KidSport's eighth annual Give the Gift of Sport Campaign is now live!
  We are calling all Canadians to give the  #GiftofSport this holiday season.
Over 30 percent of Canadian youth under the age of 18 cannot afford to play organized sport. With the help of Canadians across the country, our campaign will run through to January 6, 2020-aiming to get more kids off the sidelines, into the game, and experience the gift of sport! 
Every dollar raised in Kamloops will stay in our community to support youth and their families.  #SoALLKidsCanPlay

Kamloops Classic Swimming is Looking for Volunteers for our MJB Law Classic Swim Meet on  December 13 to 15, 2019
Are you a swimming fan?
Do you love helping out groups in your community?
Are you looking to add some volunteer experience to your resume?
No matter your reason we would love to have your help at our swim meet.
Our biggest need for volunteers at our swim meets is for Timers. 
Timing is a super easy job. It involves checking the swimmer into your lane. You then watch them race and ensure you push the plunger as the swimmer turns at the wall and when the swimmer hits the wall at the end of the race. For long distance events, there is a requirement to count the lengths and let the swimmer know when they are on the last 50 meters by ringing a bell.   Physical requirements are standing and sitting, ability to slightly lean over the ledge to see the swimmer touch the wall.   There is an orientation session at the start of each session, so no worries if you are new to the role.   We will pair new timers with experienced timers. We are also happy to pair friends together to time.   Anyone 13 years and older can time.
Have some experience with competitive swimming, looking to hone your skills at swim meets?   We could use a few volunteers who want to learn stroke and turn judging or how the electronics timing system works.
We provide some great food for our volunteers during the sessions.
Come spend some time in a welcoming environment
We need volunteers for the following sessions:

Friday December 13, 2019 from 7:45 am to approximately 1:30 pm
