PLEASE! Volunteer!! Support our sport!
One last plea to all Swimmers, friends of swimmers, and anyone interested in doing a good deed! The Oklahoma HS State Swimming meet and the Oklahoma Age Group Swimming Championships are successfully completed! Thanks to all of you who gave of your time for those meets! Whether you had a kid swimming and had to be at the pool anyway, or you gave of your time out of the goodness in your heart, THANK YOU!!! ONE MORE BIG EVENT TO GO!! *USA Swimming/ Speedo Region VIII Sectionals Swim Meet, March 7- 10, 2013, Jenks Trojan Aquatic Center Volunteer for at least TWO Sessions and receive a FREE, very cool, SECTIONALS t-shirt. Just a few quick details: the morning sessions are prelims. Both ends of the pool will be utilized, which makes the meet go much faster. BUT it also requires more timers!!! The evening sessions are finals. The top 16 swimmers from each event in the morning session are rewarded by swimming again in the evening session! Can you imagine swimming the 200 Fly TWICE in one day!! :) Our help is definitely needed and appreciated. No experience necessary. We will train you. Below is the link to the online volunteer sign up. Various shifts are available so don't think you have to be there all day, unless you want to! The online sign up will also show you who else has committed and when they are working. The volunteer coordinator (Emily) prefers that you sign up now so that she knows how many slots she needs to fill. Below are the instructions for Masters swimmers to volunteer at the Sectionals meet, March 7-10. There is special need for volunteers in the following areas: • Hytek and console operators. • Volunteers for week day sessions • Volunteers with swim meet experience to work as a head timer or runner at all sessions. Of course, the regular, behind the block, timers are also needed. Best seat in the house! And we will train you if haven't been a timer before. No worries! It is easy and fun!
