Water sports, like swimming and surfing
are loved by many people. Some people swim casually as a hobby while
others are more hard core. If youíre one of the latter, then you should
be looking at ways to get a sponsor. Finding a sponsor isnít as
difficult as you think. With sponsorship letters and proposals and a
bit of persistence, you could be on your way to a career in swimming.
Here are a couple tips on how to find a swimming sponsor.
Unless you have your own Olympic sized pool in your backyard, youíre
going to need to have access to a good pool. There are ways to get free
access to pools. You could be a lifeguard at a pool. High schools,
universities and the local
are a good way to start. If there are country clubs near you, you could
try to get a lifeguarding job there as well.
If you have access to a swimming pool, and free access to boot, then you
could try to give swimming lessons to kids. Kids love swimming and if
you also lifeguard at a pool, your manager might be able to set you up
with some students who want to learn swimming. If you arenít offered to
teach swimming lessons, then you could probably advertise and find some
children who want to learn. As a
you will probably have parents approaching you and asking if you could
teach their kids.
Finding sponsorship can take many forms. If you are able to work at a
swimming pool, you should look into selling swimming accessories,
such as goggles, swimsuits. Buy purchasing in bulk, you will be able to
get good discounts and be able to make a profit fairly quickly.
