Q: My club wants to get more involved with the local community and host events. What types of community events should our Masters program consider?

A: Being a good citizen in the community can be rewarding for your members and can build goodwill with your swimming facility. Hosting community outreach events at your pool will require varying degrees of logistical planning, depending on the size and scope of the event. It's important to assemble a support team that shares in the planning and execution of the events. Don't try to do everything yourself. Have a goal of giving ownership to many volunteers. It will add to the overall success of the event when many hands are working as one.

Examples of community outreach events requiring pools:

  • Adult learn-to-swim clinic
  • Special Olympics
  • Senior Games
  • Police and Fire Games
  • Wounded Warrior Project, Warrior Games
  • Paralympics
