Intrasquad Volunteer Signup

A quick reminder as you are chilling this holiday weekend, we need all families to volunteer for this meet. Please check out the Sign Up Genius and find a job that looks just right for you.

For the meet on Saturday June 1, we still need:

  • Officials and an Announcer (officials training is Thursday 5/30)
  • Bullpen help (organize the kids into lanes/heats)
  • Bullpen runners (who walk the kids to the blocks)
  • And a few other things (a timer here and there)

If you don’t know how to help, sign up and we’ll show you what to do!

TCAL Meet Officials Training This Week
