The Swim-a-thon is back for 2022/23! The online platform raised over $735,000 for swim clubs across Canada in 2021/22! This is another great opportunity for our club to raise a significant amount of dollars through donations. In an effort to streamline fundraising efforts and increase the accessibility of Swim-a-thon across the country, Swimming Canada has created a custom fundraising platform! Their new platform was built exclusively to meet the fundraising needs of our swimming community!

 

All St. James Seals swimmers were provided with a link to create their own account and goals to share with friends and family to start their fundraising efforts!

 

The new system tracks some exciting features!

  • Personalized Swimmer Sites for our Swimmers
  • Ability for us to track in real time donations and registrations so we don’t have to extend or chase down families and swimmers.
  • All Donations are Online (via Credit Cards) reducing almost 90% of administrative time
  • Great prizes for swimmers to be entered to win when they hit certain targets! (Valued over $20,000!)
  • Ability to create a competition within our club between divisions if you desire

 

For 2022/23 our club has a goal to raise $15,000.  These funds will benefit the entire club by helping keep fees down, support the club's operational expenses (pool fees, etc), supporting new equipment purchases, & help create a positive experience for our membership. With your help, we know we can achieve this goal!

 

Our Swim-A-Thon will involve all swimmers and will be held across a Wednesday (Competitive) & Thursday (Developmental) in Spring 2023 (Dates TBD)
