Tri-County Program Book – Business Advertisements

How would you like to advertise your business or organization in front of residents from five counties and support a great swimming tradition featuring more than 700 athletes from 34 swim teams in Gloucester, Camden, and Burlington Counties? Here is your chance!

The Tri-County Swim Championship will take place on Saturday and Sunday, August 3rd and 4th at Green-Fields Swim Club, located in West Deptford, NJ. 700 athletes swim preliminaries and finals over the weekend event that is attended by over 6,000 people from around South Jersey.

To offset expenses, the 2019 Tri-County Championship host club, Green-Fields, is offering you the opportunity to promote your business by placing an advertisement in the souvenir program book. Along with your business advertisement, the souvenir program book contains the meet entries indicating the events in which each participant is entered, along with personal ads and recognition pages for all graduating seniors from each team. These souvenir books become keepsakes for swimmers and their families for years to come!

Please look over the one-page advertising sheet rate sheet to learn how you can advertise your local business to more than 6000 potential customers during the 2019 Tri-County Championships. Your continued support will help make this event possible.

Our Publication deadline is July 14th, 2019. If you have any questions or comments please contact our Executive Board at or me personally at the email below. All checks and hard copies of ads should be mailed to the address below.
