Team Shirts and other Swim Club Apparel

We have partnered with a new local business, Daisy Designs, to supply our team shirts and team apparel. All ordering is online at https://daisysdesigns.ecwid.com/. Select “tiger sharks” from the list at the top of the website to see all items available. We would like to HIGHLY encourage the team shirts – available in black – as they will have the sponsor list on the back. Other items available for purchase include long sleeve shirts, sweatshirts, swim towels, dry-fit options (long sleeve and short sleeve), beanie hats, pom-pom hats, etc. Embroidered items can all be personalized, if you wish. And, adult and child sizes are available. Let me know if there is something you want that is not on the website.

Website will be open 9/20 – 10/1 for ordering. It will take 2-3 weeks (after website closes) for items to arrive.

 

Restaurant Night(s)

We would like to hear feedback on scheduling restaurant nights throughout the season. If we scheduled them, would you go to these? Is anyone interested in helping reach out to local restaurants to help set up?

 

Kroger Community Rewards

Please see additional handout on an EASY way to earn money for the swim club while you shop at our local Kroger, simply by using your Kroger card. Just to give you a perspective, last quarter (April – June), we received ~$65 from seven households. Sign up is a one-time deal and no cost to you - reach out if you need assistance!

 

Amazon Smile

Who’s ready for holiday shopping?! J Similar to the Kroger program, Amazon also offers a “give-back” program just for shopping for your everyday “needs”. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization. Ways to sign up and use Amazon smile:

  1. Please go to https://smile.amazon.com/ch/35-1963913  and sign in with your Amazon login/password and shop as you always do. This link will automatically select Lebanon Swim Club as your charitable organization.
  2.  Or, go to smile.amazon.com, login with your username/password, and search “Lebanon Swim Club” as the charitable organization on the far right-hand side.
  3. Amazon Smile is now available in the mobile app!  See the instructions here to link your mobile account.

 

Sponsorships

Maybe a surprise to some, the easiest way to get money to support the swim club is to ask for it! We have created a sponsor letter that explains the Club, why they should support us, and the opportunities we have available.Our last “sponsor push” (albeit small) was in January/February 2019, but this year we plan to do another “push” (hopefully larger and with more effort) this fall/winter. If this is in your forte and/or have time during business hours to reach out/go to local business, please let us know. Or, if you are a business owner or know one who might want to support the club, please take a letter with you. I have a full list of over 100 businesses we reached out to by mail in the past, as well as a list of our current sponsors if you would like/need further information.

 

Annual Swim-A-Thon

The Annual Swim-A-Thon is our most successful fundraising event; however, due to COVID, we’ve had to take a year off. For multiple reasons, we would like to have this event in December and potentially pair it with a fun, holiday party for our swimmers! We WILL need help with this event…looking for 3 – 4 individuals to help with party planning, marketing, getting swimmers and folks excited, prizes, etc.Please let us know if you can help!
