Our volunteers make a big difference
HSC is a volunteer led club and without the generosity of our volunteers the club would not be able to function.
We strongly encourage involvement within our club community and welcome new volunteers, encouraging them to develop within a friendly and supportive environment. Please see below an idea of what’s on offer.
Join the Committee
The Committee is there to take care of the administration of the club as well as make key decisions on the many things that affect the club.
It is made up entirely of volunteers who mostly have athletes within the club! Committee Members hail from many different backgrounds and working lives, but come together as they are passionate about the Club and the welfare of its athletes. No experience in necessary to join the Committee and full training and support is given.

Get involved on the day with Open Meets and Team Events
Each time Hitchin Swimming Club enters an Open Meet, the club is required to supply a number of officials. Providing officials is a condition of entry so, without them our swimmers would not be able to compete.
Throughout the year there is an opportunity to attend training to become an Official. The following opportunities are open as a progressional route for those who wish to pursue it through HSC:
||Judge Level 1
||Judge Level 2
Chaperones/ Team Manager
A very important role which ensures the welfare of our athletes at poolside throughout an event.

Many of our coaching staff are volunteers. Without them, it would be impossible to keep the running costs of the club at thier current levels. If you have an interest in swimming and would like to gain qualifications in coaching or swimming instruction, HSC will consider supporting you through your training.
