Please see the email below about volunteering at Sussex Counties.
If you would like to help, could you please fill out the form attached here and return it to any committee member or to the membership desk this Friday night.
If you are unsure about what this entails, or would like to help but are not a member of the club, please don't hesitate to get in touch to discuss this.
"At every event delivered by Sussex County ASA we need the help of Non Tech Volunteers (the people in the blue t shirts) to make sure it runs as smoothly as possible and that your swimmers have the best possible experience. The jobs we ask these people to help us with include distributing results, tech support, competitor stewards and refreshments. They can claim travel expenses in line with our expenses policy and if they are working two sessions we will provide lunch.
You will be aware that the insurance cover we all have through Swim England stipulates that anyone working at an event in any capacity is only covered if they are members of an affiliated club. This of course restricts who we are able to work with at our events and because the County does not have any members of our own we are entirely reliant on clubs to recruit these Non Tech Volunteers for us.
They can be anyone who is a member of your club, they do not have to be parents but, because of the nature of some of the jobs, they should be over 18years of age.
I would be grateful if you could distribute the attached form to any club member who may be able to assist us deliver the Winter Competition at K2 over the weekend of 21 / 22 October. We will then, with their permission. add them to our database."
