Just a reminder that our Swim-A-Thon fundraiser event is just 2 weeks away! Tell your swimmers to grab a kickboard and come out for a night of swimming laps and having fun with their team-mates!
The Swim-A-Thon is an annual fundraiser hosted by PTAC each season. This year our Swim-A-Thon will take place on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 from 5-7 p.m.
Swim-A-Thon solicitation packets are available for pick up in the pool office. Each family is asked to pick up a packet if they will be choosing to solicit donations from family, friends and neighbors. Donations can be solicited either per lap, per time frame, or as a flat donation. The maximum amount permitted under our USA Swimming guidelines is 200 laps or 2 hours. If your swimmer does not wish to solicit donations, they can opt for the $25.00 buyout - the buyout amount applies PER FAMILY. This is a mandatory fundraiser for all team members with the exception of our high school level swimmers.
Swimmers who solicit per lap donations are required to have a parent or guardian on deck to count laps. PTAC coaches will be on deck to supervise the event and provide a safe pool environment - coaches will not be available to count laps for any swimmers.
If your family will be opting for the buyout, your swimmers are still invited and encouraged to attend the event. Those using the buyout options are not required to attend the actual event to swim laps. All swimmers attending the event will receive a participation award. There is no minimum amount of laps required to participate, nor do swimmers have to complete all 200 laps or remain for the full 2 hours.
Please note that the Swim-A-Thon will replace all practice sessions for the night of Wednesday, February 25, 2015.
