Below is a description of volunteer positions:
Timer:  Uses a stop watch to time swimmers at the start/finish of each race.  
 
Backup Timer:  Is a backup timer to the timers. There are typically two backup timers each meet, 
if a timer has a problem they simply raise there hand and the backup timer take their place that race. 
 
Clerk of Course/10 & Under Coordinator: Works with a partner to round up the 10 & under swimmers and 
have them in the staging area prior to their event.  Once in the staging area, coach's will help assist the
 swimmers from there. You will receive a psych sheet with the list of events and the names of all the 
swimmers who are swimming that event.  

Ribbons: Itís as simple as sticking labels with swimmers' names and finish times on the backs of ribbons.

Finish Judge: Stands at the finish of the race and visually determines the order of finish of the swimmers.
Records the finish order on a slip of paper. Once the race is recorded the paper is then handed off to the
runner,  who delivers to the scoring tables
 
Runner: After the timers record swimmers' times on a sheet of paper and after the Finish Judge records 
the finish order of a heat, the Runner is responsible for quickly collecting all the slips of paper and 
running them to the scoring table.
