Volunteer positions at Greenwave Swim Team Events:
Each family will be asked to sign up for a minimum of 5 volunteer slots. This means one person per family for one shift (there are two shifts per meet). There are a variety of jobs, large and small, and something for everyone to do! The same people cannot possibly handle all of these responsibilities. REMEMBER WE ARE ALL VOLUNTEERS!
