Norwich Swan Sponsored Swim 2019

Once again, we are running our annual sponsored swim over the Easter holidays. This is a great opportunity to raise money for your swimming club. This can also help you pass some of the distance swims for your stage 8, 9 and 10 badges. Please go to the events section of the website to enter.


The details

This year the events will be run in the first week of the Easter holidays at The Hewett School, Cecil Road, NR1 2PL. Squads are separated as listed in the table below.

Date and Time

Friday 12th April 8.00am – 12.00pm

Friday 12th April 1.00pm – 5.00pm


Learn to Swim*,Cygnet, Club Development and Challenge

All other squads

*Learn to Swim Swimmers must be able to swim 25m if they wish to participate.

The Fundraising

The money you collect this year will go towards Norwich Swan Club Funds which are used for essential equipment and special events and to subsidise activities for the swimmers.   You candownload a sponsor form or collect one from Tina.

The options

1. Swim as far as you can by yourself (within the four hours) for as long as you are able.

2. Swim as a team (either in relay formation or at the same time) to complete a bigger distance. All members of teams still need to fill out their own form but after the event make sure you write down the total distance swum by the entire team. Teams can come up with their own team names and you can add that to the form as well.


We need volunteers to count lengths.  Please go to the Events tab on the website and select the correct event and then click on the "job sign up" button and add your name to a time slot.  The slots are 1 hour long. We need plenty of volunteers for this event to run smoothly.

The rest

Forms and money have to be handed to Tina Bedder (in a sealed envelope) by Friday 24th May at the latest to give you time to collect as much as possible!

Alternatively you can donate through Go Fund Me, using the link below.
