With only 211 days until the 2011 Season Starts there is not a day that goes by that I do not try to come up with a new idea to promote the WNKM Swimming and Diving team. Not necessarily gimmicks, but ideas that will promote the sport, promote the school(s), and allow the student/athletes to have a positive experience.
First idea is to “Pack the Pool”. This should easily be done. It would be great to jam the pool with Students and have it a little chaotic in the pool area. WNKM is 15-3 at home in the past four seasons. Trying to generate some internal buzz in the school is good for everyone. And you never know when a pool or school record will fall. The bonus is that we could be done in conjunction with the kick off to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Last season, we sold T-Shirts and raised close to $250.
A continuing idea was something that we already did last year, but this year we will make it bigger and better. And that is the Alumni Meet. Already scheduled for August 20th, this looks to have better events this year and a luncheon after the meet. Some of the Alumni are already getting prepared both physically and mentally for this grueling event.
There are a couple more ideas but I need to get them better organized before I get them published.
