Bottle Drives 

RDCSC will organize 3 bottle drives throughout the season; one in fall, one in winter & final bottle drive late in the spring. Members are encouraged to collect bottles from friends and family PRIOR to the bottle drive to maximize profits.

Members MUST participate in 2 of the 3 bottle drives to complete their fundraising commitment.  If a member does not participate in at least 2 bottle drives then they must pay the bottle drive Fundraising fee of $100. This fee is charged per swimmer, not per family.

Options for payment/charges:

1. The $100 fee can be paid out at registration if the swimmer does not plan on participating.

2. After the winter/ 2nd bottle drive if a swimmer has not participated in at least 1 of the Club organized bottle drives then the bottle drive fee will be charged at that time.

3. After the final bottle drive if a swimmer has not participated in at least 2 of the bottle drives then the fee will be charged. This fee is part of a swimmer’s registration fee and charged to ALL swimmers.


If a swimmer withdraws prior to the end of the season, the fee will be due immediately if the swimmer has not completed the required 2 bottle drives. If a swimmer participates in ALL 3 of the Club organized bottle drives then for the 3 rd bottle drive, 50% of the individual’s "share" of the profits will be credited to the swimmer’s account, calculated as: Total profit from bottle drive / # of swimmers participating in final bottle drive x 0.5 = money credited to swimmer's account. 






Optional Fundraising

Optional fundraising activities give families the opportunity to raise funds to help offset their swimming fees. 

If anyone has ideas for fundraisers that they would be willing to run that would benefit individual members to bring forward to president/past president.
