Annual Swim A Thon Fundraiser. Please be advised, we are hosting our annual Swim A Thon Fundraiser on Wednesday, March 1st, 2017. 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 charged by Team Unify. 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. The fun news is that we will be swimming an “Open Water” format this year. Buoys will be placed in the water and our swimmers will need to swim around the buoys without touching a wall. We are still considering adding some “on land” portion to the event. Stay tuned!
Swimmer in the Spotlight and Team Newsletter. I am pleased to announce that we are reinstating both our “Swimmer in the Spotlight” (SIS) as well as our Team Newsletter (The Wave) very soon. It was unfortunate that both publications had to be put on hiatus, but we always intended to bring them back and the time is now! Both publications will be bi-monthly. The “Swimmer in the Spotlight” highlights an athlete from every group within our program. This includes the gym, masters, triathletes, and our traditional structure. 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. Maybe they simply work harder and smarter than anyone else. Or, maybe it is simply, they charm their coach the best! Regardless of how/why, their coach clearly thinks highly enough of them to recognize them by posting their picture and submitting a brief write up about them. The Team Newsletter will feature articles from coaches as well as outside aficionados. Both will be emailed out to the membership and will also be kept on our website for easy referral.
