NPAC Hosted Swim Meets

The three meets our team hosts per year are 100% dependent on swim family volunteers.  Volunteer sign-up sheets are posted on the team bulletin board and the volunteer coordinator will also email parents when help is needed.  Each family is responsible for completing 25 volunteer hours a season, which can be met by donating food for either concession sales or hospitality, or signing up for a specific job during the meet. Please volunteer to ensure a successful event for our swimmers!

Meet Needs:

      ·  Official – 5 (each team provides officials for meets; it requires training and background
