Welcome to the Flyers 2018 Pre-Season!! There is a lot to share. The good news is, I will do my best to keep the emailing to a minimum. The bad news is, the emails, starting with this one, might end up a little on the long side. All informational emails will be posted in the “News” section of our website. Check for updates on the site often! https://www.teamunify.com/Home.jsp?team=renvslfsfva

#3 Volunteer Positions - We have a few key volunteer positions that we are looking to fill ASAP.

-Mini Team Coordinator- We need someone who will be in charge of communication and organization of the Mini Team. This is a position ideal for someone that has a Mini Team swimmer.
-Photographers (3)- Throughout the season, take and/or compile a minimum of two photos of each swimmer in a chosen age group (8&U, 9-10, 11-12, 13-18, Mini Team) for use in slideshow and website. These volunteers MUST coordinate with one another to ensure that EVERY meet, Pep Rallies, and other team gatherings are covered.
-Slide Show Coordinator- Produce an entertaining one-hour musical slideshow using digital photos taken throughout the season and/or collected from photo coordinators; play on giant screen at end-of-year party. 8 credits/season.
