We need to fundraise each season to keep our Club fees as affordable as possible for Bow Valley families and to keep our Club viable.

We ask that each family participate in the fundraising programs outlined below:

Grocery cards – Families are encouraged to purchase a minimum of $200/month of Save-on-Foods gift cards. The club receives 10% back. 

Swim-a-thon – Swim-a-thon is the major fundraising event in which all clubs in Canada participate.  It promotes and finances amateur competitive swimming.  The purpose of Swim-a-thon is to raise money for our club in a marathon swim through obtaining pledges for so much per length swum, or a pre-determined amount. Every Riptide participates in the swim and, while fundraising is not mandatory, it’s encouraged.

Swim Meets – Funds are raised through meet entry fees.  For the 20-21 season, the Club will be hosting one 2 day meet and two novice meets. Parents are needed to volunteer as officials. Training is provided by the club.

CasinoOur next casino fundraiser is in 2023.

Wine Survivor Raffle – For White, Red and Gold groups in 2021
