The Bellevue High School Girls Swim and Dive program relies on the volunteer support of the booster community to run meets, sponsor and host events, and support the swimmers, coaches, and their families.
The boosters sponsor and organize the Retreat, Team Dinners, Senior Night, and an end of year Banquet. Volunteers are needed for each event. Each home meet requires enough volunteers to have two timers in each lane, a head timer, scoreboard operator, and a computer operator.
Get involved, lend a hand, and help support our girls!
The following volunteer positions need filled
We will post specific volunteer opportunities closer to the start of the regular season. If you have questions or suggestions in the meantime, please reach out to us via the Contact page.
Retreat The girls typically kick off the swim and dive season with a fun retreat that requires parent volunteer drivers and chaperones.
Given the delayed start to the 2020-2021 season and limitations on gathering as a group, the booster board and captains are considering alternative events to help this year's team members connect. Volunteer positions will be posted once we know more.
Regular Season Home Meets Regular season home meets are "hosted" by Bellevue High School volunteers. A lot of them. Each meet requires a minimum of 12 timers, 1 head timer, 1 computer operator, 1 scoreboard operator, and 1 dive announcer. In most cases, we like to have backup support for the computer and scoreboard too.
As the regular season approaches, we will need your support to staff all of these positions for each of our home meets. Volunteer positions will be posted once we know more.
Team Dinners It is a tradition for the team to gather a couple times during the regular season and again before each of the big postseason meets for a team dinner. Families volunteer to host the dinner at their home and are aided in preparation by the Banquet Chair.
We are just beginning to think through options an alternative approaches to keeping this tradition alive in this unusual season. Team dinners will probably take on a format as unique as the 2020-2021 season itself. Volunteer positions will be posted once we know more.
Postseason Meets Postseason meets often require that each participating team staff one or two lanes with timers. This generally means that we require 2-4 volunteers per session. For a multi-day, multi-session meet like the District Championships this can mean we need 6-12 volunteers total.
The 2020-2021 postseason will certainly be unusual. Currently, we anticipate a single postseason meet of some kind. Once details are made available and we understand the expectations of the Boosters in supporting this season's "culminating event", we will post volunteer positions.
Banquet The season traditionally wraps up with an end of year banquet to celebrate the season, the swimmers and coaches, and thank our wonderful Bellevue High School Swim and Dive community. Volunteers are needed to help organize the event, provide desserts and set up, clean up, and tear down decorations.
Given the delayed start to the 2020-2021 season and limitations on gathering as a group, we do not yet know if an in person banquet will be feasible this year. Regardless, we plan to organize some form of fun, end of season event that preserves great traditions like the paper plate awards and the election of new team captains. Volunteer positions will be posted once we know more.
