Fundraising

Swimmers will be required to participate in SBST fundraising events and raise the minimum amounts listed below each year.  Families with more than one swimmer will be required to raise the level of the swimmer in the highest class plus $50 for each additional child.  Swimmers that swim 5 months or less during the swim calendar year will be required to raise 50% of the amount listed below.  If a swimmer does not meet the required amount by July 31, they will be responsible for paying the difference.  

           Developmental:   $100
           Age Group:  $250
           Junior/Senior: $350

There are several fundraisers each year where swimmers will have the opportunity to meet their fundraising requirements.  Please see the fundraisers listed below or on the Current Fundraiser tab for details on these programs.  Also, don't forget to sign up your City Market card below as this earns the team additional money.

SWIM FOR SOPRIS
This is our annual fundraiser typically held in October to raise money for the team.

As you know, the Sopris Barracuda Swim Team is a non-profit, sponsor & fee supported organization, training amazing, dynamic, talented competitive swimmers. We are celebrating our 47th year and our philosophy is for every swimmer to be prepared to compete to the maximum of his or her ability, and to have fun doing so. One hundred percent of the funds collected for this event are retained by the team to help finance its swimming program. Each swimmer is will swim as many laps as they can over one continuous two-hour period in the water. Donations are tax deductible.  Each year, prizes areawarded to the top three fundraisers of the event.   Go Swimmers!

We will need lots of parent volunteers for this event.  

TURKEY TROT
In 2012, Team Sopris and the High School Swim Teams joined together and took over the annual GWS Turkey Trot.  Swimmers will have an opportunity to pre-sell registrations as well as volunteer at this fun Thanksgiving day race.  Contact: Steve Vanderhoof

Swim Meet/Travel Trip Fundraisers

The following program(s) have been set aside to help swimmers raise money to attend swim meets and team travel trips.  Any money a swimmer earns with these fundraisers will be set aside in the swimmer's swim meet account and can be used to pay for meet fees for a swim meet or expenses for a team travel trip.  Families may use these fundraisers towards their fundraising requirements if they choose, but will need to let the volunteer coordinator know.  (Fundraising requirements must be met in order to use money towards travel trips.)
