Our volunteers are the lifeblood of this swimming club. Either through the coaches, committee members, helpers or STOs. Volunteering is a rewarding experience. It builds upon life skills, work skills, confidence and social aspects which can be seen to be benefits for the volunteer. Volunteers make a huge contribution to aquatics in Scotland by running clubs and events. Without our volunteers there would not be a club.
We are always on the lookout for extra help. Whether you can spare an hour a week or an hour a day, your time will really make a difference. One of the easiest ways to get involved and help is at the monthly time trials. We always need timekeepers to record the athletes' times on the night and if you enjoy it, you can always become a qualified timekeeper and help the club when your swimmer is competing at galas around the country.
There are many different roles to suit your skills, from teaching, coaching or officiating to designing the website, fundraising, helping at swimming galas and time trials or ordering kit for the club. If you feel you have the time and would like to volunteer or have an idea of how you can help, please speak to one of the Coaches or a member of the Committee and let them know.
Swimming Technical Officials
Swimming Technical officials (STOs) are a central part of every swimming event and play an important role in ensuring the events run smoothly, safely and within the sport’s regulations. A number of roles exist within officiating, including timekeeper, recorder, Judge 1, Judge 2, Judge 2S, Referee and Automatic Officiating Equipment (AOE) Operator.
You can find more information about becoming a technical official here or ask one of our STOs.
