2021-2022 Swim-Athon

Swim-A-Thon is an annual fundraiser held by every swim club across Canada. It is a 2 hour event during which swimmers will swim for 5000m or 2 hours, whichever comes first! Participating in this type of a swim challenge is an amazing accomplishment for our swimmers and it is also the best way for swimmers to raise funds that directly benefit the club. The Newmarket Stingrays receive 90% of every dollar raised by the swimmers. Swim-a-thon fundraising dollars help the club offset fees associated with pool bookings, maintaining a top tier coaching staff and upgrading our available technologies for stroke assessment and improvement. Many of you will have seen the coaches with iPads on deck as well as video equipment both on deck and in-water – all of which are made possible with funds raised through Swim-A-Thon.

Please go to our club link at www.ontarioswimathon.ca/new , register your swimmer, and start spreading the word to family, friends, business colleagues, social contacts, and community members that support the sport of swimming.

Funds are used to offset pool costs, acquire advanced technologies to assist coaches and contribute to the further advancement of the training environment for your swimmer. Please also remember that funds raised through Swim-a-thon are not associated with the fundraising commitment to the club.

Good luck with your fundraising - let’s go Stingrays families!
