Skip to main content Fundraising

We’ve joined forces with Amazon for an easy fundraiser.  At the top of the BKYS team page and on our blog you will see an banner.  If you are planning to purchase from Amazon, all you need to do is click to them from our website and BKYS will receive a percentage rebate of your purchases.  The more that our members purchase by clicking from us, the greater the percentage of rebate.

Your Amazon account information is secure and remains the same, you still get to use your Amazon Prime membership, and you still get any other rewards that you would normally receive from them. 

Click from BKYS, log in as you normally would, and make your purchase.  That’s it.  If you’re a Kindle user, you will need to make your purchases by this method for us to receive credit (you can’t shop from your Kindle – sorry, Jim).

Look for more information soon that lets you know what percentage of rebate specific items earn.  ALL items count toward the total rebate (including gift cards).

It’s an easy way to support the team so shop.  A lot.  And ask your friends and relatives to click through us too so they can help too!

Extra T-Shirts

The Pollock Family has donated about 60 t-shirts sporting the new team logo to our Booster Club. The shirts come in a variety of colors and sizes. Each family will have their chance to pick ONE shirt on Monday or Tuesday at practice. On Wednesday, any shirts remaining will be available to anyone. A donation to the booster club for your shirt is optional. The kids are now receiving their team t-shirts that were made exclusively for kids and coaches. Kast-A-Way has not yet printed our red t-shirts, if you would like to order one I suggest you call today. These shirts are being printed on a light weight t-shirt from Sport Tek.

Coach of the Year

Dear Coach, Hope this email finds you well and enjoying the summer. We are writing today on behalf of the upcoming feature film COACH OF THE YEAR: an independent, kid-friendly sports comedy feature film based on the inspiring true story of a rag tag swim team that tries to win a state championship…without a pool to practice in. Director Dave Stott, who has coached swimming for twenty years, hopes that with this film, we will entertain and inspire kids all over the country to learn to swim. Another goal of this film is to raise awareness about drowning as the leading cause of accidental deaths and to help kids all over the country learn to swim safely. The underdog story has been told before, but not for our sport. This is a movie for swimmers (and would-be swimmers), made by people who know the sport intimately and love it passionately, and we’d love for you to be involved. We wanted to ask you and your team to help spread the word about COACH OF THE YEAR, and get you & you

Is my child ready to swim meets?

We had a coaches discussion on this  - and yes, all of our Elite group swimmers are ready for meets.  Please look at the meet calendar and sign up for the days that you are available.  We will pick events that are appropriate for your swimmer.  We pick events that your child can do well and will build their confidence.  We also believe strongly in placing your child in events that will challenge them.  While we strive for excellence, making a mistake in an event is OK and can be a great learning experience.  Trying and failing is teaches a lot more  about your abilities than not trying at all.
