volunteers for swimmingOur SOOC winter/spring swim team seeks knowledgeable aquatics volunteers for our competitive swim team.  We train a small group of dedicated swimmers who are focused on improving their skills through rigorous practices and competition.

All practices will be held at the Chapel Hill Community Center on 120 S. Estes Dr.

Thursday practices will begin on Jan 18 and run 6-7p, and 7:10-8:25p.  Thursday nights we share the pool with another swim team, and focus on endurance lap swimming.  

Sunday practices will begin on March 11 and run 6-7:30p.  On Sundays we have the full pool so can work on skills development and give athletes 1:1 instruction to improve their competitive ability.  

All practices will end on Sunday, May 27.  SONC Summer Games is in Raleigh, June 1-3, although the team may attend an out of state tournament instead.

Coaches may elect to attend all 3 weekly sessions, or select the one(s) that fits their schedule best.
