We will have plenty of opportunities for volunteering including shorter shifts, floating positions and more! Watch for more information coming soon!

If you are unable to volunteer during meets, there are preseason and support positions available to you.
We are still in need of volunteers to step up and become a committee head. Please remember this fulfills your volunteer responsibilities for the year! As with all volunteer positions you will never be asked to miss your child’s events. The board and fellow volunteers will always step in so you can step away and cheer on your swimmer.

This will include helping with the Facebook, Instagram and Twitter account. Possible coordination of yard signs, car decals etc. May also create flyers to be distributed at nearby elementary schools prior to registration start.
