Young Volunteers needed for the Edinburgh International

on Tuesday, 21 February 2017.

EISM 10th - 12 March

The Edinburgh International Swim Meet is happening at RCP on Friday 10th March through to Sunday 12th March  


This is an amazing meet with many previous and future Olympians competing from many different countries.

The meet is run by The East District so we are looking for young volunteers from District clubs to help during the finals sessions with the basket carrying.

This involves: Placing the empty baskets at the start for the competitor to put all their stuff in the the carrier then carries it to the finish or the side where it can be collected by the competitor at the end of the race. It’ a great chance to get close to amazing swimmers and to watch them racing. T shirts  are provided for the duration of the event. We ask that basket carriers wear black shorts. A small gift will be given at the end. They can do all evenings or just one or two but we do need to know as this in advance as it is a very important role.

We are looking for East District Swimmers primary 7 or above to help. They will be needed from 1615 on the Friday and Saturday and from 1545 on Sunday.
