Perhaps the most famous challenge in swimming is crossing the English Channel, and the youngest girl to even complete the crossing was 12 year old Samantha Druce in 1983. That record will never be broken, as there is now a minimum age of 16 years for channel swimming attempts.
If you are looking for some creative fundraising ideas for your swimming club then look no further:
Charity game day – set up a fun day of events for friends and family of the club. You can provide food, hold races, maybe even run a fastest length competition with prizes for the winners. Charge for tickets to the fun and put the profit towards your club’s goals.
Selling team gear – create designs for hoodies, t-shirts and more featuring your club’s logo and designs. Sell to your team before you place the order to maximise profit.
Raffle lessons – a great way for the top swimmers at your club to help with fundraising. All they have to do is volunteer a few hours of their time, and you can raffle or auction these lessons as a great way to raise funds.
Club calendar – gather some great images from around your club and create a unique calendar to offer for sale. The more creative you are with this, the more interesting your calendar will be, and the more money you can raise.
Store partnership – can a local supplier offer you a small commission on club members spending at their store? If you can send a lot of business their way, then it is in everyone’s interest to work together.
