Midweek Reminder – SWAG & Sponsorships

A quick mid week reminder to order your SWAG – those sweatpants and socks seem to be the must have items this year! They will keep you toasty warm on the cold mornings and are great for lounging around on Saturday’s after practice! Recall the order closes on Sunday and will NOT reopen. These items make great gifts!  SWAG Gear Order

Sponsorships are starting to come in – thank you! Please consider donating to the team – it is a great way to support East Swim you may also talk to area businesses as they love to support East!

Breakfast Sign Ups  we need a tad bit of help here – Wednesday and Saturday mornings. If Varsity/Varsity Invited families would like to help with Wednesdays that would be super helpful and if JV and Varsity/Varsity Invited would select a few Saturdaysl.  Wednesday is a smaller group of about 15 kids and can be quick grab and go type of items as the kids need to head off to school. Saturday’s plan for a larger group of 35 kids team up with another family to help share the fun!  Team Breakfast Sign Up
Thank you to Coleen, Bonnie and Maritza for putting together an awesome Popcorn Booth at the Homecoming Carnival! Our booth was definitely the best “dressed” and the kids loved the photo booth. Thank you to all the swimmers who came to help support the team and work with starving bellies – next year we will have dinner ready for you while you volunteer!

SWAG store is open and we are accepting Sponsorships

As promised the link to swag gear and information about the sponsorship Fundraiser!

First Sponsorship Fundraising!
Our fundraising goal is $7500.00 (see fundraising tab for breakdown on costs)
One manner to look at your donation is to break it down to a weekly basis – a donation of $200 covers 5 months of swimming and amounts to about $10 per week.
Donations are tax deductible provided you send the money to SLEF with a note it is for East Swim Team. Thank you in an advance for your donation!

Sponsorship Form

BACK again! Sponsorships are back due to the huge success from last year’s supporters! Thank you to all who donated! Let’s aim high this year! These are monetary donations from family, friends and local businesses that are recognized by having their name or logo displayed on various media avenues. We will be placing sponsorship donors in our team directory, on our banner at the pool, and on our blog. Depending on level of sponsorship depends on location(s) and size of name/logo displayed. Deadline is October 19th to allow time for banner creation for our first home meet on November 13th. See attached sheet for details. Local businesses love to support East and many friends and family have businesses that like to donate to help fund our team plus receive a little free advertising!

The link to order fun gear for swimmers, friends and family is below. The store closes on Sunday, October 14th at 8pm and will NOT reopen.  Please think about holiday gifts and birthdays that may occur in the upcoming months. Many of the kids love the sweatpants, hat, water bottle and stickers. Families typically enjoy having the tee (the short sleeve one is available in youth sizes), sweatshirt, stickers, and stadium chairs. FYI – Hydroflask has discontinued their red water bottle – so these are actually the last time we will have red water bottles – order today so you don’t miss out! You may order more than once – but after Sunday the 14th the store will close and orders will not be able to be added and we will not be reopening the store until next season:)
