Volunteer Requirements for Provincial Championships Thursday August 18th to Sunday August 21st”
If you have an athlete swimming in this Swim Meet you are required volunteer to support this meet. Water Polo, Synchro and Dive families are also asked to assist our Club at this major event.
We have 255 volunteer hours to fill over the 3 day meet so your participation is essential.
Deck Officials’ shifts will be short; therefore, these parents will also be required to assist the club in other duties.
If your child is competing you are required to assist with volunteer duties, (this includes families of coaches competing)
This year our duties are Parking at Spani Pool and Hillcrest School and Concession Food Services. Since the swim meet is 3 days it is easy to select a shift when your swimmer is not racing.
Concession revenue is a key fundraiser for our club and help us keep our fees low. Parking is also important to manage so the visiting regions can park efficiently.
Sharks athletes, family members and responsible friends wishing to complete their Grade 12 graduation requirements are welcome to volunteer. Sharks will provide a volunteer letter to the school upon request.
If your athlete is competing in Provincials you have until Monday Aug 15th at 8 pm to sign up for spots, after this time all remaining spots will be assigned to families of competing athletes.Provincial Duties are assigned by BCSSA and are a requirement for those competing so the all athletes may have a great experience.

Congratulations to all provincial qualifiers. Looking forward to great performances in the pools!
Our club has the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy in Mundy Park. As part of the 125th Anniversary Celebration, Coquitlam has commissioned 12 Salmon Sculptures which have been decorated by local artists.
We have the opportunity to sponsor the Sculpture that will be placed in Mundy Park near the playground on Hillcrest Street. A commemorative plaque with our club name will be placed with the Sculpture. This Sculpture is approximately 6 feet tall, 3 feet wide and 5 feet deep.
If you would like to contribute to this legacy please click on the Donate button. If everyone in the club donates between $10 and $20 we will be able to cover the cost of sponsorship.
The sponsorship cost is $5,000.
Mundy Park Artist: April Lacheur. Telling the story of Coquitlam’s past, present and future, Lacheur’s colourful and hopeful design incorporates salmon, First Nation elements, a river, a tree and mountains. To find out more about this artist go to her website http://yapespaints.com/
