SWIN-A-THON 2022

SWIN-A-THON 2022
April 6, 2022
We are looking forward to our  Annual Swim-A-Thon and Team Fundraiser on
Sunday, April 24, 6AM-10AM
Just like every marathon, sign up is early! Please make sure the kids are in bed early (you too!)
If you are absolutely unable to come on Sunday, the make-up day will be
Monday April 23, 2018 from 3pm-5pm
You must come with someone to count your laps.

 

START TIMES
Group 1 and 2 will arrive at 6:00 AM

swim from 6:30to 8:00 AM
Please arrive no later than 7:45 AM
Group 3 and 4 will swim from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM

 

IMPORTANT INFO
1.  Please swim during your allotted time in order to make this day run smoothly.  You need to come EARLY to get checked in – A MUST!!

We will have almost 120 swimmers that need to get in the pool to swim and we need to keep on schedule so that everyone may have an opportunity to meet their goals.
2.  Lap Counters.  We will need  vaccinated parents/cousins/grandparents/aunts/uncles/etc to volunteer on deck to help count laps.  We need at least 6 volunteers per lane! (3 at the top / 3 at the bottom)  That is a minimum of 36 parents on deck.  Please come ready to step up and be on deck so we can move the swim-a-thon along.  This is a Must!  We will continue to make an extraordinary effort to accurately record how far our team can swim.  It is really impossible for swimmers to push themselves and count laps at the same time.  This is a great opportunity to show your team spirit, give back, and hang out on deck!  Plus it is a lot of fun!
3. Wear a crazy cap!  Please do NOT wear a SEBS cap because the lap counters are unable to tell you apart.  Please wear a different and fun swim cap so that the timers may track you easily.  You can purchase fun caps from www.swimoutlet.com
and other establishments.  You will also have your own identifying number written on your arm but every little bit of difference will assist the lane counters!

 

SWIM-A-THON
We remind swimmers that this is a swim-a-thon.  That is, you swim until you drop! Push yourself!  See how far you can go without stopping!
This means:
NO stopping to go to the bathroom (Take care of that before you get to the pool!)
NO stopping to chat with friends
NO stopping to go get a snack (fuel up before you begin your record setting attempt!)
This is your challenge and you can do it!  Our overall team goal is not mileage per se, but to see how many of you meet the stated goals below.  For example, how many of our Novices were able to swim 2000 yards and so forth?  Can we do it?  Novices?  Bantams? Juniors? Seniors?  Who is going to rock this challenge?  All of you?  YES YOU CAN!

YOU ARE THE ST. SEBASTIAN CYO CHAMPIONS!
One Team!  One Dream!  Go For It!

GOALS
Novice           2000 yards      (80 laps)
Bantam         3000 yards      (120 laps)
Junior            4000 yards       (160 laps)
Senior            5000 yards      (200 laps)

CONTRIBUTION
This is our team’s main fundraiser.  Each swimmer must raise a minimum of $150 for the team. (this has been raised due to the cost of everything going up)  Of course, you are always welcome to donate more!  We love our kids.  We love our team.  We want them to have all the good things that come with being part of our GREAT SWIM TEAM COMMUNITY.  The money helps us do that!
ALL CHECKS ARE DUE ON or Before
April 24, 2022!
Checks are payable to: St. Sebastian CYO Fund

You may ask your grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, and whomever you wish to support you in donating to this very fun challenge.  Please remember that this is a fundraising opportunity and without it we will be unable to provide for the extras that we feel are important to the Boys and Girls Swim Team.  The Swim-A-Thon donations will provide the swimmers free-of-charge items such as Boys and Girls Championship Jackets, Boys and Girls Graduating Digs, annual trip to Splish Splash, and pay for the pool rental.
A Donation letter is attached.
Some of you work in companies that will match donations or own companies that need a tax deduction.  Now is that time to do that!

LET’S ROCK THIS CHALLENGE TOGETHER IN THE POOL and WITH OUR DONATION.
LET’S GO SEBS!
