Exeter Eels Swim Team

We Need You!

Without the volunteer support of parents, it would be cost prohibitive to run the swim team program. All parents are responsible to volunteer in some manner during the swim season.

Someone once said that the membership of an organization is made up of four bones. There are (1) wishbones – who spend their time wishing someone would do all of the work. There are (2) jawbones – who do all of the talking, but very little else. There are (3) knucklebones – who knock everything that anyone else tries to do. Finally, there are (4) backbones – who take on the load of all of the other bones and do the work that makes the organization succeed. To be a good backbone you must get involved. Ask questions; offer your help, talents and enthusiasm. Don’t be shy with your help. Our program will run smoothly and be a big success for all of us.

Every parent is expected to volunteer for a least one task at each home meet: concessions, timing, recording, line-ups, supervising swimmer rest area, set-up and/or cleanup. Don’t know what to do?
