We are excited to report fundraising participation has officially returned to pre-pandemic levels, with total fundraising approaching $1M! The 2022-2023 season saw over 3,500 swimmers, from 115 participating clubs, collect more than 15,700 donations to support swimming in their community. The number of participating clubs more than doubled from last season, which lead to $897,000.00 raised; an 18% increase in total fundraising from 2021-2022.

This year marked the first fundraising season under Swimming Canada’s owned donation platform. Builidng off the success of the inaugural season, Swimming Canada will be implementing a number of enhacements to the fundraising platform for 2023-2024, including:

  • Personalized thank-you messages
  • Date filtering based on donations, along with the ability to download reports as CSV
  • Donation tracking in “My Account” area
  • Fundraising end date
  • Club goal and amount raised visible on fundraising pages
  • Additional themes for fundraising pages

This year’s Top Individual Fundraiser ‘Age Group’ winner, raising a grand total of $5,100 is Jack Loewen of Crest Swimming (CREST). For their efforts, Jack’s prize includes a $3,500 travel credit to take their family on a trip anywhere they choose. The Top Individual Fundraiser ‘Age Group’ runner-up, raising a total of $3,122, is Vivian Zorko of the Toronto Swim Club (TSC). Vivian wins a $1,000 travel credit. For a second year in a row, join us in congratulating Cathy Harper from the Alberta Marlin Aquatic Masters (AMAM) as winner of the Top Individual Fundraiser ‘Masters’ category. Surpassing their total fundraising efforts from last season, and raising a total of $5,436, Cathy has won 150,000 Marriott Bonvoy points!

Also for a second year in a row, the Top Fundraising Club ‘Overall’, raising a grand total of $71,988, is the Toronto Swim Club (TSC) in Ontario. The Top Fundraising Club ‘Per Registered Swimmer’ (PRS) is Crest Swimming (CREST) in Ontario. Crest Swimming raised $22,856 with 67 registered swimmers – an average of $341.13 per swimmer. Both clubs will receive a memorable visit from a member of our National Team! Speedo Grand Prize winners along with All Tides Bonus Prize winners will be contacted individually. Once all winners have been contacted, a full list will be posted on the Swim-a-Thon website in October.

Individuals are invited to sign up for free by visiting, and following the three easy steps to begin their fundraising efforts. As a reminder again this season, there is no longer an “umbrella” structure on the new donation platform – each new ‘personal’ page that is created is bound to a province and a club, so the funds will be attributed to your club when payouts occur, but you don’t need to create a “club page” for your swimmers to start their fundraising.  Clubs can determine their overall fundraising by clicking the Fundraising Statistics section found in the footer of the website on any page.

Club participation in Swim-a-Thon program:

Swim-a-Thon is a registered trademark of Swimming Canada. In order to host a Swim-a-Thon, swim clubs and their swimmers must be registered members of Swimming Canada and their affiliated Provincial Section and comply with all Swimming Canada Rules and Procedures governing Swim-a-Thon. Swim clubs must register and participate through Swimming Canada’s official online Swim-a-Thon system platform only. Funds raised will not be released to a swim club if it is not registered and in good standing with their respective Provincial section.

Club grants:

Clubs will continue to receive a grant for 90% of the gross amount raised through Swim-a-Thon. These grants are only to be used for club operations as outlined in the affidavit that must be signed by the club upon registration for Swim-a-Thon, in order to receive their grant. Of the 10% retained by Swimming Canada, the Provincial Section is given a 4% grant which Provincial Sections use to support Swim-a-Thon; 3-4% is for processing fees, updates to the Swim-a-Thon online system, and prizing; and the balance of 1-2% goes towards National swimming programs.

For-profit clubs:

For-profit clubs as identified by their Provincial section may not participate in Swim-a-Thon, nor can their affiliated parent booster clubs.

We are looking forward to another successful fundraising season.
