YOS is all about its members, it is you that makes it great.  Each swim session requires a team of people to ensure everything runs smoothly.  That includes making tea, checking swimmers in and out, helping new members, providing safety cover and lots more.

If you can help out we provide full training, refreshments and free swims in return.

This is a Google document which you can edit by adding your name to the relevant session and a committee member will approve your addition.  Here is a link to the editable document:


If you have difficulty with the Google Doc you can email admin@yorkshireoutdoorswimmers.co.uk and let us know which session you would like to help out and what area you would prefer (Safety, Galley etc..)

To help with safety cover on the powerboat you must have appropriate training.
YOS can offer volunteer training for all roles including Open Water Lifeguard, PowerBoat, Safety Boat, PaddleBoard and Kayak.
Please speak to a member of the YOS committee to find out more.
