Laser Swimming Club is obliged to appoint a team manager for all galas and other officials such as timekeepers. Volunteers will generally be sought in the week prior to the gala, either for the whole gala or on a session-by-session basis (i.e. a different person for each gala session).

The Role of Team Manager document should be read as an indication of the duties of the team manager and while it may seem onerous, a lot of the issues are common sense.

Timekeeping responsibilities can be evenly shared among the parents. The first day is the hardest but you will always be placed alongside an experienced timekeeper who can show you the ropes.

Swim Ireland provide courses in the region in respect of Team Manager and Timekeeper duties.
