2021 Armada Season Cancelled
Unfortunately, the Wells Branch Armada swim season has been cancelled due to current COVID 19 restrictions. Based on these restrictions, the Armada Board has decided not to participate in the 2021 season as we feel it is what is best for our team and families.
The Board will continue to meet throughout the year and prepare for our return in 2022.
Fundraising: Please help us with fundraising by being aware of opportunities at work. Many companies have matching programs or reward employees for volunteer time. See below for more information.
Sponsors: Also, have a business you want to advertise? An Armada sponsorship is a great way to do it, and may be tax-deductible. Please contact Justin Anderson if you are interested in sponsoring the team or helping with fundraising.

What is your company's corporate donation policy?
It has been brought to our attention that certain locally-based businesses donate to 501(c)(3) organizations either through matching programs or through programs that contribute money to organizations for which their employees volunteer time. Usually, the hours have to be tracked in the company's system or minimal documentation has to be completed, but that is often the only requirement.
Please find out if your company provides this benefit, and if so, please designate WBA as a recipient. Also, if your company has a public website that explains and advertises their policy, please send it to Mike Zayas and we will put a link here to make it easier on everyone.
Here are a few that have been brought to our attention:
Dell: Make A Difference - Please note that in addition to matching programs, Dell volunteers with ten or more hours with any charitable organization and time tracked in the Dell online tracking system may choose a charity of their choice and Dell will make a donation.
GM: Dollars for Doers - Through Dollars for Doers, the General Motors Foundation will add to your volunteer impact by awarding a $500 donation to an eligible organization for which you have volunteered 50 or more hours within the calendar year.
HP: Employee Giving Program - Please help us keep fees low going forward, and make the best use possible of opportunities such as these.
Thank you for your help!
