OPK Swim Club
Welcome Piranha Parents! Lets have another successful fun season!
If you are a parent or guardian of an Oak Park swimmer, congratulations -- you are automatically an Oak Park swim meet volunteer! In order for your swimmer to participate in swim meets, a family member or designee will need to volunteer a minimum of 3 meets.* We all need to participate for this to work. With all hands on deck, the meets will run smoothly and your child will have an enjoyable experience.
Sign-up now to get your 1st choice of positions. Unfilled positions will be assigned to parents of swimmers not already signed-up. After sign up, if you need to trade, cancel or reschedule, contact another parent and work it out. Phone numbers and emails are available through TeamSnap. Look for the check-in table when you arrive at the meet to receive your instructions/gear.
If you are not familiar with the volunteer positions, please take a look at this link:
There is a position for everyone! We understand this can be intimidating, it is for everyone... until they jump in! The positions are very easy, fun, and make the time fly! If you have been participating in swim team for a few years, please step up and take a more demanding position. This will allow the new families to get used to a swim meet!
The swim team will have a concession stand during each home meet. We ask each family to bring an item(s) off the signup list to sell at the concession stand. Proceeds will benefit the team and help offset expenses.
*Parents with only a 17-18 year old swimmer are exempt from the volunteer requirement but we would appreciate concession contributions.
Thanks in advance!
