Finding a Sponsor for Swim Team


#1

I was wondering if anyone knows of companies that would sponsor a Houston area YMCA team. Recently I started using fins as a training tool for my swimmers. I've been getting really good results because of it. However, I have a limited amount of fins for the swimmers to use. Many of the fins that we originally had are breaking down and getting too lose to wear. I would ask the parents to supply their swimmers with fins but many families are on ymca program scholarships.

Any advice or knowledge of places that would help out is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I’m just shooting in the dark here, but…

…the best way to find companies to sponsor a swim team would be to… (wait for it)… call up local companies and ask if they’d be willing to sponsor a swim team.
