CITY Swim-A-Long

 

Date:    TBD

Time:    TBD

 

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

 

The CITY 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 participate in the best youth sport in the community.  The event is a great way to educate the community about Park City Swimming and the benefits that the team and sport provide.  Also, this is a great event for parents to interact with their swimmer and keep track of their laps/time, as well as socialize with the other parents on the team. 

 

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
  • Pace Clock
  • Training equipment
  • Team travel
  • Activities and Socials
  • Prizes for participants
  • A donation to the Park City Aquatic Center for supporting the swim team
  • Coach’s 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 Serena by Friday, November 30th.  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.
