PCS Swim-A-Long

 

Date:    November 13, 2021

Time:    8:00 am- 12:00 pm

 

The Park City Swimming Swim-A-Long is our annual team fundraiser to help earn money for the various needs of the team.  All PCS swimmers should participate.   

 

The PCS Swim-A-Long is a great opportunity for the swimmers to help benefit the team, as well as themselves.  Swimmers get to have a great workout, build team camaraderie, and challenge each other.  The event is a great way to educate the community about Park City Swimming and the benefits that the team and our sport provide.  Just as important, this is a great event for parents to interact with their swimmer, keep track of their laps/time, and socialize with the other parents on the team.  Swimmers can also count for other swimmers in different sessions.  What a great way to bond with a motivate a teammate.  Come be a part of our Swim-a-long to have fun and help your team!

 

We have a goal for over 75 PCS swimmers to swim in the event, swim over 200 miles and raise over $20,000!  We would love to have each swimmer of PCS raise at least $125.  

 

THE FUN STUFF:

 

There will be music, probably some dancing because of the music, breakfast foods, and lunch served at the end. 

 

PRIZES, PRIZES, PRIZES…

 

There will be prizes for the swimmers in each group and age group based on number of laps swum. We will also have door prizes announced at the end of each session.

How to do the FUNdraiser

Swimmers should petition family, friends, neighbors and businesses for donations.  Parents can help their swimmer by being supportive and advising them on whom to contact.  The money earned will go towards:

 

  • A donation to a club swim team in need.
  • Swim Clinic
  • Training equipment
  • Team travel
  • Activities and Socials
  • Prizes for participants
  • A donation to the Park City Aquatic Center for supporting the swim team
  • Coach education and clinics

 

We will be using our TeamUnify Platform to help us in our fundraising efforts.  When you log into your account, you will see a big pop-up that will take you to the fundraising portion of the website.  Also, an email will be sent out with instructions on how to set up your account. 

 

If you want to do your fundraising without the aid of the website, you can go to the Swim-A-Long tab on the team website and get the forms there.  Money raised for the Swim-A-Long should be turned in to Coach Christy by Friday, November 26th.  Swimmers are encouraged to turn in their earnings a few times so that they don’t risk losing the money or leaving it sitting around someplace. 

 

You must fundraise to participate in the Swim-a-long event.  There will be a fundraising fee charged at the door for any swimmer who wants to participate and did not fundraise.
