We need volunteers to tend to club operations (the executive), to coordinate events and fundraising (committee members), and to assist at swim meets.
When we host our own Grand Prix swim meet we need every swim family to step up in some capacity. Water polo families are expected to run the Barracudas Water Polo tournaments. When we attend other clubs’ meets or tournaments, we help out as timers and on-deck judges and scorekeepers (water polo). If you are ever unsure of how you can help out, please just ask. We need you!
Part of your membership obligation is 20 hours of volunteering for swim families, ten of which must be done at Barracudas Grand- Prix Swim Meet. Water Polo/ Dive only families must complete 10 service hours during the season. See full Volunteer Policy here.
Note: this timeline is only a recommendation for how best to feel a part of the Cudas family without feeling overwhelmed and, by no means, should you view this timeline as limiting of your involvement. The more you get involved the more you will feel like you belong. If you have specialized skills (graphic design, photography / video, equipment maintenance, accounting, web, aquatics …), please let the board know.
Please see the Barracudas Grand Prix Swim Meet Page to learn more about Meet Volunteer Roles.
All volunteer job opportunities will be posted in the Sign-up Centre.
