Tornadoes Swim Team Timing System Project
The Tornadoes Swim Team is currently trying to raise funds to purchase our own timing system. The timing system will allow our team to hold our own swim meets. This will not only reduce our individual and team's costs for traveling, meet fees, etc., but it will also enable our team to raise money during these meets through heat sheets, concessions, and meet fees that we can charge incoming teams.
The timing system we are planning to purchase comes from Colorado Time Systems. CTS has been the leader in sports timing for over 40 years, and is the only aquatic sports timing equipment vendor whose products are listed for use in a pool environment by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. to the United States and Canadian safety standards.
The timing system includes a computer console, the software, a 6-lane touchpad system, a start system with lights and speakers, and a scoreboard. The entire system including tax, delivery, installation, and training will cost almost $18,000.
While this is a big investment for our team, the long term benefits of purchasing this system far outweigh the cost.
How Are We Raising The Funds?
We will be announcing more fundraising efforts soon. Stay tuned.
