WHAT IS SWIM-A-THONTM?

Swim-a-ThonTM is a fun and easy way to raise money for your team while supporting the USA Swimming Foundation! It’s a simple, in-pool fundraiser where participants earn money by swimming lengths of the pool.

Swimmers ask family members, friends, neighbors, or businesses to pledge a certain amount of money per length, or make a flat donation in support of the team. Athletes participating in your Swim-a-Thon fundraiser can earn participation and incentive awards from the USA Swimming Foundation, including bag tags, sunglasses, water bottles, t-shirts, and/or an inflatable couch. Plus, qualified teams are automatically entered into an annual, nationwide Swim-a-Thon contest where you'll have the opportunity to win valuable prize packages, and, the ultimate prize, a visit from a National Team athlete!

HOW DOES SWIM-A-THON HELP THE USA SWIMMING FOUNDATION?

Since 2012, more than $1.4 million has been contributed in support of the USA Swimming Foundation's mission to save lives and build champions from teams hosting a USA Swimming Foundation Swim-a-Thon. Teams sign a contract to contribute 5% (or more) of the gross proceeds from their event to the Foundation. Each year many teams choose to contribute more than 5%, with some teams making the USA Swimming Foundation their charity of choice by donating 100% of their proceeds back to the USA Swimming Foundation!

WHAT DOES THE USA SWIMMING FOUNDATION DO WITH THIS MONEY?

  • Provide Swim-a-Thon teams with prizes, including bag tags, sunglasses, water bottles, t-shirts, and an inflatable couch!
  • Organize and fund the annual Swim-a-Thon contest, which all teams who have hosted a Swim-a-Thon are automatically entered to win.
  • Provide $120,000 in funds to help fund the USA Swimming’s National Age Group Coaches Summit, the Women’s Leadership Conference series, and eight Regional Coaches Clinics, in 2017.
  • Award grant funding money to our Make a Splash Local Partners to bring the lifesaving gift of free or low-cost swim lessons to children across the country.
  • Support our National team athletes and coaches, allowing them to train full-time as they fight to keep USA Swimming the #1 in the world.
  • And so much more!
