MORE INFORMATION:

Start getting your addresses ready! A great tip is to pre-print mailing labels for potential donors and return mailing labels (your address). Pool reps are now distributing the donation letters and envelopes,.

The prizes and levels from USA Swimming will remain the same. The 2012 KING Boosters prize list is coming soon. NOTE: If you are a family team, you will share your prize with other family team members.

Last year KING raised over $57,000 helping to fund programs such as financial aid, relays at meets, team travel, developmental/novice group mini meets, and more. Our goal is 100% participation by all families during the 2012 KING Swim-A-Thon. If we meet that goal and each family raises $200, we will easily surpass our team record and achieve the goals established by the KING Boosters Board for the 2011-12 swim season! It is not hard and does not take much time or effort. All we ask of you is to try and make an effort to help fundraise through Swim-A-Thon. You will be amazed at how many people WILL give even in these economic conditions. All you have to do is just ask using the tools we provide. Remember, these goals benefit ALL swimmers.
