About Volunteer Enrollment


Boat and Kayak volunteers

Volunteers are key to making our events safe and successful. At every race, we rely on volunteers at every stage: registering swimmers, seeing that everyone enters and leaves the water safely, and officiating along the course and at the finish line.

In addition, we welcome specialized volunteers to help with kayaking, boat captains, sponsorship development, marketing, press, bookkeeping, massage therapists, medical services and website administration. NYC Swim is extremely grateful to the kayaking community for their incredible event support over the years.


Escort and support boats are needed for many of our events, especially the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim. If you own a boat and are interested in signing up to help, please visit our Boater Enrollment Page.
