DACA SERVICE OBLIGATION POLICY

To ensure that DACA swimmers have the opportunity to participate in competition, DACA must host swim meets. In addition, DACA is required to provide personnel for additional DACA attended meets. Swim meets cannot run without family participation.

Your willingness to serve will have a great impact on your childs athletic environment and love of swimming. There are many opportunities to get involved including officiating, timing, and swim meet preparation/ hosting.
