How do I sign up to fulfill my volunteer hours?

Our home meets are run with volunteer help, and every family is required to
fulfill at least a ½ day session per meet (usually about 4 hours).  There are
also many other volunteer opportunities available throughout the year.  Contact
the volunteer coordinator, Shannon Cooch, to sign up.

What is the difference between Short Course (SC) and Long Course (LC)?

In SC, training and competing are held in a 25-yard pool and lasts throughout the fall, winter, and early spring. In LC, training is held in both 25-yard and 50-meter pools, but competitions take place in 50-meter pools.  Training starts shortly after the end of the SC season and lasts through the late July/early August.
