All volunteers will need to arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the session.

How long do I stay once the session has ended?

Volunteers will be assigned post session duties. Once these are complete and you have signed out on the volunteer spreadsheet, you are free to go. This usually takes about 15 minutes.

How many sessions am I required to work?

None. We do not require our team parents to provide their gym with any assistance when hosting a meet. However, team parents and gymnasts that are at least 9 years of age are given the opportunity to help with meet setup, scoring, music, hospitality, and gym breakdown, which all earn tuition credit.

Am I allowed to work more than 1 session?

Yes.

Are you allowed to eat while working a session?

No, but there are vending machines located in each gym. You may also bring food and drinks with you. The hospitality room is only available to our judges, coaches and ASI employees.

Are you allowed to eat while working a session?

Water is allowed on the floor, however food and other types of drinks may only be consumed off of the floor between sessions.

What is the attire?

All volunteers will receive a white ASI volunteer t-shirt once they check in. We ask that for each session in which you are volunteering, these shirts be worn along with shorts, jeans, or pants that are free from holes or tears. The shirt is yours to keep and should be worn at all meet volunteer sessions.

Are my children allowed to come with me?

Children who are 9 years of age or older are allowed to volunteer if space is available. Children under the age of 9 years old will not be allowed on the floor. We want to reduce the amount of distractions for our judges, coaches and athletes.

If I am helping with Tear Down, what is expected and what is the time commitment?

Volunteers helping with Tear Down are expected to work alongside ASI staff to help load judges tables, spectator chairs and move meet supplies. There will also be some light sweeping and mopping of high traffic areas. This typically takes about 1 to 2 hours.

What are some of the duties I may be asked to do before the session?

  • Scoring: You will input judges scores using a tablet. You will also write down the score on a score verification sheet which you will turn into the meet director at the end of each rotation.
  • Ribbons: Achievement athletes will receive ribbons on each event based on a scoring range. You will place the assigned ribbon into an envelope for the gymnast to receive at the end of the competition.

    Contact the host gym as well as your home gym to inform the sales representative of the cancellation. Please remember that we rely on parent volunteers during the competition weekend. Last minute cancellations make it difficult to run the meet and may affect volunteer status in future meets.
