PEAQ Volunteering
The continued success of Pittsburgh Elite Aquatics relies on the voluntary contributions of our membership. In order to maintain high-level coaches, consistent practice times, and an overall high level of training, it is imperative that families volunteer their time and energy to help PEAQ successfully run meets throughout the year. Posted below is an overview of our volunteering requirements for each member. WE CANNOT HOST MEETS FOR YOUR SWIMMERS WITHOUT ENOUGH VOLUNTEERS.  Please review and contact us if you have any additional questions!
PEAQ plans to host 4 swim meets this year between September and July... Every family will be required to volunteer for at least 2 sessions during the short course season and 2 sessions during the long course season, if you are registered for the FULL YEAR. Every family registered for SHORT COURSE ONLY will be required to volunteer for at least 2 sessions during the short course season. A session is typically 4-5 hours of volunteer time. IF YOU DO NOT MEET THIS REQUIREMENT, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE ASSESSED $200 PER SESSION MISSED. There is NO volunteer requirement for families that have ONLY a Developmental swimmer. 
  • This is a full list of all volunteer jobs completed during the 2022-2023 Short Course season.

 *** We would like to continue to provide a way for families to pay down their registration costs, so PEAQ will continue to offer the RaiseRight gift card program. This program is not a fundraiser for the club, but rather a way that each family can earn money to offset their registration fees. If you choose to participate, you can raise as much money as you want to put toward your registration costs. Your account will be credited for any funds raised through the RaiseRight program. Click HERE for a link to the RaiseRight website, and use the PEAQ enrollment code 5B5CADA965978.

*** The club does not require fundraising, but all members are encouraged to participate***
