The Ravens swim team is training enthusiastically under the guidance of head coach, Pierre Lafontaine.

As a competitive club team, the funds provided by Carleton are limited, so we look to our supporters to help the team succeed.  The excellence fund reduces the financial burden on the athletes and allows the team to excel in the pool as well as in the classroom.

Last year’s funds allowed the team to train between lockdowns, despite the increase in the cost of pool time per swimmer due to the COVID spacing requirements.

The funds raised in 2019 enabled the team to have the first Florida training camp in over a decade.  This contributed to the team’s success at OUAs.  There were many personal best times set, and Carleton moved up in the standings.

With your support, Carleton Ravens Swimming will continue to succeed far into the future. As in the past, our athletes will continue to pursue both academic and athletic success, while enjoying their newfound freedom and responsibility as young student-athletes.

This fund will be used towards coaching honorariums, pool rental, and travel (when that is possible!).
