Gulf Swimming Athletes Committee
Athlete Rep Basics
Have you ever wondered how decisions get made in the gulf? By being a Gulf Athlete Representative, you can have a bigger involvement in your local swim committee (LSC). This may all seem daunting, but it's really not as scary as it sounds.
We are looking for 2 athletes per team to represent the swimmers on that club. All of these athletes serve on at least one sub-committees (banquet, technical planning, finance, safe sport, governance, and the publicity committee). We have many positions that you can be elected for: Senior Rep, Junior Rep, 3 At-Large Reps, and Committee Leadership positions. Here is are roster for 2018-2019.
There are House of Delegates (HOD) meetings where the board presents things that they have worked on to a big group of people for confirmation. Board of directors (BOD) meetings are more frequent and they consist of various committees presenting what they have been working on for confirmation. Your job is to participate on a committee and give input from an athletes perspective and attend house and/or board meetings. You must also let your team know about any important information that you learn about from these meetings. Here is the general schedule.
If you are interested in being an athlete rep, talk to your coach. If they give you permission, email us with your coaches approval and fill out our athlete rep form.
Vision Statement: Empowering all athletes to be leaders.
