Keep an eye on our practice schedule calendar, weekly e-mail newsletter and social media for details about Sacred Heart’s schedule.

Annual Beach Day at Brighton Beach on August 7
We are joining our friends Front Runners New York for our annual beach day tentatively scheduled for Sunday, August 7. We look forward to our annual open water swimming clinic coached by our very own Onesimo Demira. Front Runners’ Multi-Sport Committee will be preparing their members for the Staten Island Triathlon, but you can still join us if you just want to relax on the beach. In case of inclement weather or hazardous conditions in the ocean, our alternative date is Sunday, August 21. More details here.
Staff (Coaches, Gatekeepers & Clinic Instructors) and Volunteers Needed
Please note that we are searching for new staff: masters coaches, gatekeepers and clinic instructors. Coaches prepare workouts and coach our members for our masters program (our biggest needs are US Masters Swimming Coaches and USA Diving Certified Competition Coaches). Gatekeepers check in our members before each practice. We are also searching for clinic instructors as we work to rebuild our masters swimming clinic programs (LPZ and Adult Learn-to-Swim). Clinic instructors work with our clinic students in our clinic programs. For details about qualification, certifications, roles, duties and compensation, reach out to us at: email@example.com
Also note that our Board of Directors currently has two (2) vacant seats. Our all-volunteer Board of Directors runs our organization. For more information about our organizational governance, see our bylaws. In addition, you can volunteer to help organize without serving on the Board. If you want to help our team strategize and advance over the the next two years, please review our bylaws and send a statement of interest to our Co-Chairs, Tevin Williams and Shachar Keizman at: firstname.lastname@example.org
