Donner Swim Club
Donner Swim Club is a competitive swim program affiliated with USA Swimming and Indiana Swimming. We provide the greater Columbus community with the opportunity to participate in a formal, structured swimming program designed to meet the needs of young people.
The cut-off dates for the room blocks for next month's Indiana Swimming Age Group State Championships are rapidly approaching. The Hyatt Place Airport block is staying open until March 2.

Donner Swim Parents,
We are two weeks away from the Spring Divisional Swim Meet hosted by Donner Swim Club March 6-8, 2015 at the North High School Pool.
The volunteer sign-up sheets are posted on the bulletin board at North High School’s pool and may be passed around at Northside middle school pool during practices.
There will be seven (7) sessions: one Friday evening, three on Saturday and three on Sunday. Please volunteer for at least one session if you have a BCS swimmer, and two sessions for AGD, AGE, and GOLD.
There are still many openings for each session. We especially need to fill the Marshal and Timer positions before we can start those sessions.
Donner Swim Club relies on parents and coaches working together to be successful.
Volunteering helps keep our costs low, your dues lower than other clubs around the state, and it is an obligation for ALL swim families to pitch in and do their part, as outlined in the Parent Guide. (See page 11 in the Parent Guide)
All parents/guardians, regardless of their child's participation in a meet, or the child's age, are required to work meet sessions. The income from the hosted meets is used to offset coaches salaries, pool equipment, and other club costs. Volunteer hours directly impact the annual dues.
Meet sign-ups are placed on the bulletin boards at North HS. Please take time to add your name to the task for which you wish to volunteer. More information about the tasks are documented in the meet volunteer opportunities. In addition, concessions and hospitality will post what items are needed for the meet in the pool lobby. Please sign up for an item and then deliver it to the pool the day before the meet.
If you have additional volunteer questions, please direct them to the vice presidents of the board. They are in charge of volunteer recruitment.
Thanks for your participation!
