Swim-a-ThonTM is our biggest fundraising event of the year where swimmers earn money for our team by swimming lengths of the pool. Swimmers collect pledges from businesses, family, neighbors prior to swimming. Kings, Dream, Believe, Achieve, and Perform swimmers have a 2-hour period to swim a maximum of 200 lengths (5,000 yards).

Swim-a-ThonTM participants can earn cool prizes from the USA Swimming Foundation and from KSC; plus, qualified teams are automatically entered into the Swim-a-ThonTM contest where you'll have the opportunity to earn prize packages . . . one lucky team will win a visit from an Olympian!

As Swim-a-ThonTM is our premier fundraiser, it is imperative that all our swimmers participate. Each swimmer is required to collect a minimum of $150 ($75 for Kings) in pledges or donations.

Funds raised during the Swim-a-ThonTM fundraiser help pay for the following club essentials:

  • Supplement Dues
  • Pool time for training, equipment, and insurance
  • Coaches’ salaries, training, and travel
  • Scholarships

Five percent of funds help support the USA Swimming Foundation, which funds learn to swim and water safety programs nationwide, plus invests in building champion swimmers.

Swim-a-ThonTM funds also help keep monthly dues low for KSC members.
