It takes many parent hours to support this fun and rewarding program. Each dive team family is asked to commit to three volunteer jobs during the dive season (or 1 chair or coordinator job). Most jobs are specifically related to running the meets. Some require no training at all, others require you to attend a local clinic. Get Involved!
