Practice Schedule Changes for Swim-A-Thon on Feb 11th

Lou Petto

The 2023 SJAC Swim-A-Thon Fundraiser is going strong. Please keep it up with the donations as we are one week away from the event. The schedule for the day will be as follows:



6:30-8:30 am        Platinum/Senior/Senior II (200 Lap Goal)

8:30-10:30 am        Gold Select Elite/Gold Select/Gold Select II (200 Lap Goal)

10:30 am-12:30 pm    Gold/Gold II (200 Lap Goal)

12:30-2:00 pm        Silver/Silver II (100 Lap Goal)

2:00-3:30 pm        Bronze/Bronze II (50 Lap Goal)


This is the biggest fundraiser of the year for our team.  On February 11th, our swimmers will be swimming laps to raise money during practice.  We would love to have parents at practice to track your swimmer’s laps. We will have music playing, a movie showing and Snacks being served so please come out and join the fun!

During this Swim-a-Thon, swimmers will have a two-hour period (1.5 hours for Bronze and Silver Groups) in which to swim a maximum of 200 lengths (100 for Silver and 50 for Bronze). Donors are encouraged to support our athletes by pledging to support their efforts-either via a flat donation, or by pledging a certain amount of money per length that the swimmer completes.

Don’t forget, we are a 501.c.3 non-profit, so all donations are tax deductible!  Our Goal is for each swimmer to raise $100.  Below we put together a list of items we will be fundraising for this year!


Fundraising Items

$2,500 for Special Olympics-----Camden County sponsors our team and, because of last year’s success, they’ve asked us to expand our team!  This goes towards team uniforms, coaching expenses, and their banquet.

$12,000 Travel expenses-----We spend roughly $25,000 a year in travel expenses.  We would like to use this money to help off-set the total cost.  This would help to pay for vans, food, hotels, flights, gas and expenses for coaches.

$8000----Dryland Equipment for the team.

$1,700---Swim Bridge Buoys for NL and Giant Fitness

$4000----New Speaker System
