Are you a big fan of the Killer Whales?  Do you want to help guide our team's growth or shape new directions?  Join us!  As you know from our prior announcement, two board members will be rotating off at the end of this season.  In order start a new season next year, we will need two new Killer Whales to join the ranks!  Primary responsibilities of the board include the following:

Monthly meetings from February through July
Coach interviews and hiring
Selecting team suits and planning registration
Arranging and communicating plans for the season (practices, volunteers, etc)
Preparing for Meets
End of Season Awards and Celebration - organized by a committee of volunteers

A cooperative effort on the part of board members and documented processes have helped to streamline planning and organizing tremendously.  We would welcome your fresh perspective and energy on the board.  Please consider joining us and help our team have a KILLER 2014.

Killer Whales volunteer at the Raleigh Ironman!

Thank you to all who were able to join us volunteering at the inaugural Raleigh Ironman on June 2nd!  The Ironman started with a 1.2 mile swim in Jordan Lake.  The athletes then left Chatham County on their bikes for the 56 mile trek into downtown Raleigh.  They finished the race with a running tour (to the tune of 13.1 miles) of Raleigh's famous landmarks to finish on Fayetteville Street.

We manned Run Station #1 which placed us in the best spot to watch the runners!  On one side of Hillsborough Street the racers were roughly one mile into their last leg of the race.  On the other side, they were less than one mile to the finish line!  It was great to cheer on such dedicated athletes when they needed it most, some after racing for in excess of 4 hours!  We cheered them on while we handed out water, ice, Powerade, and snacks.
