Volunteer Roles

Our goal is to provide high-quality coaching and competitions, to do this we need your support. This club is run on a non-profit basis, the only paid staff are our coaches. We rely on volunteers to help manage and run the club and all the fantastic Rushmoor Royal Competitions. 

Anyone who volunteers for the club in any capacity and is not already a member of the club through other activities will be registered as a Swim England Club Support Member (paid by the club). 

Volunteering Gives You:

  • A sense of purpose and meaning

  • Improved self-esteem

  • New life skills

  • New friends

  • A stronger bond with swimmers

  • Fun!
