Finances & Fundraising

Finances

YMCA membership fees and team fees are paid to the YMCA and help the Y to pay the coaching staff as well as support staff needed to oversee/manage the team program. The team is in turn responsible for its own expenses such as transportation, meet entry fees, officials, meet ribbons, banquet awards, equipment, etc.


Fundraising

Meet Concessions

Our most frequent fundraiser is our concession stand at home meets. All families are asked to help provide the items sold at meets. Visit our Volunteer page to learn more. 

Gear Sales

Items are available for swimmers and their families to order at the beginning of the season. This gear is divided between team suits and other coach-approved equipment, and products for swimmers and their families to show team spirit. A portion of all sales benefits the team. Visit our Gear Shop page.

Lap-a-thon

Our team's annual Lap-a-thon is our largest fundraiser and provides scholarships, team gear, and awards, and keeps our fees at some of the lowest rates in the state. Typically held in November, our Lap-a-thon kicks off the season with a lot of fun! Visit our Lap-a-thon page.
