Marketing and fundraising, risk management and insurance, selecting staff, and recruiting and retaining volunteers are all essential components of running a successful club.
There are many places in the United States where the swim team is one of the programs offered by the owner or operator of a swimming facility. These entities typically include universities or colleges, YMCAs or YWCAs, Boys and Girls Clubs, park and recreation departments, and private schools or school districts.

The success of a group is determined by how well the people involved see their responsibilities affecting the program in a positive way. The volunteer who feels appreciated will continue to work and be productive. Praise is the easiest and quickest way to encourage someone. Saying "Thank you" can be the same as a Gold Medal!
