Hello WCSC Parents and Swimmers!

COMMUNICATION

We have several ways we are communicating with you this season. Email, Facebook, our new communication board up at practices and meets, and by text. To receive text messages make sure that in your account on our web page you have put in your cell number AND hit the verify tab next to your cell number.

TP TRADITION

Our Nightriders (15-18 age group) have a long tradition of TPing WCSC houses throughout the swim season. This tradition is very special and fun for the kids and waking up being TPed is supposed to be an honor and spread our team spirit. We encourage families to partake in this tradition, and want to emphasize that we do this as a fun team activity, and do not mean any offense by it.However, we understand that some families would prefer to not participate in this tradition. If you want to opt out, please email the Nightriders at nightriders@walnutcreekswimclub.org

FUNDRAISING

We have three main fundraising focuses this year.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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 is on now!

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