volunteer Hours

A swim meet requires many volunteers to run smoothly and efficiently. We rely on our parents to help us to do this. We charge a refundable Volunteer Fee of $75. This charge will be added to your account during the registration process. After 22 hours of volunteering next season (at meets, hospitality events, parent day, etc.), we will send a refund to you for this amount. 

Hours will be tracked by our Volunteer Coordinator in the Team Unify system so you can see the status of your hours. To add your hours, please email volunteer@machineaquatics.com
