CST Sponsorship Program

Both individuals and businesses have the opportunity to partner with CST as a sponsor.  Please click on the "Documents" tab to locate the Sponsorship Program form.

CST Annual Fundraising Contract

By registering your swimmer with our program, each family agrees and accepts CST's fundraising commitment.  This requirement is necessary to the financial well-being of the team.

Short Course fundraising obligation is $300, Long Course is $200, for an annual total of $500.  Please see the chart below for how this is billed and pro-rated.  As funds are raised, credits will be applied to individual accounts resulting in a reduction of the following month's fundraiser charge.  You may contact our treasurer, ([email protected]), at any point to know what your balance is.

We work to provide ample opportunities to fundraise throughout the year in order to help families meet the fundraising commitment.  Some examples are the Swim-A-Thon, car washes, pie sales, bottle drop donations and our sponsorship program.  Due to the pandemic we have been limited in what we are able to do as a team but continue to look for ways for families to help support CST.

*Fundraising obligations for non-competitive squads (11-14 Entry/part time, Precompetitive and Masters) are half the rate of competitive squads. Short Course fundraising obligation is $150, Long Course is $100, for an annual total of $250.

How can I get involved?...

Home Swim Meets: There are many positions at a home swim meet including concession stand, hospitality room, set up, clean up, head timer, and timing slip runner and more. Job sign ups become available through the team website once the meet in announced.

FUNdraising:  Each family on the club is responsible for their own fundraising commitment per season but the fundraising committee is the group of parents who will brainstorm, plan, and help facilitate the events that help the swimmers and families raise the funds needed for the team. You can reach out to our fundraiser lead at [email protected] to see how yuo can help.

Swim Meet Officials:  Swim meets can't happen without officials.  Officials are needed at home swim meets as well as travel meets.  At away meets, CST must  provide a certain number of officials based on the number of swimmers we have attending the meet.  The CST officials group is a great volunteer group and is a huge service to our team.  Contact our officials coordinator if you are interested in learning how to become an official, [email protected]

Committee Member:  The team is always looking for individuals to help organize and plan team social events such as team outings, team gatherings and end of season celebrations.   We are looking for at least one parent per age group to work on these events throughout the year. We aim to provide each age group of swimmer's a special fun event every 3-4 months throughout the year. Volunteers would work with the team's board members and coaching staff as needed to make great memories for all the swimmer's on the team.   

Board of Directors:  Our board positions include Board President, Secretary, Treasurer and at large members.  The Board meets at least once a month to answer questions and give out information at our parent meetings.  Behind the scenes, the members formulate the bylaws and budget while ensuring that all policies are current and provide structure to the team. All board membes are a huge support to the team and work hard to provide a positive and welcoming atmosphere for all families interested in joining the team. For more information regarding our board of directors you can reach out to our board president.
