In the group race for the pizza party, DAG has a substantial lead on all other groups.
DSSC is offering up an IPad Mini to the single highest earner as of April 28th, so if you haven't started fundraising it isn't too late to start. Go to http://bcswimathon.ca/delta to register your athlete.
Swim-a-thon, regarlless of whether or not you fundraise is a great challenge for every swimmer. DSSC coaches endeavour to make the 1 or 2 hour event as positive as possible with kids being prepped in practice with longer swims and lots of talk surrounding the event. We encourage everyone, regardless of the group they are in or whether or not they fundraise to come out and participate.
Congratulations to all our fundraisers on a great
See you at the pool!
