A huge THANKS Jill DeVries, Kenny Nedder and Kurtis Webb for officiating at the State Short Course meets.  Our club will not be required to provide any additional volunteers this year.

Each club is required by ISI (Iowa Swimming Inc.) to provide so many volunteers based on the number of entries at state meets. If a club does not provide those volunteers, the club will receive a fine from ISI and the host club. Should an athlete be competing at the State Short Course or the State Long Course meets, the athlete’s family must plan to volunteer to time or officiate. When an athlete registers to swim in a session, the family also commits to provide a volunteer for that session should those sessions be assigned to Pella Swim Club by ISI and the host club to fulfill our required volunteer assignments.

It is understood all volunteers need to attend a short meeting/training held prior to the session they will be volunteering for. Should a family be unable to fulfill its duty as called upon, the family must find a replacement. If a replacement is not found the family forfeits the use of sponsorship dollars and their account will be billed for state entry fees. If a family emergency takes place and your athlete does not compete or becomes ill and the family is unable to fulfill its volunteer duties, please contact the Club President and Coach promptly.

All families will be given 48 hours prior to the start of the state meet as to the volunteer requirements for the Club as set by ISI and the host club. The Coach and Board reserve the right to assign families to these volunteer duties should no one step up to volunteer prior to the session. A volunteer schedule will be published prior to the start of the meet on the club website/blog.   Effective July 29, 2013
