The only Fundraiser the Piranhas ask their membership to participate in is the biennial Swim Challenge. The Swim Challenge is a large effort swim-a-thon in which all Piranha families are required to fully participate. The minimum required level of financial participation will be determined by the PAC during the annual budgeting process. Any requests for variation on your payment must be approved by the Head Coach before registration. Any swimmer in arrears of fundraising requirements will not be permitted to practice until account is settled.
Money raised from fundraisers fund guest speakers such as last year’s visit from Olympic Gold medalists Josh Davis and Maya DiRado, team items such as tents for summer meets, Team banners, much needed computer software for the coaching staff and timing equipment, and also allows the coaches to attend travel meets and clinics.
2017 Swim Challenge Commitment
As stated in your registration information you were given at the beginning of the 2017 swimming year, the commitment for each family is detailed in the packet cover letter. Any family who fails to raise the minimum amount will have the amount deducted from their meet fee account.
THE 2017-18 SWIM CHALLENGE WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!
