Our Swim-a-thon this year is scheduled for the week of April 2nd-6th.

We have changed the date in hopes for cooperative weather and to not interfere with summer plans for our families. We will be sending out a more detailed time schedule next week. Your swimmer will be doing the swim-a-thon during their scheduled practice day.

Please read the information below regarding this year’s Swim-a-thon and our team goal.

We will be having parent meetings next week to go over any questions about the Swim-a-thon. We will be holding the meetings on pool deck on:

Wednesday , March 7th at 5:30.

Tuesday, March 13th at 5:30 and 6:30

Please try to attend one of these meetings.


When? April 2nd-6th

What is a Swim-a-thon?

This is our major fundraiser for the year. Swimmers attempt to complete 200 laps in 2 hours or less (for younger swimmers, their goal is to complete as many laps as they can in 2 hours). Prior to the event, they obtain sponsors. They can be sponsored “per lap” (make sure you tell the potential sponsor they are aiming for 200 laps) or they can ask for a lump sum donation (most common).

Why have a Swim-a-thon? Participating in our Swim-a-Thon is a highly effective and FUN way to raise money.

What is our fundraising goal?

Each swimmer on the team needs to raise $100. This money helps our team attend competitive meets and run our high quality program at low monthly fees.

Where to start?

Please see the email sent to the team today with more information.
