The HAC Committee & Other Volunteers

Show More

Hackney Aquatics Club is operated predominantly by volunteers, with the coaches being our only employees.

We would love to hear from you, whatever your ability to contribute, and we have a brilliant Volunteer Coordinator, Frauke Westgate, who can tell you more about parent volunteering opportunities with HAC. Volunteers are doing everything from liaising with Council, timekeeping at Galas and managing lost property so it finds its way home! So we appreciate and wholeheartedly encourage you to let us know if you're interested in helping out with any task, no matter how big or small!

HAC's Young Volunteers assist with coaching and team management while simultaneously gaining leadership and coaching skills. Many of our Young Volunteers are completing their DofE awards or are working towards a career in Swimming. In fact, a number of our current coaches were once Young Volunteers at HAC!

Each year at our AGM, we elect the officers of the Club​, as nominated by the members. The Committee then meets once a month to manage HAC's affairs. The 2020/21 Committee and their contact details and role descriptions are linked below.
