THE HURRICANES NEED YOU TO GET INVOLVED!!

We are a volunteer-based organization in which the participation of each family is vital to the team's success. We have a paid coaching staff, but the rest of the work of running the team is conducted by a volunteer Board of Directors and additional team parents who give generously of their time so that the Hurricanes can provide a high-quality swim program to the community.  There are two sides to our team volunteerism:  Team Management Volunteers (ongiong) and Home Meet Volunteers (meet specific).

Team Management Volunteers are those people who take on responsibilities that help to manage our team and keep it running smoothly.  These include the following areas:  Board of Directors positions; Marketing and Communications (including design and maintenance of our team website, writing our monthly newsletters, taking team photographs of our swimmers at all meets, and promoting our team's accomplishments in local newspapers); Team Spirit (working with the coach to organize various team events, including movie nights, team outings, team dinners, and awards banquets); Team Equipment (working with the coach to design and order team tshirts, team suits, training equipment, etc.); Team Registration (ensuring all our swimmers, coaches, and officials are registered with Colorado/USA Swimming); Officiating (training with CSI and USA Swimming and then volunteering time at both home and away meets); and Computer Operations (HyTek and Colorado System 5 operation).  These people give generously of their time and talents, and we appreciate their ongiong efforts, especially because being a team management volunteer does not preclude them from being home meet volunteers as well.

Thank you to the 2015-2016 Team Management Volunteers:

Home Meet Volunteers are those people (ALL TEAM FAMILIES) who help with the running of the five swim meets the team hosts each year. To successfully stage a meet requires participation and support from all team families.  The Hurricanes have established a tradition of hosting well-run meets and making swimmers, coaches, officials, and parents feel welcome. 

Essentially, every family on our team is required to work in some capacity at our home meets, either during the actual meet itself, or prior to it (for example, copying programs, shopping for necessary supplies, setting up the pool the night before a meet, making burritos, etc.). 

The specifics of this requirement are outlined below and can be found in the Team Membership Agreement under the "Join the Team" tab of our website:

ADDITIONAL VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:

There is a great deal that goes on behind the scenes to help keep the team running smoothly, and to coordinate extra activities which build team spirit and add to the fun and excitement for the swimmers.  Your assistance will make the team better!
