Team Spirit & Fundraising Events
We have fun events planned for the team this year. We appreciate everyone chipping in to make it a fun-filled swim season for the kids and to help promote team spirit and teamwork.
Swim Team Pep Rally -- Friday, June 11th, 6:00pm - 8:00pm (rescheduled for 6/21 due to weather)
Swim Team Photos--Friday, June 25th, 9 am
Swim-A-Thon -- Saturday, July 10th, 8:00pm - 12:00am (proceeds benefit swim team)
Swim Team Banquet -- Sunday, July 25th, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
The Swim a thon, our only fundraiser event, is Saturday, July 10th, 8:00pm - 12:00am.
The kids really enjoy this event and it will raise some well-needed funds for the team. We are asking that your swimmers collect pledges as per the attached pledge sheet linked below. We use the funds for much needed swim team equipment and supplies, and the team has consistently given back to the Whitehurst Club Resident Association, so your funds will be appreciated by all.
We NEED your help to run the swim-a-thon. It's not labor intensive. Please sign up to help via the Sign Up Genius link for 2021 swim team volunteering/jobs.
The pledges can be on a "per length" basis or as a flat fee. PLEDGES DUE JULY 18 TO Sara Zelechoski at her home. Please leave your form and money in the container on her porch.
There will be snacks and drinks for the participants.
All swimmers, regardless of age, must "raise" $20 in order to participate. ANYONE in the water (including parents of swimmers), but be a paying participant, swimming laps.
All swimmers can use devices, such as fins, kickboards,etc. to help swim a lap or three hundred!
Any community member/ family member is allowed to collect pledges and swim for the team, or to help count laps that night. Same rules apply to non-swim team members.
The pool will be closed to anyone not participating. Siblings and other family members watching, but not swimming laps, may NOT enter the pool.
Think of this as our own little Whitehurst Waves Pool Party. The kids will all have a great time!
