Swim-A-Thon Saturday, April 7th 7-10am--Please Donate!
Our Waves Swim-A-Thon is now live!  Last year we raised $8000 at our Annual Swim-A-Thon!  This year we hope to surpass that amount with a team goal of $10,000!  It's a great opportunity for the Waves to raise money for three great causes.  The Jimmy V. Foundation for Cancer Research, The South Shore Initiative (Waves Boosters and Travel Trips), and lastly to the USA Swimming Swim-A-Thon Foundation. We will have prizes for the Top Dollar Performer and the Top Roster Group Performers.  The Top Dollar Performer (individual who raises the most funds) will receive a $75.00 gift card to Swimoutlet!  The Roster Group that raises the most funds has a choice of A Chipotle Party, a Pizza Party, or an Ice Cream Sundae Party for their group held here at the Weymouth Club.  Just click on the link at the top of our Waves homepage to support all our great causes.  Thank you for your support! 

If you are writing a check for the Swim-A-Thon, please make it payable to “South Shore Initiative”.  SSI is the Weymouth Club’s non-profit group which provides financial assistance to Swim, Dance and Tennis.  Thank you for your donation!
