2019 BSO Swim Meet Invitational - Saturday, May 11th

Bethlehem Special Olympics (BSO) is hosting our 8th Invitational Swim Meet on Saturday, May 11th, 2019 at Liberty High School. We are in need of many volunteers for many different areas. The meet runs from 8:30am until around 4:30pm. We cannot run this meet without volunteers so please consider signing up to help. BSO and our athletes really look forward to this meet and really appreciate all the help from every volunteer. We could not run this meet without you!

Volunteers who can volunteer the entire day will receive a volunteer t-shirt and will be provided lunch. On Friday, May 10th at Liberty from 6:30-7:30 we'll also be providing an overview of what specific roles (mainly heat escorts, runners, and stagers) will need to do during the meet. If you sign up to be a heat escort, stager, timer, lifeguard, pool deck volunteer, or for registration please try to make it to our Friday night overview.

Unless a different time is specified, all slots are needed for the entire meet time (8:30am-4:30pm). If you cannot commit to the entire day please do not sign up on Sign up Genius and contact me, Dana Lindsey, via email with the time that you are available.

For any students in need of volunteer service hours this is a great way to receive a lot of hours in a weekend; estimated to be 6-8  hours on Saturday and another hour for the overview on Friday evening. Please bring volunteer service forms on Friday and the day of the event to be signed at the end of the meet.

An email address is required to sign up to volunteer. If you do not have an email address or have any additional questions you can contact Dana Lindsey at [email protected] (preferred method of contact), call or text at 267-221-7740. I will send out confirmation emails leading up to the event.

T-shirts are going to be ordered soon, so if you sign up after Friday, April 26th there is no guarantee that you'll receive a volunteer t-shirt. 

Thanks again for volunteering!
