Team Support: Marketing/Fundraising/Outreach
(this is a team hosted event)
A strong component of the culture and swimmer experience at Orinda Aquatics comes from our parent community in the form of Team Support. The coaching staff spends the vast majority of their time focused on seasonal plans, training regimens, coach education, and daily workout preparation (swimming and dry land), not to mention the actual time and energy spent on the pool deck for workouts and competitions. Orinda Aquatics wants its coaches to keep their focus and their efforts directly on the athletes, which creates a need for parents to help behind the scenes. To ensure that the culture is inclusive of impactful social and team-building activities, and the coaching staff has the support it needs to function at a high level, OA asks that all families contribute by volunteering for one Team Support position during the swim year.
Team Support encompasses swimmer social events, the annual See's Candies fundraiser, larger events such as the Awards Banquet, as well as officiating and travel support. Roles range in size and responsibility. New jobs arise all the time, and if you have any special talents you would like to share with the club, we would love to hear about them.
The swimmer socials for the year have been listed as individual events with a "Job Signup" button. You can choose from one of the individual social events, or from one of those listed here. These events encompass more than just one event, but are necessary in the support of our program. Please take some time to read through the list and decide where you can best support Orinda Aquatics.
Parent support is necessary for the 2019-2020 swim season to be a success. Please read through the postions listed and sign up for one which you think would be a good fit for you. No experience is necessary! Questions? Please contact Cathy Hanley at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like further information about what is involved in volunteering for these positions.
