What is a volunteer?
Is it someone who does something for FREE? Yes, but there’s a little more to it than that. A volunteer is a very special person who gives freely of their time and talents for the benefit of others, without personal remuneration.
Who is a Volunteer?
A volunteer is a person who is willing to help perform any one of the necessary unpaid jobs in our club. Your role as a volunteer is important to our sport. You can be actively involved in your child's swimming program and can also be instrumental in strengthening swimming in the community
There are unlimited opportunities to get involved to help in almost any capacity. The rewards are meeting new people, making new friends and having that great feeling that you have had an impact on your child's athletic environment, and love of swimming.
This season GSH will be introducing family participation and fundraising components for all competitive programs.
The family participation is a program that will help strengthen our swim community as families work together to make our club better and stronger. While the focus of family participation is on creating club officials, there are many other roles within the club that need family volunteers. We welcome all family members (parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents). Follow the Family Participation link for a full description of this program.
GSH has adopted a fundraising program to assist both the club and swimmers alike. Our fundraising program is Swim-A-Thon. The Swim-A-Thon will take place in March when swimmers are not competing. We hope to run contests for those top achievers, making the event fun and exciting for our swimmers.
