Each Piranha family is required to participate in the Team’s fundraisers.  Every other year, the Team runs a Swim Challenge, a large effort swim-a-thon for which all Piranhas are obliged to collect pledges at minimum levels.   The minimum required level of financial participation will be determined by the PAC during its annual budgeting process.  On alternate years, the PAC will determine if a smaller fundraiser is required to meet their goals in support of the Team.  Fundraiser participation is a requirement of Team membership. Any requests for variation on your payment must be approved by the Head Coach before registration. Any swimmer in arrears of fundraising requirements will not be permitted to practice until account is settled.
Money raised from fundraisers fund guest speakers, Team items such as tents for summer meets, Team banners, much needed computer software for the coaching staff, timing equipment and allows the coaches to attend travel meets and clinics. 
2011 Commitment
As stated in your registration information you were given at the beginning of the swimming year, the commitment for each family is detailed in the packet cover letter.  Any family who fails to raise the minimum amount will have the amount deducted from their meet fee account.
