Volunteer Opportunities 

A large part of the CPWD’s success comes from the dedicated group of families we have within our Club. When you choose to dedicate your time/services, the act of volunteering can make an incredible difference. 

By volunteering you will:

  • have the opportunity to learn more about the sport of swimming, 
  • show that you are invested in your child’s development, 
  • be given a voice to help guide the direction and the success of our Club, and 
  • strengthen the overall success of our Club! 

As we get set to start our season, we are actively recruiting the following full-year volunteer positions:

 

Communications and Media Relations Spokesperson – 8 points 

The Communications and Media Relations spokesperson will facilitate media outreach and media requests for the Club. 

 

Dragon Bytes Newsletter Writer/Editor– 15 points 

Our Dragon Bytes shares the most up-to-date information through a digital newsletter. The newsletter includes the President’s message, a Coach's Update, a list of recent incredible swims and top meet placings and other general articles supporting swimmers, the Club and our parents. Working in collaboration with the Executive and the Head Coach you will produce our monthly newsletter.
