Volunteering & Officiating

DDO Volunteer Policy
• Becoming an official : FNQ or Swimming Canada


  • Competitive swimming is a sport that requires the support of the parents.
  • Swimming competitions are organized by parents who get involved with their club.
  • Those in charge of officials at competitions need at least 40 volunteers like you to fill various positions during the swim meets.
  • Each club must provide a number of volunteers that corresponds to at least 10% of the number of swimmers registered for the competition.
  • Without your participation, we are unable to organize competitions or participate in competitions organized by other clubs.
  • Your assistance is essential to the continuity of the DDO Swim Club. Our club is not immune to high turnover! Volunteers are generally involved for the duration of their children’s commitment to the sport; we need new parents to take over! Thank you for your involvement.
