Parent/Adult Volunteer Job Descriptions
The Braddock Heights Swim Team and the Frederick Summer Swim League are completely reliant on volunteer support. We would not be able to have our team and weekly meets without the time and effort provided by our families! As such, we ask that each family who has a swimmer on the Braddock Heights swim team volunteer a minimum of 6 volunteer jobs throughout the season. See our job sign-up for available positions. You must be logged into your account to see and sign up for volunteer jobs.
