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.

We are kicking off our 2018-19 Swim Angel Fund this coming Tuesday (Gifting Tuesday) November 27th at all 3 workouts – 5:45 – RDWD and COM 8:30 & 9:45. There will be coffee and treats at all workouts. 

We will be taking pledges and giving away swag…got some very cool items this year!
 
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, Austin, Clovis, San Diego, Phoenix and Irvine (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). Last year you supported 7 different athletes who needed assistance on 18 travel trips.

Our monthly training dues are $375. Last year you supported 8 athletes who needed assistance on a monthly basis.

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.

We have 7 seniors this year and all are going to swim in college. While not all of them have made final decisions, thus far we know the following schools are being considered: UC Davis, Harvard, UC Santa Barbara, MIT, Boston College, NYU, UNR (Univ of Nev-Reno). 

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!
