The clock is started. We are excited for this year's BIG team fundraiser and hope to raise a ton of money for our team. As a non-profit organization, the monthly dues that we charge our families are only part of the money required to cover all of the operational costs our team see each year.

So each year we run a USA Swimming-approved fundraising event called a Swim-A-Thon that brings all OCST swimmers together for a fun two hour swimming event where they swim as many laps as possible.

This event, along with our athletes fundraising participation, helps raise money from friends, family and local businesses that is critical to financially helping out our team. This year's goal is big -- OCST hopes to raise $40,000 to help offset the financial impact on the team due to COVID and to offset members' dues in order to keep our membership dues lower for families, pay for some needed upgrades and maintenance for our sister pool at the Elks Lodge and upgrades to swim meet equipment, among other things.

Event Schedule for Saturday, September 25th.

7:00-8:50 AM: Swimmers in Race, Train, Performance and Challenge

9:00-11:00AM: Swimmers in Novice, Explore, Sprint and Fitness

PANCAKE BREAKFAST after each session under the tented picnic tables at the Elks Lodge.

Molalla-OCST will swim at the Molalla Aquatic Center on September 25th from 8:00AM - 10:00AM followed by a pancake breakfast.

The Swim-A-Thon is a mandatory fundraising event. All OCST and Molalla-OCST swimmers in groups Novice through Performance, including Fitness and Challenge are expected to swim in and raise a minimum of $100 for OCST. The Swim-A-Thon is an important component of OCST's annual budget. Swimmers who do not participate and raise a minimum of $100 will have their accounts charged accordingly.
