Saturday, October 31st - Halloween Swim-a-thon
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. The monthly dues that we charge our families are only part of the money required to cover all of the operational costs our team sees each year. All CCST swimmers are required to fundraise a minimum of $50.00. Prizes for top fundraisers!
So this year we will run a USA Swimming Foundation approved fundraising event called a Swim-a-Thon, which brings all of our kids together for a swimming event where they swim as many laps as possible.
Normally 5% of the proceeds raised from a Swim-a-Thon goes back to the USA Swimming Foundation to support youth learn-to- swim programs and to provide financial support to our U.S. National Team athletes and coaches. For 2020 and 2021, USA Swimming is not taking the 5%. They understand that the recent pandemic has threatened the existence of some USA teams and they want to give back their portion.The funds will be used to pay for our annual banquet, team equipment and team travel.
Everyone can get involved at this family friendly event! Our athletes fundraising participation raises money from friends and family which is critical to financially helping out our team. Your support of our Swim-a-Thon is very much appreciated!
