While we understand local businesses and community members are often asked to support many causes in the community, we would like to ask you to consider how you can support this year-round youth sporting organization.  The Manhattan Marlins take pride in being a cohesive community-connected organization dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle through the sport of swimming.

Our team participates in swimming competitions throughout the year across the state and the region, affiliated with the Missouri Valley District.  We also host two major meets each year.  Monster Splash October 29-30, 2016 and the Little Apple Invitational June 10-11, 2017 will bring hundreds of swimmers and their families into Manhattan for a weekend.  We ask you to consider sponsoring our program for the upcoming year.  We strongly believe that our program contributes significantly to the development of our community’s future.  By supporting the Manhattan Marlins Swim Team, you will be investing in local youth.  Sponsorships assist with our scholarship program, pool rental fees, equipment, and coaching fees.

With your sponsorship, we would like to recognize you publicly, and each level of sponsorship provides different recognition opportunities.  We are a not-for-profit organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, therefore, contributions are tax deductible in accordance with §170 of the Internal Revenue Code.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Eileen Hayden. Thank you for your consideration of supporting the only youth swim team in the area.  Click here for a sponsorship form.



The Marlins wish to acknowledge and thank our sponsors for supporting age group and senior competitive swimming in Manhattan, KS.  We encourage our swim team members, their families and friends to support our sponsors.
