Volunteers for Canada Summer Games

Nov. 30, 2016

Hello Swim Enthusiasts


Did you know that it is going to be the hottest summer in 50 years! Really it is.  Part of the reason why is that the Canada Games are coming to town.  I know it is difficult to think about a meet happening in August 2017 but now is the time to volunteer.  We need your help.



Swimming will require on deck officials for 5 days starting on August 7 to August 12.  There will be 5 days of sessions at the Pan Am Pool and one outdoor swimming event at Birds Hill Park. 


If you are able to volunteer we need your help.  To volunteer the first thing I need is your email address.  It will be passed along to the games organizers and you will be placed at the swimming venue.  Volunteers need not work all sessions.  We will take any and all who have the time in August.  Heats are short being done before noon every day and finals will be exciting and broadcast on a host broadcaster.


Events like The Canada Games do not come around often, please consider helping us out and volunteering. 

Athletes and their parents are perfect volunteers.  If you want to volunteer and will be over 16 at the time of the games please send an email to:



If you are younger than 16 and want to volunteer there is a different process to be part of the Games.  When you send the email please include your age and I will include you in our sessional volunteer data base.


Thank you in advance for volunteering for the Games.
