Each family is required to have one Season Job that will be worth 10 points. Descriptions of the majority of the season jobs are listed below.
No child wants to miss donut days. After practice each swimmer can pick out a donut for a post‐workout snack. There are two of these events; one held right after the team starts practicing and another about a month later. Donut days are great season jobs for new families!
Ice Cream Pig-Outs
Another sweet treat. After attending practice each child can create their own ice cream sundae (several flavors with lots of topping choices). There are two of these events during the season. Ice Cream Pig Outs are great season jobs for new families!
All swimmers from Under 6 to the 9-10 age group are given a “ticket” every time they attend practice. On select days they can use the tickets to purchase fun prizes at the team store!
The Overnight is a long-time favorite especially with the older kids. The pool closes to the non‐swim team members at 6 pm. The team buys pizza and everyone brings food (fruit, munchies, etc) to share. After dinner parents and coaches engage the kids in fun games (both in and out of the pool), there are s’mores, and two movies are presented (one for younger children and one for older). Most children stay the night, but if that option isn’t right for your child they can stay and play until 10 pm (the start of quiet time). After that point, however, the front door is locked and “guarded” throughout the night (parents take shifts). Everyone sleeps out under the stars on the lawn with breakfast and coffee showing up early in the morning. The event ends at 8 a.m. Chair people for this event are often seasoned families but helping on the committee with things such as games or food is a great was to get involved in this even for new families.
Instead of practice, swimmers gather at the pool from 9:15 – 11:30 a.m. for a morning filled with games, food, crafts, and FUN. Each family brings snacks so there are plenty of munchies. Helping out with a committee job is a perfect way for new families to participate in the fun.
11 and Up party
This event is a special gathering for the older swimmer, (11+). They no longer participate in the team store but they get their own fun evening filled with games, music, food and fun. Helping with this event is a great season hob for parents with older swimmers.
Breakfast of Champions and Spirit Day
This morning is focused on getting ready for Champs! After a shortened morning workout, enjoy a pancake breakfast. Dolphin swimmers eat free, and their parents/siblings can enjoy breakfast for a nominal fee. After breakfast stay and make posters for Champs, get your nails painted or hair wrapped in the team's colors. You can also decorate your car with team colors. This event occurs the day before the Championship Meet. This is a fun event and a committee job is perfect for new families with swimmers of all ages.
Awards Dinner and Ceremony
Let’s celebrate the season! Everyone’s exhausted from a long day at Champs, so many people pick up dinner to bring to the pool. Swimmers get ice cream for dessert. People dress up a bit and the pool is closed for swimming. After dinner people get out their foldable chairs to watch the awards. Each swimmer receives a trophy and special coaches awards are given. The evening ends with some special goodbyes to our seniors. Jobs for the event involve set up, purchasing and distributing ice cream and clean up. This is another great even for new families to meet their season job obligation.
