Can you help us make a difference to 100 kids and the future of their Swimming Club?
The pandemic has had a huge impact on everyone and has heavily impacted our revenue, but our kids are the unsung heroes who have missed out on so much time whether that be in education, socialising or gaining new friends as well as taking part in sports. What we need now is support to help us to continue helping our swimmers to achieve their full potential on our return to the pool.
OUR STORY AND WHAT WE NEED TO REBUILD
City of Wakefield Swimming Club is seeking funds to rebuild not only into the club we were before the pandemic but to grow beyond that to new heights and we need your help to raise additional funds to support this. During the different periods of lockdown we made the decision to suspend our training fees. With this and the inability to host galas our reserves have significantly reduced and therefore, we would like to raise £10,000 as part of this crowdfunding campaign to provide for our return to pool activities, offer places for more children who need opportunity, offer concessionary places to those perhaps hit financially by Covid 19, support our current members and widen the scope of our offer to provide for those with special needs.
BUILD AND SECURE OUR FUTURE
We are lucky to have enthusiastic kids who love and support their club and the younger generation, who volunteer and coach in the club in their own time. We want to invest more in our older teams to develop their coaching skills too by offering them a development plan which gains them coaching qualifications and supports them in their education and secures our coaches of the future who lead by example and mentor our younger swimmers.
Lead by Example
We want to encourage more kids to be like our Club Captains Harrison and Briony.
Working hard to gain as much funding as possible
We will also be applying for extra funding through Sport England which means if our application is successful we could receive up to 50% of our target, but we need everyone's help us to get there.
