Welcome to the Sailfish Swim Club Swimathon!  Inviting all ISM Community (Parents, Teachers, and Students) It is a fun activity for everybody.  It gives the kids and parents a chance to set goals, and strive to exceed those goals.  Goal distance will be set based on squad level and development. Our objective for Swimathon is twofold:

  1. Ensure that the swimmers have a positive experience and can demonstrate their increased ability in the sport.
  2. Help the swim club raise funds for the Child Hope charity, as well as for equipment for the club and for our end of year awards.

We hope that each swimmer will participate in the Swimathon to the best of their ability. Thank you very much for your participation!

Schedule

  • Parent Volunteers are required to assist with registration; at least 3 parents are needed during the 15 minute registration period.  Please go here to register your help. http://sailfish.ism-online.org/sign-up-forms/swimathon-parent-volunteer/ ‎

Pledge forms are attached so swimmers can start collecting pledges.  On the day of the Swimathon, swimmers are asked to bring along a plate of food for share after they have finished their swim, they will have earned it.  Please arrive early to allow time to register and prepare for the swim.  It is a good idea to have a large water bottle on pool deck to sip on during the swim.  Once the Swimathon is complete, you will need to gather your pledges and pay to the school cashier into the Sailfish Account by Monday 3rd December.

 

Coming up on November 10th is our Annual Swimathon.

This event to anybody in the School Community, including all students, parents, teachers and staff. Please come along.

Swimathon Questions

Hi folks, questions regarding Swimathon.

  1. No sign up form to be done, just come on the day.
  2. Yes you brother or sister can swim, just make sure they swim when their school swims, Elementary School with Elementary School.
  3. Yes please bring a plate of food to share. I have been suggesting to kids that they make the food themselves. Time they learnt how to make a traditional dish from their country.
  4. Yes you do need to have an adult count your laps for you. Most swimmers lose track of how many laps they have done by about 300 meters. Most of you will be swimming between 2 and 8 kilometers, and you will certainly have lost track by then.
  5. Funds going to Child Hope pay for the schooling of 3 street kids, the rest goes towards purchasing equipment/awards for the Sailfish Club.

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Rules

1. Swimmers may start collecting pledges as soon as they receive the pledge sheets. Reminder:  Pledge sheets need to be turned in on Swimathon day. Pledges may be made by anyone.
2. Each sponsor making a pledge should write their own name, pledge per lap, and maximum pledge or set amount pledge.  Swimmers may collect the pledge in advance but must keep pledges until all are collected.
3. On the day of the Swimathon, each swimmer MUST have an adult lap counter/ supervisor, to keep track of the number of laps completed.  Swimmers will not be able to swim if they don’t have an adult supervisor.  Each group will swim during a specified period in our pool.  Each lap is 25 meters.
4. During the Swimathon, swimmers are allowed to stop as needed for toilet and water breaks.  If a swimmer needs to stop they simply move to a corner of their lane or get out of the pool so that other swimmers may continue unimpeded.  Older swimmers are encouraged to stop as little as possible.  Do note that swimming aids of any form are not allowed.
5. Upon completion of the Swimathon, students will get their lap count approved.  A volunteer will record each student’s lap total on their pledge sheet and return it. Students may then collect outstanding pledges.  Please pay the pledges to the school cashier into the Sailfish Account as well as return the pledge sheets to the ISM Sailfish Swim Club by Friday 10th December.

RAIN DOES NOT CAUSE SICKNESS

I had a swimmer remark to me at training this week that we should not swim in the rain because rain makes you sick.

This is incorrect, rain does not make you sick, often sickness occurs in the winter or during the wet season, which happens to coincides with the Flue Season.  A phenomenon that occurs world wide, when the seasons strain of influence is passed from person to person,  rain does not spread sickness.

During the wet season the incidence of mosquito bites increases because mosquitoes lay their eggs in still water. Rain causes puddles, mosquitoes lay eggs and the number of mosquitoes increase.  Again rain does not spread disease, mosquitoes do.

We will train in the rain, e will not swim if there is lightening.

Rain does not make you sick, yet lightening can kill you.

Swimathon Results

A fantastic effort by all swimmers.  You swam a total of 10,513 laps or 262,825meters, or 262 Kilometers

Thanks parents for your support.  Special thanks to Meiling Yoon who organised the event.
