Support Your Club - Volunteer 

With our club aiming to provide high quality coaching plus competitions, it is run on a non-profit basis by a committee, with the only paid staff being our coaches, lifeguards and swim teachers. 

We run events, such as our annual club championships and open meets, to which other clubs can attend. These events are a vital component of the club, as they provide a platform for our swimmers to excel and also raise essential funds. 

As with all clubs we rely heavily on volunteers. There are many ways to volunteer at our club, whether it's an hour or so at an open meet, or by becoming more involved and training as a timekeeper/official/team manager, to helping more regularly as a squad representative or perhaps taking on a role as background support / committee member. Volunteering can be a lot of fun and it's a great way to get involved in the sport you and/or your child love. You do not need experience for many of the roles: just a willingness to help!
