Volunteer Opportunities

Davis High School Swim Team needs your help to get the word out about volunteering to time at a swim meet.  I need  students to help us out at a swim meet.  At every meet, we need 12 timers, plus 2 other students to help.

This year our home swim meets are the following dates:

 

Friday, March 8 vs:  Pacheco

Thursday, March 14 vs:  Lathrop

Tuesday, March 19 vs: Johansen

Friday, April 5 vs:  Ceres

 

Meets start at 3:30 and will finish about 6:30.  Timers would need to report at 3:00 to the pool.  So, the timers would receive about 3.5 hours or 4.0 hours.  It is really easy to time.

 

******ALL TIMERS WILL RECEIVE VOLUNTEER CREDIT HOURS

Thank you,

Toni Litke
