What is the Provincial Events Task Force?

SSO is looking for a CREATIVE group of volunteers to BRAINSTORM ways to make synchro competitions more

ENGAGING, MEANINGUL and ENJOYABLE for participants & spectators. This Task Force is NON-TECHNICAL.

It is about thinking of creative, feasible ways to improve the experience of our competitions – no synchro-specific knowledge is necessary!

 

Who are we looking for?

We want a great cross-section of volunteers from all areas of the province! Are you a former swimmer? A parent of a new swimmer? A Coach? An experienced synchro parent? A club volunteer? An official? We want you!

 

What is involved?

The Provincial Events Task Force will:

  • Consist of approximately 5-7 members from across the province
  • Be supported from the SSO Sport Development Manager
  • Meet at the June AGM and the September Conference
  • Participate in 5 Conference Calls between October 2016 and March 2017
  • Recommend feasible improvements that can be easily implemented to improve Synchro Swim Ontario Provincial Events

 

To Apply:

Please send an email to Rachel Klein, Sport Development Manager: rklein@synchroontario.com

Include your NAME, CLUB (if applicable), EMAIL, and a contact NUMBER, and a short BIO paragraph explaining how your experience would benefit this task force.
