding HOPE TEAM).
YOUR INVOLVEMENT IS MANDATORY. We understand that there are extreme cases where families are unable to meet the mandatory work shift minimum. You are responsible for reaching out to our Parent Volunteer Coordinator- Jess Vasquez DIRECTLY to inform her of any issues.
FIRST WEEK OF PRACTICE:
All families (excluding those that paid the buyout during 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 only be turned in to our Volunteer Coordinator, Jess Vasquez (346)901-0008, during the first week of practice. 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 the required 5 points. 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, Jess Vasquez.
