Swim-4-SCAT

Swim-4-SCAT is our main fundraiser for the year. Swim-4-SCAT is spread over two days, where swimmers will swim for an hour straight seeing how many lengths they are able to accomplish! It is a fantastic event that the swimmers, coaches and parents alike look forward to. We try and make the hour as entertaining as possible, with pump up music, cheering parents and enthusiastic coaches. There will be a parent situated at the end of each lane counting the lengths for each swimmer in the lane to make sure we receive an accurate number! Coaches encourage each swimmer to make a number of lengths goal, and spread the word about what they are involved in with friends and family. Each swimmer will be asked to raise a minimum of $50 ($100 for families of 3 or more), which will in return go back into the team. It is your choice if you just want to send in a cheque for the minimum but we encourage swimmers to go out and fundraise to let people know what they do.

This years event will be held in March 2018. Details to follow.

Team Picture Day

The team picture date will be sent out to all families, usually in May of the swim season but also keep an eye on our SCAT calendar.

Santa Claus Parade

Yearly SCAT participates in the Stoney Creek Santa Claus Parade! SCAT will be interacting with our community and handing out candy canes! It is a wonderful way for our swimmers to show their team spirit, bond together and enjoy the holiday season. Please sign up on the team board at Brewster Pool. We ask that each swimmer bring two boxes of small candy canes or candy to hand out on the day of the parade. 

It has been a tradition to walk in the Stoney Creek Santa Claus Parade.  We are very excited to be part of this tradition once again in 2017.  We encourage all swimmers to participate.  The athletes have so much fun together! The parade will take place on Saturday December 2nd at 2:00 pm.  The parade is 1.5 miles and runs 1.5-2 hours.

We ask that swimmers be at Cardinal Newman Catholic Secondary School, 127 Grays Rd. Stoney Creek by 1:00 pm.  Parents are invited to walk with your swimmer.  If you are unavailable to walk, there will be supervision there for your swimmer.  Swimmers are asked to be dressed wearing our team colours; blue and red and be decorated in Holiday theme. (wear a Santa’s hat).  Swimmers will also be giving out candies to the crowd.

Hope to see you all there!

Christmas Party

To celebrate the holiday season, we hold a Christmas Party for the team. It is a great opportunity for the swimmers to interact outside the pool and bond as a team.

Information for this year’s party will be sent out soon (refer to calendar for more details).

Year End Party

The Year End Party is a final hurrah for the year!  A chance for the swimmers to celebrate the accomplishments of the year and to say good bye for the summer.  Information for this year’s party will be sent out in 2018.
