Dear DDD Families:
We get to have a Swim-A-Thon this year!
The DDD Swim-A-Thon is a special fundraiser in which swimmers earn money for our team by swimming lengths of the pool during a set period of time. This year’s event will take place on Wednesday, June 23 8:30 am - 12:45pm during regular practice times at Union Mine High school. The Swim-A- Thon is our only big fundraiser this year. When you have finished your laps you can hula hoop or play basketball. There will also be some fun competitions as biggest splash and silliest jump at the end of your practice time. Every child who participates gets to pick a prize from the prize table and they may pick two prizes if they swim more than there required laps. This year we have lots of fun prizes and gift certificates. The age group who has the most participation gets an ice cream party the following week at practice.
This year due to Covid restrictions parents are not allowed on the pool deck unless you are a volunteer who signed up to be a lap counter. Swimmers must come swim their laps at their practice time. You must exit the pool at the end of your practice time.
This event is a wonderful opportunity for the swimmers and families to come together, build confidence and teamwork in our athletes, and cheer one another on. This fundraising effort is especially important to DDD as we receive no support from public funds. DDD is a 501(c) nonprofit and is solely dependent on program fees, swim meet revenue and contributions from local businesses, family and friends. Funds raised during our Swim- A-Thon support the club by helping us keep registrations costs low amid rising pool rental fees.
Our Swim-A-Thon goal this year is $5,000. Thank you in advance for providing this generation of swimmers and those of the future with an opportunity to pursue swimming with Dry Diggins Dolphins. Thank you to our sponsors who donated prizes: Knotty Pines Lanes Pollock Pines, RIYO Frozen Yogurt Lotus, Action Whitewater Lotus, Green House Café Placerville, Swim Labs El Dorado Hills.
