Volunteers:The NEAS team depends on volunteers to assist with many facets of the team organization. While we will need chaperones to help with swimmers at the meet, we also need other people to help coordinate many aspects of the meet prior to the athletes leaving for Cary, NC. We would like to have parents volunteer to do certain tasks, such as organize and distribute equipment, coordinate fundraisers, and assist with media. All funds raised will be used to offset each participant’s total cost. If you would be willing to help in some way, please email Team Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your job could be as simple as a few phone calls and emails, but it would go a long way. Parent volunteers are required from each team attending to assist the Aquablazers in running an efficient meet. Sign-up sheets for meet assignments will be distributed in the application packet.
