parents to help with team tryouts (timing and recording of finish results), transportation of

for some fund raising to help make sure our team has the right equipment to compete at peak
Please go to the Parent Volunteer link below and sign up to do your part to help with the team
organization. All help will be greatly appreciated.

the database of team members, communications, organizing volunteers, fundraising, etc. Please let
someone on the parent committee know if you are interested in helping the committee.
