It takes some 90 regular volunteers (a large proportion of the total club membership) to make it all work well.
If you are a parent who isn’t currently involved in helping the club would you give some consideration as to how you might be able to participate.
Here are some ideas as to how you could become involved if you aren’t already:
Red Shirts – this is the team that makes all our galas run smoothly – from organising the raffles and selling tickets on the door to whipping the swimmers poolside.
Contact Carol Dorrell, our Gala Goddess, at email@example.com if you are interested in becoming a Red Shirt.
White shirts – this is the team of qualified officials who run the actual competitions poolside; this starts with timekeeping, and works up through judging to starting and finally refereeing. We provide all the training you need to become a qualified timekeeper, and then guide you towards the more experienced roles as you are ready and only if you are willing. We aim to recruit six new timekeepers this spring.
Contact Michael Holden, our Officials Organiser, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in becoming a White Shirt.
Back Office – this is the team who create the heat sheets, operate the timing equipment and produce the results at galas. Back office is a busy and hot place to work, but it is always great fun and very rewarding.
Contact Jules Burvill or Hilary Dickenson, at email@example.com if you are interested in joining the back office team.
