2022 SWIM-A-THON

Fundraiser Event: Monday, May 13th, from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm


Prizes, raffles, games, and music - come and swim for a good cause, stay and play!


HOW DOES IT WORK?

Athletes request donations from sponsors (family and friends), either per lap (one pool length) or lump sum donations from as many donors as possible. Each swimmer will swim as many laps as possible and then collect their sponsors' pledges. Volunteers and coaches will track and tally the total laps swam.

2022 BVST Swim-A-Thon Donation Form 


WHOM DO I ASK FOR PLEDGES?

  • Ask your friends, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, and parents' co-workers who may be interested in sponsoring you – and, of course, Mom & Dad! 
  • Some people like to donate 10 cents, 25 cents, or 50 cents a lap and enjoy seeing how many laps you'll swim. Others may prefer to donate a lump sum amount.


WHY IS THE SWIM-A-THON-IMPORTANT?

  • The swim-a-thon is our BIGGEST FUNDRAISING event and supports the Briar Flyer and Junior Flyer swim programs.
  • Our fundraising efforts this year are critical. 
  • Fundraiser proceeds augment the income of the Briar Village Swim Team. Proceeds fund team operating expenses and activities while keeping registration fees low. 
  • The BVST programs impact our local community by offering children high-quality, low-cost, competition stroke instruction and scheduled, organized meets.
  • The swim team is non-profit and 100% volunteer-run since its establishment in 1972. Please show your support and join us in raising money for our team.

Thank you!

About the Junior Flyers Program

If your child can NOT swim across the pool, they will be in the Junior Flyer program. The program aims to get swimmers comfortable in the water and learn the basic stroke mechanics of crawl/freestyle. It's 4 days a week, Monday through Thursday, for 6 weeks. Swimmers must be 3 years old. The cost is $150.00 per swimmer. No discounts for additional swimmers.

Skill Level: Beginner

Skill Requirement: This program is for beginner swimmers who cannot swim 25 meters or the equivalent of one pool length

Age Requirement: 3 years – 10 years

Program Description: Beginner swimmers will work with Junior Flyer Swim Coaches and helpers. The program aims to get swimmers comfortable in the water and learn the basic stroke mechanics of crawl/freestyle. Swimmers who can swim 25 meters before the first meet will be moved out of the Junior Flyers program to practice and compete in meets as part of the Briar Flyers.

Note: Swimmers who cannot swim 25 meters will stay in the Junior Flyers and continue to work with their coaches. *Swimmers can move up any time throughout the program.
