Volunteers Week - Thank youJune 1, 2022 Volunteer
Thank you to all our volunteers
June 1 – 7 is Volunteers Week and we are we would like to take the opportunity to thank all our volunteers across the disciplines.
With over 30,000 active Official and Volunteer members, Volunteers are the backbone of our sport. Our aquatics clubs and events are about so much more than the swimmers, divers and players engaged in them. Our dedicated volunteer workforce are the heart and soul of club activity ensuring that people are able to participate in our fantastic sport. Volunteers ensure that our National events are a success, and a platform from which our athletes can thrive.
Volunteering opportunities come in all shapes and sizes, there are many different roles available throughout the sport whether it is coaching, officiating, supporting your club or national events, being a member of a committee or working group, helping with social media or websites, finding funding/sponsorship opportunities or organising kit. From Front of House team members at events, Runners and Stewards, to Field of Play, Technology, Communication and Marketing. There are such a variety of roles on offer and each one is as important as the other in ensuring our clubs and events run successfully and athletes and spectators alike get the maximum benefit.
Our volunteers help shape the future of our sport, bringing innovation through Youth Panels and Working groups. Embracing change and driving improvements, volunteers have mastered new technologies to keep the show on the road as always giving their own time to help others.
Each and every volunteer who offers their time to support aquatics is valued and appreciated for what they do. Our sport simply couldn’t run without you. This week and every week we would like to thank you for your contribution and hope that long may it continue.
