-Swim and dive team families will need to complete at least 12 volunteer points for the season. Volunteer jobs will be published on the Active site where you register your swimmer or diver. You must sign up on Active and check in with a swim or dive parent to get credit for volunteering. If your task is not at a meet please email us at swim@ohacpool.org or dive@ohacpool.org when the task is complete.

-All families must commit to volunteering or pay the $125 buyout fee, available on the registration form.

-Families whose children compete in meets will have to fulfill at least half of their volunteer points at meets.
