Concessions Signup: SOLO/Seacoast SOLO asks that we donate one item to concessions for each session that our child is swimming.

The link includes concession donations, as well as volunteer opportunities. We need at least one parent on concessions per session, but two would be ideal! You can 100% see the pool and will not miss your child's races when working concessions!

The more donations and volunteers we have, the better our concessions will be! Any questions, please reach out to Nicole G ([email protected]).
