Competitive Swimming. Now this is a sport that you can grow old with. Like golf and cycling, swimming is a sport that you can do for the rest of your life.
Unlike “Impact” sports like running, football and tennis (which can wear out your knees, ankles and elbows) swimming puts little pressure on your joints and muscles. In fact, after 50 laps in your 25-meter pool, you are going to be stretched out and relaxed, ready for your work week. Try running 5 miles on pavement and all that most of are ready for is a visit to our Orthopedic Specialist.
I can’t find any hard statistics on this, but I think that the average age of most recreational swim teams is in the 30’s. My wife’s swim team has a few teens on it, and few swimmers in their 20’s. But the core of the swim team is a bunch of people in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. They even have two swimmers in their 70’s! It’s a sport that you never outgrow.
Like most other team sports, swimming teams need money to operate. They need to buy equipment (timing clocks, pool land dividers). They need to rent the pool (usually) in order to keep the little kids out during practice and meets. They need to buy swim jackets and team logo’d swim caps, etc.
Swim Teams might not be as expensive as youth football or baseball, but money does need to be raised.
Of course, I’m going to offer up custom car magnets as an excellent way to increase your fundraising potential. I’ll bet there isn’t one member of your team that wouldn’t pay $10 for a custom car magnet with your team’s logo on it. They would put that on their car in 20 seconds.
Our amazing team of designers will work with you to create the perfect fundraising car magnet for your swim team. We will use your team colors, your team logo or mascot and your team name to make a magnet that your team will be proud of.
