Last week, the four USA Swimming Foundation Swim-A-Thon Gold Medal Clubs were announced and now it's time to announce the winner of the USA Swimming Foundation Swim-A-Thon Contest! Over 550 teams hosted a USA Swimming Foundation Swim-A-Thon in 2017, raising almost $7 million in fundraising dollars.
It's that day your swimmer has been training for all year and dreaming about all week. The horn blows, the race begins, and Johnny is off to the races. It's the 400 free! He touches the wall and looks back at his time, he swam a 4:43.53. He jumps out and asks you, "What are my splits?"
Unless you have an expensive stopwatch you won't know until results are posted. BUT, did you know that OnDeck, the mobile application you already use to access your swim team's info, has a way to time races and even post unofficial times the whole team can see? Best of all, it just got a big facelift and we want to show you around.
Another year in the books and we are seeing more and more money raised per fundraiser. In 2017 the average USA Swimming Foundation Swim-A-Thon run on the TeamUnify system raised $11,150! What could your club do with an extra 11k?
Because of each team's efforts, in 2017 we reached an all new high total of Swim-A-Thon dollars raised—a staggering $5,537,971! In total, TeamUnify teams have raised over $29,400,000 using the TeamUnify Fundraising Platform since its inception.
USA Swimming's Club Excellence program recognizes USA Swimming organizations with high-performing athletes 18 years and younger. Then based on points, they rank these teams and categorize them into Gold, Silver, and Bronze tiers. For the fourth year running, Nation's Capital takes top honors.
OnDeck is an extremely powerful tool for swim team administrators, coaches and parents alike. It gives you complete access to your swim team's information, all on a mobile device. From best times and time standards, to meet declarations and volunteer job sign-ups, this application is a must have in swimming and we want to show you a few tips to make your experience even better.
We are completely twitterpated here at TeamUnify. OnDeck for iOS and Android have just launched the ability to post to Twitter from TeamFeed. No longer will you need to login, type, attach and post your messaging on multiple mediums. With TeamFeed, your team communication can be published to all the important places right from OnDeck. Send messaging and updates to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, OnDeck's TeamFeed and your Team Site all from one location, saving you time and making social sharing easier than ever.

I first started using the TeamUnify system when we lived in Louisville, KY and my children swam for the Tritons. I loved the setup because the interface was easy to use, and there was a simple login process for parents. It was easy to sign my children up for meets, races, and Triton events, download meet packets, pay for meets/season, and follow the practice and social calendar.
In August, we launched a brand new portal connection for your team to the new home of youth sports at SportsEngine.com. When families search for youth sports programs for their child, this sports directory gives them a list of teams in over 20 sports in their area. And, we want to help your team rank higher!
