Volunteers are an integral part of our swimming community, and have the crucial role of supporting our athletes to get the best opportunity to reach their goals. There are a variety of different ways you can lend a hand, from non-accredited positions to becoming a Technical Official.

A number of volunteer positions require police vetting to be undertaken. This ensures the safety of our athletes. 

Non-Accredited Positions

There are several positions available that require no qualifications. Why not try timekeeping, marshalling or helping with the electronic side of things as an AOE Operator or Recorder?
