Watford Swimming Club is run by a network of Volunteers, dedicated to support the Club in assisting with the administration, development and progression of the Club for which it’s members are sincerely grateful to.  Without this support we really would not be able to call ourselves a ‘Club’ or operate as efficiently as we do!

Volunteers do not have to be experienced or have a degree in Swimming!

Our volunteers are parents, guardians, grandparents, senior swimmers and even parents whose children have long left the club!

If you are thinking of helping out in any way, we would be very interested in hearing from you, whether you can spare time to assist with gala duties or are willing to join our Committee or train to become an Official we would like to hear from you.  It is our goal to provide support and training as required and assist with attending courses and qualifications if necessary.

We appreciate that everyone has busy lives, however please do speak to our Workforce Co-ordinator, Emma Turner to have a chat to see how you might be able to help.
