To ensure the ongoing success of the club, we need every family to volunteer at least twice per year for duties such as Canteen, BBQ, Marshalling and Timekeeping.

We are also looking for one person to volunteer every Friday to collect the food order from the bakery in Ashgrove and from Ashgrove Fresh Fruit Market. This person would not need to volunteer for duties on the night. If you can assist please contact one of the Swim Club Committee Members.
