Fundraising

Our Goal for the 2016-2017 season is $25,000

We need to fundraise each season to keep our Club fees as affordable as possible for Bow Valley families and to keep our Club viable.

We ask that each family participate in the fundraising programs outlined below:

Grocery Cards – this is the easiest way to participate. Orders can be made for Save-on-Foods gift cards each month. The grocery cards can be redeemed dollar for dollar with a net benefit to the club and no net cost to the purchaser. The profit from the cards ranges from 8-10% depending on the sales achieved each month.

Swim-a-thon – Swim-A-Thon is the major fundraising event in which all clubs in Canada participate.  It promotes and finances amateur competitive swimming.  The purpose of Swim-A-Thon is to raise money for our club in a marathon swim through obtaining pledges for so much per length swum, or a pre-determined amount. Every Riptides swimmer participates.

Swim Meets – this is another way to raise funds for our Club. Funds are raised through meet entry fees and heat sheet sales.  For 2016-2017, the Club will be hosting 3 meets. Volunteering is mandatory for all families with swimmers participating.

Casino – November 14 & 15, 2016. Proceeds will be received in March 2017. One parent volunteer shift per swimmer registered is required.

Raffle – TBD. Check out the website for our last raffle at BigSplashRaffle.info
