Volunteers Needed for 2024
As you'll know, it takes lots of parent support to make a swim season happen and we're looking for people who want to help this year. Below are some of our volunteer jobs that would make your family exempt from volunteering during day-of meets (four half-meets are required for 2024 season) - contact us if you're interested in anything or have questions. We have all kinds of roles; some work before and after the meets, some are on your own time and some during practice. And we have veterans who have done the jobs and are happy to train someone new. There is a spot for every family who would like to get involved.
