4.1 Swimathon
4.2 Other Fundraising

​​​​​​​Nanaimo Riptide Swim Team is a registered non-profit organization.  Our fees are subsidized by BC Gaming funds as well as fundraising activities.  Each swimmer in the Los Angeles-1984 level and above will be responsible to fundraise $150 per season.  A number of activities throughout the season will be available to meet this commitment.  At registration a $150 cheque is required for each swimmer to cover their fundraising commitment.  You may choose to do no fundraising and simply allow the cheque to be cashed on the preset date.  Or you may choose to utilize one or more of the fundraising options below to contribute towards your fundraising commitment.  If the amount you raise meets or exceeds your commitment your fundraising commitment cheque will be returned.

4.1 Swim-a-thon

This is an annual nationwide Swim Canada fundraiser.  Participation in the swim-a-thon is mandatory for all swimmers in the competitive level and whether or not they actively gather pledges.  Each participant is encouraged to gather pledges to support the club.  There are a number of incentives in the form of prizes for swimmers raising the most money or having the most sponsors.  We receive the largest portion of our fundraising revenue from this one event.  Further information on the swim-a-thon is available from the Fundraising Co-ordinator.

4.2 Other Fundraising

Additional fundraising programs will be determined by the Board of Directors.
