Dive Team Volunteer Policy
We need numerous parent volunteers to run our dive meets, and to make sure the volunteer load is shared, each family on the dive team has a volunteer obligation. Families who choose to not fulfill that obligation are charged a volunteer opt-out fee.
The Dive Team Volunteer Opt-Out Fee is $150 per family (for families that do swim and dive team, there's just a single $150 fee). A charge on your card will be pre-approved but not charged at registration. We will process the charge after the season only if the volunteer obligations are not met. This policy is not intended to be punitive or to prevent children from joining OKM teams. If you have extenuating family circumstances that impact your volunteering, please talk with your Team Rep. Here's the Dive Team Policy:
- Each family needs to volunteer for 4 credits (typically meets or social events).
- Volunteer opportunities will be posted before meets/events throughout the season. Families may earn multiple credits at a single event by having multiple family members volunteer.
- There are no partial fee refunds because of the associated accounting difficulties.
- The minimum credit requirement is a floor and not a ceiling! If a job needs to be filled and you’re available, please help even if you’ve met your obligation. Working a meet is often more fun that just being a spectator!
