Service Hours

SSS expects all families to help at home meets, away meets, and team events. The service hour commitment for each family is 9 hours per trimester:

  1. Fall (beginning September 1)
  2. Spring (beginning March 1)
  3. Summer (beginning June 1)

Additional hours may be carried over each trimester through summer (ending August 31st). Families are not required to fulfill hour requirement if their swimmer(s) is on break or inactive status for the duration of the trimester. Unfulfilled hours will be charged at the rate of $20 per hour.

Submitting Service Hours

Service hours are tracked and accounted through statements each trimester that verify the number of hours a family has submitted toward their obligation. When an individual completes service hours for the team they are required to submit their own hours. Failure to submit your hours may result in a bill for unmet volunteer hours. SSS recommends that families keep track of their own submitted hours and reconcile their records with statements each trimester.

When you work a meet, fundraiser, or attend a board meeting, fill out the service hours form or email the service hour tabulator.

Failure to fill out your volunteer forms may result in you being billed for unmet hours.

Submitted hours should include the following information:

Worker and Swimmer(s) Name

Date, Time, Hours, Job Description

Volunteer hours may be submitted:

By email Direct your email to the current SSS Service Hour Tabulator email address on our SSS website: www.seaserpents.swimtopia.com/contact-us

When swimmers register in September for the upcoming swim year, all unmet service hours from the previous year must be completed or paid before a swimmer can participate.

Important! A good way to meet your service hour commitment and to learn about the sport of swimming is to become a stroke and turn judge. Many meets require teams to provide one judge for every 15 swimmers in the meet – or the team cannot score. Please, please, please consider becoming a stroke and turn judge.
