Go the Mile on June 17th! LBD Swim-A-Rama 2019 Fundraiser

We are putting the SWIM back in our 2019 Swim-A-Rama... Go the Mile!  Sponsor an LBD swimmer to earn their Mile Cap to wear proudly at practice!

Join us on June 17th for our annual Swim-A-Rama event!  Swim-A-Rama is our primary fundraiser for the swim team.  Thanks to donations from friends and families, we have been able to keep our registration costs low and provide support for the team and facility improvements. This year we are raising money to build a snack shed (with a freezer) on the pool deck to 
  make Treat Tuesday ice cold again (did someone say Otter Pops?)  !  
Plan on bringing the whole family out for this year’s Swim-a-Rama. Kids will be trying to earn as much money as they can and swim as many laps as they can. LBD swimmers will come during their designated time (see below) to swim as many laps as they can (Go the Mile: 66 laps). There will be prizes given for all swimmers who swim a mile, the top three fundraising earners, and the boy and girl in each age group to swim the most laps. 

Mandatory Fundraising: As a condition of membership with the Loomis Basin Dolphins Swim Team, as agreed during registration, parents/guardians are responsible for fundraising. There will be an opt-out option of $25 per swimmer per season... but don't opt out... Go the Mile!!!  The Loomis Basin Dolphins (LBD) are a non-profit recreational swim club serving youth swimmers from Loomis and surrounding communities. As a non-profit club, your donation is 100% tax deductible and you will receive a receipt with tax identification information via email when you donate on-line.  
Here’s how to donate… Visit https://www.teamunify.com/team/recssllbd/page/tu-money.  Select “Find Participants” to search for your swimmer(s).  Once your swimmer is found and selected, click “Please Donate”.  You have the option to donate for the individual swimmer OR for the swim team family.  Then simply complete the information to donate!  PLEASE share this link with family and friends via email and social media and personalize your fundraising page so your sponsors know what your goals are!  If they prefer to donate/collect by check, note swimmers name in the memo section and/or pace in envelope and bring to the information desk at practice or bring the night of the event. 
While the kids are swimming, the rest of the family can enjoy:
  • Bubbles

  • A chalk drawing contest (more information to come)
  • Subway sandwiches (fresh boxed dinners for $7 each — 15% of sales goes to LBD! )
