Volunteer Info

Volunteers rule!

We could not put on events without awesome folks like you! All volunteers will receive a swanky MOWS shirt, refreshments and praise from our athletes! Please take a look at our available options and we will assign you based on your interest.

It's never too early to volunteer!

Planning Committee

The planning comittee meets several times throughout the year to discuss the previous swim, improve our ideas, and plan the next event.  We divide up the tasks needed to plan and put on a great event every year.

To volunteer for the planning comittee, please contact volunteer.mows@gmail.com.

Race Day Volunteers

We need race day volunteers to:

  1. SET-UP: volunteers will help set up tents as early as 5:30am on the day of the event.
  2. REGISTRATION CHECK-IN: volunteers will be on their feet for at least one hour; duties include finding registration packet during check-in, and certifying that all necessary equipment is in packet (timing chip, etc.)
  3. LIFEGUARDS: should have current Red Cross Lifesaving certificate; may be on a paddleboard, power boat or pontoon.  Need to have thorough understanding of the MOWS Safety Plan.  Lifeguards will be paid $10/hr for a minimum of five (5) hours.
  4. CLEAN-UP: Pick up litter and trash on the site; deflate buoys; deconstruct tables and put in available trucks.
