Big Buddy Little Buddy Picnic: June 11

Swim Squad Goals! At the Buddy Picnic, younger swimmers (most likely 10 & under) will be paired with an older swimmer (most likely 11 & up) for dinner and games. Older swimmers will bring dinner of their buddy's choosing, and the younger swimmers will bring dessert and a drink to share. Then it is games galore and of course the initiation of new 15-18s by becoming a human sundae.  Pairings will be sent out by Friday, June 7th so that buddy's have time to meet before the picnic. The hope is that the buddies continue their friendship throughout the season by cheering each other on at races, making each other signs, hanging out at meets, and checking in with each other at practices, just to name a few ideas. Please sign up by Sunday, June 2nd to give us time match buddies.

Jobs Update

Thanks to all of you who volunteered at our first two home meets to help it run smoothly and successfully!  We appreciate your commitment and support. Reminders about jobs:

  • If you have not signed up for your 6 job requirements, please log onto Team Unify website and sign up ASAP so that we can ensure our meets are covered.  There are still several timer positions available for away meets. If there are no job sign-ups available, please contact me and we will arrange for other opportunities.

  • Our snack shack is one of our busiest and most successful fund-raising activities and it needs your help.  If you are signed up for snack shack back kitchen prep and snack shack early shift, PLEASE ARRIVE at your scheduled early start time so that the snack shack is ready to roll when the meet starts.

  • Any questions, please contact Aimee at jobs@walnutcreekswimclub.org. Thank you!

 

Fundraising

We have three main fundraising focuses this year.

  1. The first is our All City meet. This is our BIGGEST fundraiser of the year and we need ALL hands on deck starting now. Recruit for ads and shout outs to be placed in our All City program starting now. Email allcity@walnutcreekswimclub.org for more info.

  2. The second is through team sponsors . Tap into your network of awesome businesses to sponsor our team. For info and sponsors packages, email fundraising@walnutcreekswimclub.org

  3. The third is our Swim-A-Thon hosted by our Nightriders. This will be July 11 during practice and our goal is $2000 to raise money for our Nightriders to support all the events/activities they do for the team. If every swimmer raises at least $20, we will meet our goal. Go to our home page to track our team progress, set up your donation page and donate. The race will start June 1st.

We are in need of a fundraising chair person. Please email fundraising@walnutcreekswimclub.org if you are interested or want more info.
