    The Vergennes Swim Team Is Looking For Sponsors!

    We are the Vergennes Swim Team. For over 40 years, we have provided a fun and competitive summer youth swim program in northern Addison County. Following a great season in 2022, where we placed second at the Vermont Championships, we are looking for sponsors. Your sponsorship will help pay for a new electronic Dolphin Timing system this year, provide duckies and ribbons, offset registration fees for swimmers, and provide scholarships, and equipment needs.

    Our 2022 season was a huge success! We had over 100 swimmers ranging from ages 5-19. These swimmers dropped over 1,000 seconds in their races throughout the season. We had over 60 swimmers attend the State Meet in White River Junction, where our team placed 2nd at the State Championship! We are one of the largest summer swim teams in the state of Vermont, and we are anticipating an even larger and stronger team this year! In addition to a fun and competitive environment, VST also promotes a lifelong love of swimming, safety in the water, good sportsmanship, and new friendships.

    One of our sponsorship goals is to help the Vergennes Swim Team remain accessible to all families in our community. There can be many hidden costs in swimming, such as team swimsuits or caps. A 2017 study by USA Swimming found that 79 percent of children in families with household incomes less than $50,000 have no/low swimming ability. In addition, children who qualify for free or reduced school lunch programs are 63 percent less likely to be good swimmers. By providing scholarships, registration/fee offsets, and covering more of the hidden swimming costs, sponsors can help make swimming accessible to all our community children. USA Swimming also found that if a parent was a good swimmer, their children are 4.3 times more likely to also swim. Thus by sponsoring the VST, you may also be influencing the next generation of swimmers.  

    Our Sponsorship levels for 2023 are:

    Bronze <$100- Name listed at home swim meets, Name or Business on VST website,

    Silver $101-$350 2’ x 2’ Banner displayed at meets, Name/Logo on VST Website,

    Gold >$350- 2’ x 5’ Banner displayed at meets, Name/Logo on VST Website
