Volunteering

Our thriving Club is supported entirely by volunteers – people like you! Even if you don’t fancy a dip in the sea, we can always do with more help, particularly with tasks related to the events or sessions listed.

We always need volunteers – club members and relatives – to help with the Seahorse Swim. If you are free on 2 July 2017 it would be great if you could contact Alison Ruscoe (alisonruscoe@yahoo.co.uk) who will be delighted to hear from you and explain the different roles available.

2017 Tues Registration Volunteers

DETAILS:

Sign Up Below!During the open water season, we will be welcoming club and prospective members ranging from competitive swimming and triathlon to social swimmers who enjoy swimming in relative safety with like-minded people.

We need two registration volunteers for each Tuesday session.
  • An experienced club member to provide guidance and support and promote the benefits of club membership, which is particularly important when we invite swimmers to attend taster sessions.
  • A helper to register swimmers, then notify the coastguard of numbers in the water, their swim course, direction, expected duration, and monitor the swimmers' safe return by collecting allocated swim bands / hats, notifying the coastguard accordingly. Also to ensure a supply of hot drinks and biscuits is available to returning swimmers, coaches, safety crew and beach walking observers.

Swimmers arrive from 6pm usually for a 6.15pm start, although times will depend on visibility. Swimmers swim in mutually agreed swim zones designated by swim hat colours, allocated according to swimmer experience and capability. It is important volunteers arrive promptly to ensure sessions start and finish on time.

Tuesday sessions in 2017 will run from 25 Apr through to mid-October. Sunday sessions for experienced club open water swimmers begin on 30 Apr.

2017 Season

Initial taster swims are only available on Tuesday 16 May, 23 May, 6 June, 13 June, 20 June, 27 June, 4 July, 11 July, 1 August, 15 August and 5 September (unless notified otherwise).

If you volunteer for a task but are unable to attend or find replacement cover, please let us know as soon as possible by either phoning Joan (01202 884057 ) or emailing John (admin@edowsc.org).
