Fundraising, Sponsors & Partners



Why Fundraise?


Fundraising efforts are vital to the future of any sports club and swimming clubs are no different.   Strong fundraising efforts help us to ensure we have excellent coaching, access to excellent facilities and coaching technology. 


Here's what our coaches say about fundraising.....


"Stuff Costs Money!   Fundraising isn’t a new concept and it never ever stops.  Even in the big leagues fundraising happens, they just call it sponsorship.  The reality of sport is, there is no secret formula. There is no one way fits all and there is no cheat code to get to the top. Even the science says the same. You look at physiology and the studies of what makes a great athlete and you’ll see things like huge Vo2 Max or massive lung capacity, but actually having those things doesn’t make a champion. You’ll see that psychology and the ability to overcome obstacles, motivate yourself to train when it hurts of find the all allusive zone is key; but that doesn’t work if the machine can’t support it. That being the case we aim to support talent with opportunity. Giving everyone the opportunity to succeed is what we are about and what fundraising affords.   What an athlete needs, changes, but your money can help run that training camp, help subsidise training expenses, put coaches through courses so they can better harness the physiology and psychology and find the right balance for the individual athlete whether they are at the top or just joining the club. Keeping our athletes at their best isn’t just about what they’re physically capable of. Sometimes it’s about letting off steam so they are mentally ready to face the next session. The athlete is the centre of our world Being able to support their mental health and well-being is a huge part of the club’s responsibility. Every penny and pound makes a difference here and you have the opportunity to give these athletes the best chance at success through your generosity, support and kindness."
