Swimming is different from many other youth sports in that volunteers are needed to run a successful meet. It is therefore imperative that every team family volunteers time to help at the meets and behind the scenes. PMR Rays is a family activity and our volunteers are the heart and soul of this Team!
Every family is required to volunteer for their swimmers age 4-14. Each family is responsible for fulfilling 3 volunteer Shifts for their first swimmer, plus an additional 2 volunteer Shifts for each additional swimmer. Parents of age 15-18, do not have to volunteer for these children. If you do not fulfill your volunteer obligations, your family will be suspended from the team for one year and must wait until open registration to join the following year (which will result in the loss of guaranteed spots on the team).
Once your family volunteer requirements are met, every volunteer Shift worked will be worth one entry into a raffle at the end of the season party! By volunteering extra Shifts, you could win discounted registration the following season, reserved parking for the following season, and more! Plus, you’ll feel great about helping our swimmers to have a great meet and your own swimmers will know how much you support them!
Families must sign up for all their required volunteer shifts by May 15th. If not signed up by this date, families will not receive guaranteed registration for next year.
