Annual Swim A Thon Fundraiser. Please be advised, we are hosting our annual Swim A Thon Fundraiser on Thursday, April 14, 2016 (changed from April 13th). Our goal is to raise $20,000. You can learn more by clicking the “Swim A Thon” logo on the home page of our website, buenaventuraswimclub.org. Donations can be made online right from our website, however, be advised, there is a $3.95 processing fee. If you would like to avoid this fee, you can mail donations to Buenaventura Swim Club, P.O. Box 3934, Ventura CA, 93006. Be sure to denote your swimmers name and training group.
Swimmer in the Spotlight. Did you know that we select a bi-monthly “Swimmer in the Spotlight?” We do so for each training group, including our adult masters program. Our goal is to recognize a swimmer who stands out from his/her peers by one of various mechanisms. Perhaps they bring perfect attendance, coupled with the best attitude, or maybe they simply work harder and smarter than anyone else, or as it may be, they charm their coach the best! Regardless of how, their coach thinks highly enough of them to recognize them by posting their picture and submitting a brief write up about them. Check out our home page and click on the box that says “Swimmers in the Spotlight” to read about our latest spotlight recipients. Congratulations to the following members: Karina Garcia – Masters, Jurgen Covault – Seniors, Nathan Willeford – Gold, Alayna Lindstrom – Silver, James Johnson – Bronze A, Rebecca Marsing – Bronze B, Rebeca Hu – Pre-Competitive Group!
Coastal Champs “Home” Swim Meet. Coastal Champs will be posted online, by Thursday, February 4th. Since this is a “home” meet, we are responsible for the operation of this meet. There will be two separate sign ups. The first will be for your swimmer’s individual events, the second will be for a volunteer job. This is the best way for our members to earn hours toward their annual requirement of 30 volunteer hours per family.
