2018 Swim Team Registration Form

Welcome to the AFC Tigers Swim Team registration page. You can register ALL your children (Swim Team & Mini Tigers) at the same time. If you are unsure if your child is ready for the swim team, please register for swim team and bring your swimmers for an evaluation by the Coaches during the first week of pre-season practice (starting May 29th). Please read the swimming requirements for children to be on the Swim Team versus the Mini Tigers.

Registration is simple for both new and returning swim team members:

  • If you registered for the team last year, then your form will be pre-filled with swimmer information - please check and verify that this info is correct. 
  • If this is your first time registering, then once your registration is complete, you'll receive access to your own private account that will allow you to easily sign up your swimmers for B swim meets & select events, sign up for jobs, see your children's swim times and histories, maintain your own contact information and more.

Registration will close on June 4th so that we can order t-shirts and caps in time for the first meet of the season.

Family Volunteer Responsibilities

Numerous volunteers are needed to run a meet and a swim team and we need everyone to volunteer. In order to register your swimmers, each family MUST signup to volunteer to work meets and social events throughout the season. Each family will need 

Each volunteer opportunity is valued on a point scale between (1 - 5 pts) and EACH FAMILY must earn at least 12 (Twelve) volunteer points this season (Families that ONLY have Mini Tigers will have to volunteer at swim meets when Mini Tigers are swimming. Please see the Mini Tiger section for more information). Coordination opportunities and NVSL trained positions are worth more points than others due to the time required of these positions.

In order for you to complete the swimmer registration process, you MUST accept this policy. You may also indicate your preference for volunteer positions for future events. If you have any concerns with these requirements, please contact the AFC Team Reps.

We understand that schedules change and we are happy to be flexible if you need to change meets or events after the signup, however the volunteer point requirement MUST be met before the final A or B meet or we will have to begin assigning jobs as the need arises (Divisionals, Tiger Madness End of Season Party, etc).

Swim Meet Volunteer Policies

For home meets held at AFC, EVERY family is expected to help set up or cleanup the pool if you have a child swimming in the meet. If you have a younger swimmer signed up to swim freestyle or backstroke, please arrive before warm ups to setup the pool. If you have a older swimmer signed up to swim breaststroke or butterfly, please stay until the end of the meet to help cleanup the pool.

*****A Meet Volunteer Policy*****

The policy/ procedure is as follows:

All volunteer registrations for A Meets will close on Fridays at 2 pm sharp. No exceptions will be made for any reason. Any volunteer slot still open at 2:00pm on Friday will be filled with families who have children scheduled to swim in the Saturday "A" meet and who have worked the least amount of meets/shifts. The Volunteer Coordinator or the A Meet Coordinator will work together to assign parents to the job vacancies. Those parents will be notified by email on Friday night of their assignments. If for some reason you absolutely cannot work the meet, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator or A Meet Coordinator by 2 pm on Friday, otherwise your swimmer(s) may be pulled from the meet.

*****B Meet Volunteer Policy*****

The policy/ procedure is as follows:

The B Meet Coordinator will open B Meet swimmer registration on Tuesdays following the last practice of the dayAll swimmer and volunteer registrations for B Meets will close on Sundays at 2 pm sharp. No exceptions will be made. No time cards will be written on the deck. Any volunteer slot still open at 2:00pm on Sunday will be filled by parents who have signed up their child (ren) to swim the meet and who have worked the least amount of meets/shifts. The Volunteer Coordinator and the B Meet Coordinator will work together to assign parents to the job vacancies. Those parents will be notified by email on Sunday night of their assignments. If for some reason you absolutely cannot work the meet, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator or B Meet Coordinator by 2 pm on Sunday, otherwise your swimmer(s) may be pulled from the meet. Numerous volunteers are needed to run a meet and we need everyone to volunteer. If you have a preference as to which job you would like to work, we strongly encourage you sign up quickly. This will eliminate the need for the extra emails requesting volunteers which we know can be frustrating to those who have already signed up to volunteer.
