Getting Involved & Ways You Can help
Volunteering To Help At Galas
Prior to a gala Swim Ulster will ask each club to provide a number of volunteers to assist with the running of the gala (the number of volunteers requested will be in proportion to the number of swimmers the club has entered). If a club does not fulfill this request then that club's swimmers may not be allowed to compete! Searching for volunteers on the day of the gala will also mean delays starting! The assistance of parents is essential (approx 40 officials are needed for each session of a gala). The duties involved in the various roles can be found in the 'Volunteering at Galas' section in 'Galas' on the top menu of the Homepage.
A list of volunteer requests will be posted on the website prior to each gala. Please, please respond to that request!
IF YOUR CHILD IS SWIMMING IN THE GALA THEN ONE FAMILY MEMBER IS EXPECTED TO VOLUNTEER IN ONE SESSION OF THE GALA.
In addition to swimmer's fees the Club needs to raise funds in order to pay for hire of training pools etc. Rather than increase fees to the level required to meet these costs the Club endeavours to organise various fund raising events throughout the season.
Please support these events with your attendance & perhaps volunteer to help.
Please also ensure you pay your membership fees & gala fees promptly!!
