The HAC Committee

Show More

Hackney Aquatics Club is run entirely by volunteers. Once a year, at our AGM, we elect the officers of the Club​, as nominated by the members. The Committee meets formally once a month to discuss club business, and frequently between those meetings. We are always looking for new members to join the Committee, but we appreciate that for some the commitment is not realistic.

We would love to hear from you, whatever your ability to contribute, and we have a dedicated volunteer manager, Frauke Westgate, who can tell you more about volunteering opportunities with HAC. We do entirely rely on volunteers from the Club to make everything from galas to club events work, so we really appreciate whatever you are able to offer. For more information on parent volunteering and training opportunities please click here.

Our Young Volunteers help first and foremost with coaching and team management but can be seen supporting all aspects of the club.
