ISC Volunteer Commitment & Penalty System 

NEW! Committee Participation: Each member will agree to sign up for a club committee. Details and descriptions will be provided in September.

Meet Volunteering:

An enormous number of volunteers are needed to host a swim meet.  A system of base points has been established to ensure that ISC has enough volunteers to deliver the designated meets that it hosts during the season. Generally, two (2) base points are awarded for working a preliminary session and 1 base point for working a finals session at a designated meet.  The following tables show the proposed minimum base points that must be earned by member-families at each of the designated meets that will be hosted during the 2018-2019 season.

For each meet (column), members must volunteer the designated number of points based on the group of their most senior swimmer.

Penalty System

The penalty is $25/point of obligation not met.  For hosted meets, there is escalating penalty structure: if a member family misses their entire obligation for a hosted meet, the penalty per point for subsequent hosted meets will rise by $25/point.
