For our meets to run at all, we need volunteers!
We want our swimmers to have fun and enjoy the spirit of competition. To make that happen, we require all families with registered swimmers to volunteer for two to three meets over the course of the summer season.

We have lots of options for positions and shifts to accommodate varying family needs.
