Welcome Winskill Dolphins Families to Swim-A-Thon 2018!

On behalf of the board and coaching staff, we are excited to announce our Swim-A-Thon campaign this year.  Once again, our club will be fundraising using Swim Canada’s online program, allowing us to raise money quickly and easily from our devices and computers.

Fundraising Goal:

Our WDSC Swim-A-Thon fundraising event is on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at the Winskill Aquatic & Fitness Centre.  Our club this year has a goal to raise $25,000 and all donations help create opportunities to enhance the club’s aquatic programs, purchase new equipment and maintain affordable training fees.

To attend this event, please go to the WDSC link at:

Early Bird Challenge:

We encourage all parents to go online and assist your swimmer with the registration.

Start early and register your swimmer or family. Complete your registration on or before February 1st and earn a prize.  It’s that simple!

Thank you to Colleen & Natalie Real Estate Specialists with RE/MAX Progroup Realty, the proud Swim-A-Thon 2018 sponsor & donor of the Winskill Dolphins’ “Early Bird” challenge and for the many upcoming trivia and random draw prize giveaways.

Register & Donate:

  • Please go to our club link at
  • Register your swimmer or family and create a profile page
  • For families with multiple swimmers, we suggest to enter your last name eg. Smith Family.  We do suggest this if multiple swimmers, it is easier for a donor to go just to one site to donate
  • Start fundraising and spread the word to family, friends, business colleagues, social contacts and people you know that support the sport of swimming in our community, province and Canada.
  • Log into your account at any time to check your progress or make changes.  
  • Online donations will be accepted until Thursday, March 1, 2018.

Note:   This year Swimming Canada is unable to issue any receipts in any circumstance.  You may find out more information here:
