Board of Directors

 

TIDE Swimming is managed by a Board of Directors comprised of parent volunteers and five non-voting staff members.

 

The Board of Directors is the governing body created to provide legislative, financial, and administrative guidance and support to the coaching staff for the daily operation of TIDE Swimming. The Board also engages in long term strategic planning to assure that Tide Swimming remains viable for many years to come.
