The Hammerhead Swim Team is run by many volunteers. In order to make it a fun and successful season, we require that each family volunteer for at least three meets during the season. Volunteer duties include, but are not limited to: Timing, Stroke & Turn judging, Clerk of course (getting kids to the seating area), concessions, ribbons and set up and tear down of tents and pool deck area. There will be sign up sheets available at the pool during registration, at practices and meets.
Stroke and Turn Training:
If you are interested, and we really need your help, you can volunteer as a Stroke & Turn
official or starter. It is mandatory you attend one, two hour clinic to be able to officiate a meet (returning judges from the 2012 season must attend one of the sessions as well).

We as coaches, ask that all swimmers be able to swim a length of the pool unassisted
before joining the team. If you have a little one who can’t quite make it yet, we suggest
swim lessons so that they can be on the team next year.
