LAP-A-THON is out of quarantine just in time to support your swimmers!
Now that we can be on deck, LAP-A-THON is HERE!
Next Friday, June 18, your favorite Marlin/s will be swimming as many laps as possible in one hour during their regular practice time. ALL SWIMMERS are encouraged to participate.
This is a FUNdraiser and FRIENDraiser! We want to thank our swimmers for being part of the Marlins family with a fun-filled morning. Besides the challenge to swim as many laps as possible during their regular practice time, they'll be enjoying great food and cheering on teammates as they push towards swimming their goals!
Our amazing team is 100% a non-profit program. The funds raised help keep registration fees down, swim in our incredible pool, have equipment for training, tents for the hot Summer meets, have fun activities, run fantastic swim meets, have amazing coaches, a great banquet facility, etc.
Let's challenge ourselves to raise more money than any past lap-a-thon!
Swimmer participation in the LAP-A-THON and Parent volunteers are needed to make this epic event a success!
WHAT IS OUR GOAL?
Besides making this the most fun day of practice in the season, our goal is $6000.We have 240 swimmers. The goal is easily reached if each swimmer raises $25. But let’s challenge ourselves and blow our goal OUT OF THE WATER!

HOW DO I GET SPONSORS?
This is probably easier than you think – most people are happy to help! The key is to ask. The donations can be made online or the good old-fashioned way by cash or check made out to Brushy Creek Marlins.
SHARE WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY. When donating online, remember to mention which swimmer you are donating on behalf of so they get the credit which leads to prizes and rewards.
There will be fun prizes awarded to the swimmers based on the number of laps, pledges, and donations raised.
