Hello to all! Firstly, I would like to clarify that we DO NOT have a swim meet today, July 6- it’s a BYE week (meaning we skip a week!). We’ll have our second swim meet on Weds July 13 at HOME- Lakeshore vs Westmount.
It would be a great relief to start filling up the volunteer roster as soon as possible as we will need over 20 volunteers for this meet alone. I will need to rely on people responding via email as I will not be able to reach out to all individuals at the pool before next week! Thank you to those who have already been in touch wth me!
We are so fortunate to have a handful of loyal volunteers who help out on a very regular basis. We would love to recruit many additional volunteers to ensure a continuous thread of experienced people this summer and in years to come. Our goal is to have each family with children on swim team to volunteer for at least one meet throughout the summer. We’re also asking for help from any member that would be willing to lend a hand. We welcome anyone and everyone who would like to learn how to time! The training will last about 3 minutes:) If you have a partner that you would like to share the timing with, we’re happy to accommodate this- rather than timing for 3 hours, you could split it and do 1.5 hours each. We would also like to do some in house training for specific official roles so we have back up for times when current volunteers are on vacation.
Our summer swim meets are a very special tradition that many of us remember from our own childhood. They will undoubtedly create lasting memories for generations to come. Getting involved is so much fun, meaningful to the swimmers and a great way to meet people within your community! Please forward me your name, phone number, email address and desired position ASAP for next week and if by chance you can book in for other meets to come, it would very much appreciated.
