The fundraising opportunities offered by the OSSSC allow families the ability to offset some of the costs of swimming by fundraising. All families are encouraged to partake or penalty fees will be applied.
Bottle Drive ($75 penalty fee per swimmer per bottle drive)
We will be holding two bottle drives this year, one on May 28th, 2019, 5-7:30pm and the other on July 9th, 2019, 5-7:30pm. Swimmers and families are invited to meet at the Okotoks Bottle Depot, located at 211 Stockton Avenue, where you will be checked in (for attendance purposes) and assigned a part of town to go and collect in.
Each Bottle Drive you are required to sign in before 5:00pm and sign out between 7:15-7:30pm
If you are unable to attend on the evening of the bottle drives, you have two options;
(1) You may collect bottles in your own time and deposit an amount equivalent to $75 to the Okotoks Bottle Depot. If you do this, you will need to note the amount you collected in the OSSSC book (a Spiderman notebook) located at the bottle depot. You have to 1 week after the scheduled bottle drive to submit your bottles.
(2) If you are unable to attend the bottle drive, and you do not bring $75 worth of bottles into the depot 1 week following the schduled bottle drive, you will be charged the $75 penalty fee.
(3) We are accepting sponsorship in lieu of bottle drives. If you provide a sponsor of $250/swimmer, you can opt out of the two bottles drives. Sponsorship funds and agreement must be received prior to May 20th. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
NO SWIM PRACTICE during bottle drives. As this is such an important fundraiser for the club.
Please note: 3 volunteer points per family per bottle drive, if you provide and drive a vehicle for the entire duration of the bottle drive.

Swimmers in these 3 groups are required to complete a madatory fundraiser of $3000 to help cover the cost of the additional practice times and swim meets. The details of this fundraiser will be released before May 15 of the year.
