Aquatic Incentive Programs

Upcoming Programs:

Swim to Spring Break

Date: January 12 - March 6, 2015

Time: Anytime the pool is available for lap swim

Pick a destination and make it your goal to swim the distance during 8 weeks. The destinations are Gatlinburg, New York City, Miami, New Orleans, Hollywood, and Maui. Complete the distance and win a prize. Don't worry though you don't have to swim the exact miles that it would take to drive there.  Each length of the pool counts as 1 mile. So if your destination is Gatlinburg (315 miles), you would swim 8000 yards.

  • You can carpool to your destination. 
    • Get 4 people together and agree on the destination. 
    • The team can add each person's distance to achieve the entire distance. 
    • This is a great way to keep each other motivated. 
  • Sign-up and tracking sheet will be located on the table in the pool area January 12, 2015

Past Programs:

Swim for Your Life

Date: September 29 - October 31, 2014

Time: Anytime the pool is available for lap swim

Registration: Closed

Grab a friend and swim for your life! Zombies are invading Butler's campus and you need to get to safety. Each day the Zombie line will move toward you, but you can find refuge in military bases around the Midwest. You will need to support and motivate each other to get to safety. However, the partner who doesn't finish at the end of the program will become a zombie! 

  • Sign Up with a friend. If you need a partner, indicate that on the form and we'll partner you with someone.
  • Track your distance on your partner card. Move your flag on the board.
  • The Zombie Line will move everyday...stay ahead of it!
    • Negative Yardage: If you fall behind the zombie line, you will need to swim 200 extra yards for every day you are behind.
  • The designated points are goal distances. If you want to swim more, keep going. You and your partner can battle it out to see who can swim the most during the program to see who will become the zombie!

Naughty or Nice

Date: November 3 - December 5, 2014

Time: Anytime the pool is available for lap swim

Registration: Closed

Sign up and randomly be assigned to either the Naughty or Nice team. You'll be competing by tracking your yardage every time you swim for a combined team total. The team who swims the most distance will win a prize! Which team will win, Naughty or Nice? Those who swim will decide.

  • You can swim any time the pool is open for lap swim.
  • Track your distance and the team totals will be displayed daily.
  • We encourage you to swim a minimum of 2000 yards a week to help your team.
  • Bonus yardage: During November 15-22 (week before Thanksgiving Break) bring a canned or boxed good to the Aquatic Center and get 100 extra yards/donation toward your team distance.
