Junior Provincials - Call for Volunteers Feb 10-12, 2023
We are in need of volunteers for Junior Provincials! This is a Provincial event, and all hands-on deck are required to ensure the swimmers have the best possible experience! The meet package outlines the volunteer requirement along with the meet information. Covid has had a very negative effect on volunteerism in all sport, ours is not exempt. Junior Provincials will act as a training opportunity for all clubs Junior & Senior Officials, and general Volunteers to work, and train in all areas of meet requirements in a collaborative environment.
