Many of the swimmers that compete in the Arena Pro Swim Series at Charlotte are college students. Remember how broke you were in college? They need a place to stay, some help with transportation to/from the pool, and food. In return, you get to experience the event from a competitor's point of view, a really appreciative athlete, and a great role model for any aspiring student-athletes in your family. SwimMAC families that host receive two complimentary all-session tickets to the event.If you host two athletes, you are provided four tickets! Click here for more information or to sign up.

We depend on our awesome SwimMAC members to fill all of the jobs necessary to make the Arena Pro Swim Series at Charlotte the high-quality, smoothly-run, exciting event that it is. There are LOTS of different roles to fill, so it's easy to find something that suits your preferences and your schedule. Volunteer sign-ups will go online through Team Unify in March and will be active through the end of April.
