No practices on Memorial Day. Practice will resume on Tuesday at the pool! Have a happy holiday weekend!
Good morning Marlins~
We are getting close to the start of our season and wanted to welcome everyone back! As you know every year we have a mad scramble to fill some jobs to help run our swim team once the season has already started. This year we are going to start a little sooner....rather than later! Below is a list of jobs (and descriptions) that must be filled. Please let us know if you can step up and fill a position! :)
Swim Team Board Members: We are in need of a few more people on the neighborhood board. Doris and I are stepping down. A HUGE thank you to Lauren Lowry and Heather Lauro who have stepped up. We would love to have a couple more volunteers. The main job is to make sure the team is run smoothly, be the liaison between the board and the pool committee and the coaches.
Registration: (Heather Lauro, Tara Owens, and Lisa Schwanz?) Will host two dates at the club house to accept swimmers paperwork and money. Will pay fee's to the swim league and handle volunteer commitment checks. Doris Robertson will guide you the first year.
T-shirts and Caps: Must work with Stitch 98 to get a T-shirt printed for swimmers and coaches and deliver to swimmers and coaches prior to the first meet. Possibly working with sponsors for logo on the back of the shirt.
Spirit Wear: Can be combined with T-shirts and caps. Looking for someone to come up with some fun MacAulay Marlins wear for the parents. T-shirts, visors etc....possibly as a fundraiser.
Trophies: Someone to work with a trophies and awards store to order trophies for the banquet. Must work with in a budget and must get trophies organized for the banquet.
Volunteer Coordinator: Someone who is great with organization and spreadsheets..... Must schedule every family to work 2 home meets plus a shift at the championship. Heather Lauro has offered to guide you the first year.
Communications: Someone to email the team with directions, meet times, meet information and to communicate any changes etc.... Kelley Hannam will guide you the first year.
League Representative: Someone to work with the League on rules, guidelines, schedules etc.....A swimming background would be helpful!
Concessions: We have two home meets this year and concessions is our only fundraiser at this time. We need someone willing to run concessions....purchase, cook and sell food. If you sign up to run one of the home meets, then we waive your other home volunteer position. Meaning you will only work 1 home meet and a shift at the championship meet. We realize a lot goes into purchasing the food, setting up, working, tearing down etc....
End of Season Banquet: (Rachel Lewis?) Planning the end of year banquet, purchasing food and organizing sign up genius etc....
Computers: (Don Hannam and Kristina Dudan?) Running the meets and computing information and compiling results
Photographer: (Jill Alkin?) Group picture and individual. Will take the picture and distribute pictures.
Ribbon Coordinator: Someone to make sure everyone has the correct ribbons and have them alphabetized for fun Friday handout. Must be detail oriented and must be able to deliver to coaches in a timely manner.
Fundraiser Chair: Someone who may have connections or ideas for fundraising for the swim team. We have not done this in the past but would love someone to take charge. Finding sponsors and/or fundraising ideas would be great.
Please note that we will hold practices at the normal, morning times on the days of all remaining meets. Our focus on meet days will be starts, turns, and finishes. If you are interested in your child getting some extra practice, we will see you tomorrow a.m. Otherwise, we will see you at the meet at 5:15 p.m.!
Also, now that morning practices have started, we will officially begin Fun Friday's! There will be two sessions, one for girls and one for boys. Ribbons from the week's meets, as well as a special treat, will be given out at the end of each session. Please plan on the following two sessions listed below for each Friday unless you hear otherwise!
Girls (all ages) - 8:00 - 8:45 a.m.
Boys (all ages) - 8:45 - 9:30 a.m.
Coaches Kristen and Morgan
