2020 MAFD Dolphins Summer Swimming team,
Help fund summer swimming in Blount County, Tennessee in 2020. The Maryville Alcoa Flying Dolphins (MAFD) Swim Team is a non-profit team that provides the opportunity for Blount County children to learn competitive swimming skills and compete in fun meets during the summer. The Dolphins often provide the first opportunity for young children to advance their swim skills and compete in a swim meet. Many Dolphin swimmers continue their swimming participation into high school and to colleges across the country. The MAFD Dolphins have provided summer swim teams to Blount County for 48 years.
This summer the Covid-19 virus shutdown has canceled the Dolphins fund raising meet, Smoky Mountain Invitational (SMI), which has run for 47 years. The Dolphins use the proceeds from SMI to pay lifeguards and coaches as well for kick boards and team organization software. Please contribute a few dollars toward our goal of keeping the swim team afloat. We are trying to raise $5,000 to cover our expenses this summer. All funds are used to provide a special summer swimming experience for children from 6 to 18 years of age.
The team is a registered non-profit with the State of Tennessee and you will receive a receipt for your contribution. The children learn the sport of swimming in a fun family atmosphere with their “summer friends”. Please help us this summer!
