It takes a tremendous number of volunteers to operate a successful swim team and have a positive experience for the swimmers and their families. Volunteers are needed for serving in administrative roles, event coordinating, and running swim meets. Volunteering is a great way to get to know other swim team families and to create a fun, supportive and lasting experience for each swimmer.
Most volunteer positions do not require any experience. Any training needed is provided by the league. Team Managers coordinate the volunteer signup process for their team. See a list of volunteer opportunities and descriptions at the link below.
