Volunteer Resource library
This is a collection of resources to help LSCs, clubs, and coaches with the management of volunteers. This includes information to recognize, recruit, train, and retain volunteers. Sources from both inside and outside of swimming are presented to cover a wide variety of needs. Generally information is not edited to just volunteers in swimming, so some information may be appropriate for your setting and others not as relevant. There are also a couple of external sites listed that may involve a fee to use some of their products please see the Terms & Conditions at the bottom of this page.
