WWU 2019 Swim Team

We are a group of approximately 30 athletes who seek to spread awareness and passion for swimming while fostering a friendly and inclusive environment. We compete through U.S. Masters and participate in five masters meets ending with Spring Nationals in Arizona. Today, we are asking for your support of our team in this year’s season.

 

Daily practices are one and a half hours and are run by the captains – students who volunteer their time. Our club offers a range of opportunities for swimmers of all abilities. We offer one on one assistance for new swimmers as well as strategic sets for swimmers wanting to swim their absolute best. Due to this structure, we have swimmers with varying goals while all sharing the passion for swimming. The overarching drive of our club comes from self-motivation, which is why we are so unique. Swimmers are with us for exercise, to improve their stroke and times, as well as having a support group at Western.

 

In order for this club dynamic to work, we run as a U.S. Masters team and do not receive extensive funding from the school. Our club has to pay for pool space, and swimmers then pay out of pocket to compete. Our last swim meet of the season is Spring Nationals in Mesa, AZ. At the moment, after our local fundraisers and bake sales, swimmers will still have to pay around $350 to attend nationals in addition to previous meets and the annual club fee of $160. These donations help lower all these costs and ensure our teams membership and status into the future.

 

Thank you for your support and Go Vikings!

Levels
Choose a giving level

$25

Sprint

The 25 yard sprint is the first event that every new swimmer participates in.

$50

Freestyle

Whether it is a 50, 100, 200, or 500, freestyle is just the right race for everyone to get their feet wet.

$100

Breaststroke

Breaststroke is a highly specialized stroke, differing greatly from the other three. A breaststroker doesn't conform to those around them, but instead they proudly stand apart in all their quirks.

$150

Backstroke

Backstrokers enjoy the simple perks in life, like unlimited air. They are kicking machines and oftentimes gracefully glide over the water .

$200

Fly

Fly is not for the faint of heart. One who swims fly must be able to push through any difficulty. It might be a hard race, but there is no greater satisfaction than knowing you finished it.

$250

Individual Medley

The jack of all trades. This race is for those who can't pick a stroke, so why not do them all? IM swimmers are the wildcards and backbones to every team.
