We are looking for 6 more timers, there are 2 people per lane paired together. Being a timer means one person is starting and stopping the stopwatch for each race then writing the swimmers time down on the given paper/clipboard and the other timer is pressing the 'plunger' when a swimmer finishes.
We need one 'floater' on the pool deck. You'll have two stopwatches to start at the beginning of each race in case any of the timers miss the start, you'll swap your watch with them.
We are seeking one person to train in as our Announcer/Scorer for the meet/future meets. Assistant Athletic Director, Patrick Tschida, will train you in, so the first meet you'd slowly begin learning the how-to's.
Lastly, we need 1-2 volunteers to set up Chuck-A-Duck (5:00-5:30 pm). If you've never done this before, no worries, Chuck-A-Duck is small but easy easy way for our team to earn a little bit of fundraising money. From 5-5:30 pm on home meet nights, there will be a table set up where we will sell rubber ducks for $1. The ducks have a number labeled on the bottom of them and when someone purchases a duck, you will write their name down next to the corresponding number on the given sheet. During our intermission break (between the 50 free and 100 fly) the Announcer will say chuck-your-duck into lane 4. After all the ducks have been thrown, a swimmer from our team will dive in and pick the winner. They will yell the number, Announcer/Volunteers will check who's name corresponds with that number and they will win a prize. Our Captains have gone out and received some donations from business's, so for our first meet, a free pizza from Papa Murphy's and free subs from Jersey Mike's is the prize! I will be at the meet extra early on Tuesday, so I can explain further if there is any questions.
One last note, parents/guardians, if you aren't timing or floating, please refrain from going onto the pool deck. If you need to talk with your swimmer please meet in the hallway outside of the pool.
