The rules are super simple!

Here's how it works:
Host a USA Swimming Foundation Swim-a-Thon™ and earn points for dollars raised. Check out our Official Rules to learn how you can earn some fun and very easy bonus points,. Clubs will compete against each other to get the most points.
How do you win?
If your club has the most points in your category, then you're a Gold Medal winner! To keep the contest fair, categories are based on the size of your club. The category winners are called Gold Medal winners because who doesn't want to go for the gold?
What do Gold Medal winners get? Pretty epic prizes! Including an entry into the Grand Prize drawing, a customized Deck Pass Patch for your club or team $200 in Visa gift cards AND a gift certificate to a pizza joint to host a really sweet team party!
And that's not all! One Gold Medal winner will be randomly drawn, and if your team or club is chosen, then you'll receive the Grand Prize - a personal visit in 2016 from a U.S. National Team athlete!
But wait...there's more! As the Grand Prize winner you'll also receive one year of free licensing fees to SwimOffice Team Management™, compliments of TeamUnify!
