As a not for profit club, run by member parents, volunteer contributions are a vital aspect to the progress and success of our swimmers. There is a wide range of talents, skills and assistance you can give to continue the tradition of excellence of The Hamilton Aquatic Club.
Many hands make lighter work!
Each family is asked to contribute by volunteering a certain amount during the year, depending on level of your swimmer. For many opportunities, any representative from your family is able to participate to help you earn volunteer points provided he/she is over the age of 14.
There are many areas of opportunity, skills and experience that is needed to successfully run the club. Check out the many opportunities to help on the adjacent chart. Please e-mail Volunteer Coordinator Rob Blunsdon directly if you are interested in any of these opportunities.
Bond cheques will be cashed on May 31, 2017 if less than 50% of the participation requirement has been met. Any adjustments for participation done after May 31 will be handled before June 30th. If a family has only partially completed their volunteer requirement there will be a pro-rated levy applied. Failure to show for an agreed upon session will result in a $60.00 assessment.

Meet VolunteeringMore than one family representative may work any swim meet at the same time. The area most critical to the success of our children is giving them the opportunity to compete in an official capacity. Without our volunteer meet officials this would not happen. It is also truly the best seat in the house!
