VOLUNTEER CALL OUT


Do you want to be a helper?

We have a range of activities that need extra hands this Season.

From carrying gear to helping out Age Group Managers, or helping coordinate our amazing volunteers and cooking up a storm at the BBQ, every bit of assistance helps.

The more help we have the lighter the load and better the Woodside Nipper and Club experience for everyone!

We will provide the assist with any necessary training and there are already helpers in the group so you won’t be alone.

There really is something for everyone, we just need more hands!


 

Do you know how to signal for help if you are in need of assistance in the water?

A: Wave your arm high above your head with your hand in a closed fist and a patrol team member will be alerted.
