At the October 21st all club practice, OSSC swimmers participated in the 4th annual Synchro-Thon with their inter-club teammates. The collective fundraising goal of $10 000 was SURPASSED by the eight teams who completed hundreds of laps in the one hour time frame. Many thanks to the organizers and volunteers who made this event possible!

We understand that tagging – soliciting for donations from the public – can be daunting for both parents and athletes but there are a few tips we’d like to share to make the experience positive and rewarding for all concerned.
Before you go…..
Team members should wear a uniform, jacket, or something identifying them as a member of the club. If you are new to the club, you may be able to borrow a shirt from a team member. Alternately, we would recommend you wear black yoga pants and a sporty red or white, unmarked t-shirt or yoga jacket. Hair should be neat and tied back in a ponytail or bun. It is important to project a good image, as you are there representing the club to the public. One tip that works well: think about your athlete wearing his/her medals or display their ribbons won at competitions and events; put up a poster showing pictures of club activities and team pictures. This gives a personalized touch and provides a jump-off point for conversations.
Onsite Tagging Tips
Please note young swimmers must be chaperoned by an adult at all times. This is for the safety of our swimmers.
If you are in the first time slot for tagging, it is courteous to check in with the Customer Service Desk, letting them know that you are with OSSC and that you have a prearranged tagging time slot.
Find an appropriate place to stand that is not in the way of merchandise or the exit/entry points of the store. It will be communicated to you if the Store Manager has specific requests for where you can set up.
Prepare your son or daughter to be positive, to smile and say hello – engaging with people; this will help you to be more successful; it is hard for shy children, but it really makes a difference.
If there is room, show off some flexibility – perform some splits or poses; demonstrating your skills developed through synchro swimming will engage the public and encourage conversation.
It is not appropriate to be using electronic devices such as cell phones, gaming systems or iPod’s during tagging. This does not leave a positive impression of our sport.
Remember to smile and to show respect at all times. The store owners are doing us a favour by allowing us to use their facility for this purpose so we want to ensure our club will be welcomed back.
