Hello Paseo Families,
The time is rolling around for our annual Paseo Aquatics Swim-A-Thon! This is our once-a-year fundraiser that will take place Saturday, April 18th from 9am-12pm at the Castaic Aquatic Center. 2020 is a special year not only because of the Summer Olympics, but we are also hosting our first ever Winter Age-Group Championship Meet!
After recently reaching our Level 3 tier with USA Swimming, we couldn't be happier with the amazing Paseo swimmers and families that have helped us along the way and we are so grateful for your support! Our goal this year is to raise $25,000 to cover the expenses of our Level 3 club. This helps us secure great coaches for our swimmers as well as buy about 10 more Paseo Canopies as well as backstroke wedges, and help fund the yearly budgets for areas such as equipment that assists us in coaching, coach education, team travel and hosting great meets for our swimmers, families and the overall swimming community in Southern California.
Also, at this year's swim-a-thon, we are going to shake things up. We will have fun relay races (older and younger kids), games, prizes and of course the coveted "Coaches Pie in the Face" event!
As always, there will be awards to our contributors and we look forward to another super fund-raiser for Paseo Aquatics!
Please come together to help us reach our goal this year. Our effort is endless to this team from each and every coach. Let’s continue to collectively build for a greater future.
In addition, Off the Block Swim Company (founded by our own, Helena Salvino) and Swim Works will be on deck that day. Families will be able to order personalized caps and get fitted for team warm-ups and swim suits as well.
From the depths of my soul -- thank you. What we all do each and every day for the kids will shape their youth and onward into adulthood.
