White Eagle Swim Team Parent Committee Openings
All Warrior Families:
White Eagle Swim Team, like other volunteer run teams/organizations, relies on committees and committee leaders to make it all happen. Our committees represent you and your expectations for our team. Committee members evaluate ideas and recommend actions that affect your team.
Our committee chairs are always looking for talented, dedicated people who want to be a part of such a strong and enjoyable program for our kids and their peers. Each of you has the most needed quality that lends to operating a successful program – love for your children and desire for them to have a fun, safe and healthy summer experience.
There is so much more that goes into operating this program than volunteering for the required jobs that ensure a smoothly run meet and season. Perhaps you find that timing at 5 meets isn’t your 1st choice anymore and you feel that you could serve the team in this different capacity? Perhaps your family cannot imagine your summers without Warrior Swimming and you want to be a part of what makes it so great? If so, please take a look at our committees and the brief descriptions for each to determine if your talents/interests may serve one of the areas well. If so, please reply to this email to [email protected].
Many of the parents listed below have served this team since their own swimmers began the program, and are looking to move into different areas of responsibility, so there are several committee areas to fill. For many of the positions the outgoing committe chairs will work with you to ensure a smooth transition.
Janet served in the assistant position for 3 years and 'learned the ropes' before taking over, but has not had anyone assisting her since assuming that role. She needs that assistant position to be filled this year as it is time for her to train her successors to ensure a smooth transition when it comes time for her to depart. Please note: While swimmer registration for the 2014 season has begun, all vacant positions must be filled before we can begin job sign ups.
Serving as a committee chair fulfills your family's 5 meet/job requirement for the season. Thank you for considering being an important member of our parent committee and for considering the future of Warrior Swimming.
