BVSC hosts approximately 10 meets per year which contributes significantly to our non-profit budget. Without these hosted meets, our swimmers' dues would inevitably increase for all families. Each session of a meet requires tremendous support from volunteer officials and parents/families in order for the meet to function for the swimmers. The benefits of supporting BVSC by working at meets and other events are numerous, both to the swimmers who learn that giving back to their community is important and to the family who can make new friendships within the club. It is just a bonus that working at the meets can even be fun--much more fun than sitting for several hours!
BVSC enjoys a good reputation for hosting efficient, well-run meets which parents and swimmers appreciate. As a stakeholder in the Belle Vernon community, we pride ourselves on the help that we receive from our members. We appreciate all of the time and energy that parents and families provide to time and place races, ensure safety on the pool deck, work concessions, and help in important meet administrative duties.
BVSC is so thankful for the many members who go above and beyond the minimum obligation. Each family is obligated to earn credits for the registration season by working at meets, becoming an AMS official, or supporting BVSC in several non-meet, long-term functions. If a member does not meet the family service obligation agreed to at registration, a charge will be assessed after the final service opportunity.
