Officials for our meets are parent volunteers. Yes some are PIAA certified but we can have parents trained to be the officials during dual meets. There is no cost and you can shadow during practices and meets to learn all the rules. There are often free clinics offered by the league. We need you in order to make DSC a success.
If you are interested please contact Coach Alicia, Coach Gina or Coach Gwen.
Snack Bar Service
All volunteers are parents of a swimmer, DSC needs many snack bar servers throughout the day in order to allow parents to see their children swim. Please donate your time to the snack bar, it can be an hour or it can be all meet. The snack bar is a way for swimmers to get nutrition they need during the meet and where the spectators can grab breakfast or lunch. Please help in any way possible. Reach out to the snack bar coordinator Kimberly Allen if you have any questions
