Parent Volunteer Opportunities

September 4, 2017

Hello All,

With the first few weeks of racing comes opportunities for parents to volunteer in supporting our student-athletes. I am reaching out to compile a list of parents who can help on the following meets/days:

Wednesday, September 6: KingCo 2 Mile Class Races

– Each KingCo school participating in the meet is responsible for supplying 2 volunteers to assist with monitoring the course. The window of time we need to staff is approximately 4:00-7:30pm (first race goes off at 4:30p and last race starts at 6:50pm – volunteers will need to be present in advance of the first race for volunteer briefing and station assignment).

Wednesday, September 13: Newport Home Tri Meet at Kelsey Creek Park

– We are hosting a tri meet with two other high school teams at our “home course” location of Kelsey Creek Park. We will be responsible for all course set up, course monitoring, finish chute organization and results collection, and course take down.

– Our biggest needs are for course monitors and finish chute crew, with a volunteer window of 4:00-6:00pm.

– It would be a bonus to have parents willing to help with flagging and cone setup in the hours before the meet starts (estimate 2/2:30pm start to setup if the park will not let us place flagging the night before), and/or make quick work of tear down after the last racer finishes.

Saturday, October 21: KingCo League Championships

– Each KingCo school participating in the meet is responsible for supplying 2 volunteers to assist with monitoring the course. The window of time we need to staff is TBD (race organizers have not finalized the day’s race schedule yet).

Parents interested in volunteering should complete the Bellevue School District volunteer application: http://www.bsd405.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Volunteer-Packet-Parent.pdf?x27100

Please also let me know you specific day/time availability and I will add you to my volunteer list. Specific information for each set of volunteers will precede each meet.

Thank you in advance for all of your help!
