Swim Team Volunteers

The old adage “it takes a village to run a swim team” (or something like that) could not be truer than for the Barracudas.  For every meet there is a need for volunteer timers, helpers in the snack bar, volunteers to bake for the snack bar, and stroke and turn judges.  Because we are a relatively small team, we need help from nearly every family every meet.  Following is a list of volunteer positions.  For every meet there is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board for timers.  Otherwise, please see the team rep to find the volunteer activities that work best for you.
