**Important information for determining maximum lap donation**

*The swimmer's level of ability may affect the sponsor's level of commitment. A less experienced swimmer may only be able to swim 1-4 laps without stopping; whereas high school/master swimmers can swim a mile or more (66 laps/mile).


If the swimmer is going to swim the traditional laps, (a) the lap shall be a continuous swim from one end of the pool to the other, any speed, any stroke (b) No touching the bottom of the pool or stopping while swimming laps (c) have someone count the swimmer's laps.

Our goal every year is for everyone to have a great time while raising money to support a local children's charity in the New Orleans Area.

Here's to wishing everyone a great time participating this year! We are looking forward to all of creativity!
