Swim A Thon
(this is a team hosted event)
We are holding a Swim A Thon this year in order to raise some funds to help cover some of the expenses the families incurred by sending their swimmers to Y Nationals. A portion of the money will also be used to purchse 2 backstroke wedges which we will use to help teach our swimmers better backstroke starts. A Swim A Thon is a team event. Swimmers should get sponsors to support their efforts in the pool. Sponsors may offer to pay swimmers a certain amount of money for every lap they swim, or may wish to pay a set amount no matter how many laps are swum. The Swim A Thon is done during a Saturday morning practice. The swimmers have 2 hours to swim a maximum of 200 laps.We will offer various prizes for different things like first person to bring in sonsor money, swimmer to raise the most money, etc. It would be great if we had everyone on the team participate and have each swimmer raise at least $20. Sponsor sheets will be attached shortly. We will also need a few parents to volunteer to count our swimmers' laps and to set up a bagel breakfast for all participants after the event ends.
