WE NEED YOUR ACTIVE SUPPORT
Welcome to the New Canaan YMCA Aquatic Club Parents' Association. Our mission is to help support the club's activities. This support comes in two ways: Financial and through active parent involvement in swim meets and special team events.
Why Financial Support?
The New Canaan YMCA earmarks significant funds from its general operating budget to support the club. However, these monies are not sufficient to fully cover all the program costs assocated with running the team and paying for our athletes' participation in competitive swim meets. Therefore, all families pay dues and other assessments to fill in financially where the Y cannot.
Why Parent Involvement?
The kids love it when they see their parent's working at a meet!! And the Club needs your help.
Sure, we are all busy, But it really is vital that parents give of their time throughout the season to participate directly in helping run meets and Club special events. Home meets galvanize our swimmers, earn the Club respect within the Connecticut swimming community and are an important revenue-generating function for the Club. Money earned from home meets brings in income and actually reduces the dues you pay. Most of all, it's fun and rewarding to know that your time helps support events that your children work very hard to compete in.
