Volunteering

At Deerfield we have NO VOLUNTEER DEPOSIT REQUIRED which is rare throughout the league.

We like to think it's because we have the best volunteers!

All you need to do is sign up under each swim meet under Meets and Events for the type of work that you'd like to do. Most work is done in shifts and you can always get away to watch your child race.

Deerfield is recognized as one of the premier hosts throughout NWAL and it’s all because of our volunteers. No experience is needed as we’ll train you on the job.
