We need officials to help run the meets we have; both internally as well as our committment to other clubs.
The club run meets for two very important reasons:
  • To provide safe competitive swimming for our club swimmers and
  • to help fund the gap between the fees and the costs.

This season we have 4 open meets as well as the usual club events scheduled. Support for these meets is always required. Please dont just watch others volunteer.

I have attached a form for you to complete (click here). Please find some time to fill this out.
