North Bay Aquatics Angel Fund 2019

Hello NBA Masters Swimmers;

A quick note for us all to remember –swimmers and coaches; supporters and parents. NBA is ONE TEAM with several training groups that reflect the many and varied interest levels of our entire team. Each of us benefits directly from 2 main focal points: 
1. our level of interest 
2. our level of contribution

Our interest level changes as our life changes. NBA is “cradle to grave” so we are always here for you.

Contribution comes in many forms, yes financial, but also in terms of participation in workouts, encouraging others especially when you feel low yourself and even a simple cup of coffee to share friendship. Case in point; many of you have said “Thanks Coach” after a workout. That lifts me. Those are simple words but they have a positive effect.


 
The Swim Angel Fund is for 2 purposes:
1. travel assistance to Regional and National meets for those who have EARNED the trip and need some help
2. for SCHOLARSHIP awards for monthly training dues for those in need

This year we travel to Seattle, Clovis, San Diego, Phoenix, Orlando and Omaha (plus perhaps a couple of others depending upon the racing schedule). These meets are the “carrot” helping swimmers get up 3xweekly for Strength & Conditioning 5:50-7AM plus 6 weekly swims (we take Friday off but do train on Saturday and Sunday). 

Our monthly training dues are $415. 


Our goal this season is to raise $20,000 and have at least 100 Masters swimmers participate. As an idea; $200-500 buys an airplane ticket, $100 is a room for the night, $40 is dinner. Every dollar does help and adds to the collective ability of the high level swimmer who is dedicated to push their boundaries.



Travel to Regional and National meets puts these swimmers on the colleges’ radar. Your contributions make trips and training possible for all who earn/need help.

We all gratefully appreciate your support!
