Parent involvement is mandatory and the only way for swim meets to run smoothly and effectively.
Parents are required to volunteer at EVERY meet your swimmer(s) attend. A MINIMUM of one parent for one half of a meet is required. However, some weeks we may need to ask for more, depending on if it is a home meet, vacations, sicknesses, etc.
There are lots of different volunteer positions, please take time to look over the volunteer page of our website for more information. We rely heavily on parent volunteers and could not run the team without you.
***NOTE: Volunteer sign up for regular dual meets will close the Sunday before each meet at 5pm. If a member of your family has not volunteered by this deadline you will be assigned a role. It is your responsibility to check the volunteer assignments that will be sent by email to find out your volunteer position for that meet.
Failure to volunteer will result in your swimmer(s) being scratched from the meet.
Thank you so much for volunteering to help our Gators have a successful season.
I agree to contribute towards purchases made for Home Meet Concessions. There is a fee of $5 per swimmer per home meet (max. $45 per family). This fee will be used to purchase food/items to be sold at our home meets. Thank you!
As a parent or guardian of this swimmer(s), I hereby grant permission to Orchard Farms Swim Team to use any photos or video footage captured while taking part in swim team activities on their website, Facebook page and Instagram.
I also agree to these being sent to SAIL for their use on SAIL social media.

All members of the League shall adhere to the following Code of Ethics (Section 3.12 of the SAIL Bylaws).
In consideration of the work SAIL has done and will do to organize swim meets, and of the minor participant(s) listed below being allowed to participate in SAIL swim meets and related events and activities, the undersigned:
Swimmers must declare their intent to swim in Championships and Classics IN ADVANCE of their Divisional swim meet in accordance with SAIL policy. No change can be made after the start of the divisional meet.
SCRATCH FINE: A swimmer who is a late scratch at either the Championship or Classic meets for other than a valid reason, as determined by the sole discretion of the C&C Meet Director (physical, death in the family, etc.), will be fined $75.00 per individual event and $100.00 per relay event payable to the League. Scratches reported prior to Championships and Classics meets being finalized will be fined $50.00 for any event. The meet will be finalized at 10 am on the Wednesday following divisionals. The responsibility for the fine is on the team. Failure to pay said fine(s) by February meeting of the next year on the part of the team makes that team and all its members ineligible to participate in SAIL until all fines are paid. This fine does not apply to alternates who have not been called by Thursday night. Moving a swimmer or relay from Championships to Classics is optional for the swimmer or relay if notified after 5 pm on the day before Championships. (SAIL Technical Rules 2.7)

This authorization includes the power to consent to, and approve of, emergency medical treatment by a physician, hospital, or emergency care unit for such operations or procedures as are considered necessary or appropriate in the judgment of the medical staff of facility rendering the treatment.
