SUPPORT YOUR SWIMMER BY VOLUNTEERING
Our dolphins love nothing more than seeing their parents involved at the meets. If you're interested in becoming a key volunteer, email Sara Weinstock at swim@kgrc.org. She will let you know how to attend a 2-hour clinic at NVSL University to become certified in one of the key positions.

Otherwise, we always need volunteers at each meet.

2017 Time Trials and B Meet Volunteer Opportunities - Each of these jobs is NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED and we typically need as many as 25 volunteers for EACH MEET from OUR TEAM. IF YOU HAVE A CHILD SWIMMING, SOMEONE FROM YOUR FAMILY SHOULD BE DRESSED IN BLUE AND WHITE ON THE POOL DECK VOLUNTEERING

2017 A Meet Volunteer Opportunities - Each of these jobs is NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED and we typically need 18 volunteers (excluding trained key volunteers) for EACH MEET from OUR TEAM

DONATE TO THE TEAM - ONE AND DONE! Please sign up for one donated item per swimmer, or donate $20 to be used for Tuesday Treats and other supplies as the season goes on. Once you have donated, your swimmer can receive their complimentary 2017 KGRC Dolphins T-shirt. Please bring donations on June 14 or 15.

SWIM TEAM APPAREL AND SPIRIT WEAR
Sport Fair is our team suit supplier, and they'll be at our pool before and during practice on June 14 and 15. You can purchase a suit at that time, or you can visit their store at 5010 Lee Highway in Arlington. Girl suits are about $65 and boy suits are about $45.

If you're interested in Spirit Wear, visit our Team Store. The LAST DAY to purchase personalized silicone caps is MAY 16, and the LAST DAY to purchase other spirit wear is JUNE 5. All orders will be ready for pick up at Time Trials.

Go Dolphins!
