Volunteers make a huge contribution to aquatics in Sussex by running clubs and events. Without them we simply would not exist. Everything that happens in our sport happens because of volunteers at some point.
We encourage swimmers, parents and fans to ‘Get Involved’ with our sport, not just as spectators but as volunteers with your club, helping us run events with your technical expertise or by handing out awards or training to become an official.
Volunteering is a rewarding experience, benefiting everyone involved. It builds upon life skills, work skills, confidence and has a positive impact on both the sport and the volunteer.
Our vibrant swimming community in Sussex can be directly attributed to the professionalism of our volunteers. Without volunteers our athletes would not be able to achieve their goals.
We always need more volunteers and any spare time you can offer will be much appreciated. Just register with community.sussexswimming.org and complete your contact details and preferences. You will be contacted, in accordance with your preferences, of all future volunteering opportunities.
