Swim-A-Thon is a Swimming Canada program that is provided to clubs through their local Provincial Association.  Swim clubs must register and participate through Swimming Canada’s official online Swim-A-Thon system platform only.  The Swim-A-Thon fundraisers will run between January 1 and May 31 2017.  Rules and guidelines for the program are established by Swimming Canada. 

Clubs will receive a grant for 90% of the amount raised; 10% will be split between Swim Alberta, Swimming Canada and fees incurred through on-line transactions.  Each club participating in the program is assessed, through Swim Alberta, a fee from Raising Spirits based on the total competitive membership of the club.

  • 100 plus competitive swimmers:  $399.00
  • 51 – 99 competitive swimmers:  $349.00
  • Up to 50 competitive swimmers:  $300.00

The Raising Spirit Fee is payable to Swim Alberta, as we will be making one lump sum payment for participating clubs to Raising Spirits.  This fee will be invoiced when you register your Club’s Swim-A-Thon site.
