Hello Whalers Families!

Welcome back to Summer Swimming! We are so excited to see you all!

Although our swim season won’t be the same as previous years, we are still needing volunteers to help our club continue on. Normally there would be a deposit obtained, at the beginning of the season, and the deposit is refunded as you volunteer at swim meets or club events. These positions do still need to be filled to ensure the smooth functioning of our club.

Here are the current available volunteer positions that need to be filled ASAP. If these positions do not get filled, we will not be able to participate in the ‘virtual’ swim meets scheduled for this season.

Please email club president Jane at with your expressed interest.
