Swim-a-Thon Setup Details

Set a goal for how far you will swim with your coach and then on Saturday May 12th - along with the rest of the team, plunge in and paddle, glide, kick and splash your way to your goal.

You can totally do this! You are a Marlin so you know you've got this.

And afterwards... we'll gather and have a massive pancake breakfast!!! Like a party but on Saturday morning with syrup rather than icing on the cake!!

Our swim-a-thon is important for three reasons:

   1. Spirit - to foster team and club spirit among families and swimmers. (The party part.)
   2. Goal - to have swimmers set and obtain an endurance based swim goal. (The big fish part.)
   3. Funds - to raise funds to help sustain our swim club, such as pool rental. (The keep the club going part.)

For the fundraising part, all the swimmers try to get as many sponsors as possible. So help your mom or dad or guardian to create your very own profile page on this website: If you have more than one swimmer you can log on as a family.  Then email it to grandma and grandpa, aunties, uncles, cousins, friends, etc etc... Even a lit bit of support helps because every little bit adds up to a whole big bit. This fundraiser helps us pay for our pool rentals for the year. 

Watch for updates through out the month about prizes and new sponsorships.

Swim Like A Marlin and Have Fun!!!!!!
