Volunteers

Swim teams are run by volunteers! An adult from each participating family must volunteer in some capacity. Don't be shy! There is something you can help out, as there are so many jobs that are vital for the team and for successful meets. And (letting you in on a secret) when you volunteer to Officiate, be a timer, or help around the deck area, you will be closer to the pool -- and your swimmer(s). You'll have the best "seat in the house!"
