“The National events for 2016 are really gaining momentum, with 10 events between now and the end of the year.

“Our exciting events programme takes place across the country and you could be part of our swimming, diving, water polo, synchronised swimming and open water national championships.

“We are always looking for new volunteers to join our volunteer team.”

Roles can include volunteering as a competition steward or field of play team member located alongside the action on poolside, or event team support where you would be in a high-paced environment with the events team on ticket and programme sales, accreditation and results distribution.

Perhaps you fancy sports presentation where you are part of the team coordinating the announcers, activity on poolside, or medal presentations. Or maybe you want to try your hand at announcing yourself?

It doesn’t matter whether you have loads of experience or none at all. We will help you to find a role that suits you.

Sounds great! How do I sign up?
