Volunteers needed to help run the club
As with most clubs, our success is dependent upon the input of volunteers to help run the club. The club currently runs three galas, usually hosts at least one weekend of the Oxford and North Bucks County Championships or Arena league.
All licensed meets and County Championships require qualified officials to work on the timing of each individual's race, the judging of the races, refereeing and starting of races. The County has a list of people who are qualified and voluntarily give up their time to come to these events and ensure they run efficiently and meet the rules and regulations of the ASA.
Volunteer help is always required from within the club to help with entry to the swimming galas – manning the door for the parents, overseeing the posting of entry cards, running the electronic timing, putting entries onto the computer, providing refreshments and food for the officials, announcing the events, photocopying of the results and posting them for spectators to see and some general administration duties.
If you have not been involved in these events before, you would be put with another parent to introduce you to the activities involved in any one job.
We realise that with working and family commitments, it is not always possible for people to help out at every event, but it would be brilliant if you are able to help, even occasionally, to spread around the workload between all the parents.
Obviously at the end of the day it’s about providing events for the children to enjoy - but we hope that you would also enjoy being involved.
There are many ways in which parents can help make CMKSC work. The more volunteers we have who are actively involved, the better CMKSC will be. As well as supporting and encouraging your own child and considering standing for election to the Committee, we would welcome those who can help with fund-raising, publicity, seeking sponsorship, running or assisting at club galas and other galas, being a squad manager, writing gala reports, training as a gala official etc. If you would like to help, please contact any committee member or your squad managers. (Note: you must be CRB checked before you are allowed on poolside).
