Envious Splash Club

We hold our Splash Club meetings the second Monday of every month.  These meetings will be held at Brewed Awakenings in Johnston or Ruby Tuesdays in Johnston and start at 7:00.  We hope to see you there!   

MISSION STATEMENT:
The Envious Swimming Splash Club’s mission is to assist Envious Swimming in
providing a positive environment where athletic excellence and good sportsmanship are
encouraged. Through a quality swim program, swimmers will learn skills in leadership,
teamwork, respect, self-discipline and good character.
GOALS:
The goals of the Envious Swimming Splash Club are to advance swimming as a
lifetime sport, host swim meets, provide financial support for the swim team and its members,
and to organize events and parties that will support the swimmers and their families.
The Envious Swimming Splash Club recognizes the importance of our swim families in
the success of our swimmers. No swim team can function without the support of the swim
families, swimmers and coaches. The Envious Swimming Splash Club was organized with
this in mind. This club is run by parents. The Envious Swimming Splash Club is an IRS recognized nonprofit
501(c)3 organization that is dedicated to supporting Envious Swimming and promoting swimming in
the area. Part of the role of the Envious Swimming Splash Club is to encourage volunteerism
among swim parents, fundraise, develop team policies, and educate new and existing swim
families.
BENEFITS:
Ability to vote on how fundraising/swim meet proceeds are distributed, i.e. new
equipment, clothing, awards, championship and team travel meets, annual banquet, and other
team sponsored events.
A chance to have a voice related to important matters that affect every child on the
team.
