Participation as a volunteer is essential to the success of the NSJ Dive Team. Listed below are the areas descriptions of positions for which volunteers are needed. If you have more than one diver on the team, please consider one of the chairperson positions.
Concession Stand (Chairperson and Workers):
This is the dive team’s main fundraiser. Last year we sold pizza, walk-away tacos, chips, water, sodas, fruit, and candy. The chairperson will develop a plan of what to sell, and will decide how to collect donations for concessions. S/he will also schedule volunteers to run the concession stand for our home meets.
Judging (Chairperson and Judges):
Each team is required to provide two judges for EACH meet in addition to the Official (Referee). In order to become a judge, you have to be certified. Parent volunteers, who are experienced judges, need to get re-certified every two years, so please check those cards! Judge chairperson is responsible for creating a judge schedule.
Judge training clinics are:
Each team is required to provide one judge referee for each away meet. The referee needs to be judge certified, have judged for 2 years and taken the referee training. The referee is responsible for verifying dive sheets, calling failed dives, broken positions and max points for a dive.
Table (Chairperson and Workers):
Each team is required to provide at least two table workers for EACH meet. This involves sitting at the scorer’s table and tallying each diver’s scores on their dive sheets. Chairperson would be required to prepare volunteer table worker schedule, help to set up table prior to meets and being flexible to last minute changes.
Volunteer(s) will be in charge of putting labels on the ribbons before a home meet for each of the age groups. Labels will be prepared, and this person would have to place the correct amount of ribbons for each boy/girl age group in the required folders. Volunteer will need to work at the scorer’s table ½ hour prior to a home meet, and either the first or second half helping to write winners names/scores during the meet.
Needs an outgoing, good clear voice and able to speak to a crowd through a microphone. Volunteer read divers names, dive with dive number, DD and next diver up. Reads the diver’s scores as they are displayed by the judges, and announces winners in each group. Keeps the dive meets running at a good pace.
