What an amazing year we have had at the NSWC Marlins! Our team continues to grow with many new families joining this year.

Consider getting involved! This year’s Swim Committee is an eclectic, fun group of parents from many different backgrounds. You need not have ever been a swimmer to be on the Swim Committee. We need people to fill many roles and responsibilities and the only real requirement is an enthusiastic, positive attitude and the ability to jump in where the help is needed.

We are on the Swim Committee because we enjoy being involved, we like to know what is going on at our child(ren)’s swim program, and we like being a part of the decision-making that goes on. Many of us are continuing next year, while others are moving on to other challenges.

We have a number of positions available for this year, both big and small. While all of them require communication with the Swim Committee, not all of them require you to attend regular meetings. We meet once a month on a week day evening.

Please contact President Andreas Aalhus to discuss what positions need to be filled.
