2014 Swim-a-Thon™ Contest - Make your event an epic one!
The Swim-a-Thon™ season is in high gear and the USA Swimming Foundation is right by your side ready to help you make this year's fundraising event the most fun and successful ever imagined!
We are excited to be bringing back our Swim-a-Thon™ contest for 2014! This contest is designed to create some mind-blowing team spirit and extreme levels of competitive action when your athletes and coaches find out they are competing with other Swim-a-Thon™ events all across the country to win awesome prizes, and a chance at the grand prize - a personal club visit from a 2014 National Team athlete!
The rules are simple!
Host a USA Swimming Foundation Swim-a-Thon™ between December 2013 and November 2014 and you are automatically entered into our 2014 Swim-a-Thon™ Contest! Not interested? No worries. You can always opt out.
Here's how it works: Host a USA Swimming Foundation Swim-a-Thon™ and earn points for dollars raised. Don't forget to check out our Official Rules to learn how you can earn some fun and easy bonus points, and we mean VERY easy. Clubs will compete against each other to get the most points.
How do you win? If your club has the most points in your category, then you're a Gold Medal winner! To keep the contest fair, categories are based on the size of your club. The category winners are called Gold Medal winners because who doesn't want to go for the gold?
What do Gold Medal winners get? Pretty epic prizes! Including an entry into the Grand Prize drawing, a customized Deck Pass Patch for your club or team, a feature article in USA Swimming's Splash magazine, $200 in Visa gift cards AND a gift certificate to a pizza joint to host a really sweet team party!
And that's not all! One Gold Medal winner will be randomly drawn, and if your team or club is chosen, then you'll receive the Grand Prize - a personal visit from a National Team athlete! But wait...there's more! As the Grand Prize winner you'll also receive one free year of licensing fees to SwimOffice Team Management™, compliments of TeamUnify!

Gold Medal winners will be announced February 11, 2015 and the Grand Prize Winner will be drawn on February 18, 2015.
