I ranked my volunteer position preferences when I registered, but I never get one of my top choices, why is this?
Ranking your volunteer options when you register helps us set up the volunteer system so that you can choose from the options you most want.
However, the volunteer options are generally filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so if your preferred positions have been filled, we need you to fill a different spot.
Whenever a meet is opened, the Meet Director or the Computer Rep send an email indicating such. At this time, you may choose your volunteer positions, even if your swimmer does not yet want to commit to certain events. Indicating your volunteer preference sooner rather than later will increase the likelihood you will be assigned to one of your preferred jobs.
If your job assignment presents a problem for you, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator to work something out, keeping in mind that while we do our best to accommodate as many people as possible, we do have a minimum of each volunteer position to fill to run a meet, so we may or may not be able to accommodate everyone on a given week.
We very much appreciate all our volunteers! Thank you!
