As a parent/guardian of a child participating in swim meets, you are required to provide assistance to the team.  Throughout the year you will be assigned certain tasks on a rotating basis along with parents of swimmers who also participate in meets. 

Families with an active USA Official are exempt from timing assignments! 

When our team is entered into a meet, the team hosting the meet will notify us of the number of timers we are required to provide.  Based upon the required number of timers, we assign families to time at a meet.  For longer meets, we generally assign 2 people to split each timing assignment. 

Timing assignments are assigned to the families of swimmers who are entered into a swim meet and are done so on a rotating basis.  If your swimmer is not entered into a swim meet, you will not be assigned to time. 

If your swimmer is listed on a meet entry, you may be required to time. 

Timing assignments will be emailed to the team and posted on the team website prior to a meet (usually on Wednesday for a weekend Meet).

If you are assigned to time, you will receive an e-mail as a reminder 2-3 days prior to a meet.  If at that time you realize that you are unable to fulfill your timing assignment, it is your responsibility to find a replacement.   

All phone numbers and e-mail addresses can be found on the team roster which is available on the web site under PARENTS > TEAM ROSTER (after logging into TeamUnify).

Timing assignments should be taken seriously.  All parents are expected to fulfill their share of meet-related jobs such as timing. 

The Zeus Swim Team has instituted a policy that will fine any family that does not fulfill their assigned USA meet timing requirement or find a replacement timer as follows:

  • $25.00 for the 1st missed USA meet timing assignment;
  • $50.00 for the 2nd missed USA meet timing assignment;
  • $75.00 for the 3rd missed USA meet timing assignment; and
  • $100.00 for the 4th missed USA meet timing assignment

Any/all fines will be added to your swimmer’s account.  If a swimmer’s account is not paid in full, the swimmer will not be allowed to register for the next swim season.

If you have any questions about our timing assignment policy, please feel free to contact Bill Natlo with questions.
