Sporfie & SwimTopia
New for 2023, SwimTopia has partnered with Sporfie! Sporfie is an easy-to-use live streaming and fundraising platform that allows users to stream and share practices or meets using nothing but their phone (without having to even log into an account). Sporfie is versatile and can be used by athletes to celebrate exciting races, coaches to analyze swim strokes, or parents to simply peek into a practice.
Let’s Break it Down- What Exactly is Sporfie?
- Sporfie is a simple, easy-to-use live streaming and fundraising platform that allows teams, athletes and coaches to stream practices and meets anytime, anywhere.
- The team signs up with Sporfie for either one or two live streams and can pay for that service outright or pay through their fundraising efforts.
- Using just a smartphone, a GoPro/Mevo camera, or installed cameras at your facility, you can live stream your swim meets, practices and more. This allows family and friends to join the stream and watch live at NO cost to them. Viewers don’t even need to create an account!
- Share a link to your team’s landing page for quick access to meets or practice sessions. Add a pin code to your events if you would like to restrict your audience to just parents, coaches, or players.
- The entire swim meet footage is saved in the Cloud, so you can replay, save highlights, and download the action at any time. If you have two streams, you can also use Sporfie’s unique “picture on picture” feature. This feature allows you to place the image of a scoreboard, if you have one, on the live stream, making it even easier to follow the action!
What Does this Partnership Mean for SwimTopia Customers?
As part of their partnership with SwimTopia, Sporfie is offering special pricing for SwimTopia customers and their communities. This partnership includes the ability to use Sporfie as a team fundraiser*, earning money for the team and Sporfie’s live streaming for FREE when you hit your fundraising minimum!
*Let’s Talk about that Incredible Live Stream Fundraiser
Sporfie offers a fundraising platform for teams. This platform allows teams to sell sponsorships and parent callouts that appear in the corner of your teams’ live streams. These logos or callouts appear in rotation for 5 seconds, 4 times every hour of live streaming.
The logos that appear on the livestream are linked directly to the sponsors’ websites, providing great value to sponsors – users can click directly onto websites while watching online.
Sporfie’s fundraising platform allows team members to directly sell sponsorships to companies for a set fee. Team members can upload company logos and process payments directly through Sporfie’s platform. Team members can also purchase ‘parent callouts’ to raise money for the team and support swimmers.
Sporfie provides swim teams with training, printable materials, and support to generate team sponsorships through the Sporfie platform. You will not be alone!
Working with your team, Sporfie sets a window for your team’s fundraising. Team members can sell sponsorships to companies for $100, and Parent Callouts for $30. The team receives 70% of their fundraising proceeds. Your funds can be used to pay for Sporfie’s live stream service or, if you hit the 30 sponsor fundraising goal, your live streams are free and your team makes $2,100. And there is no upper limit to how much you can raise, sell 100 sponsorship spots and your team makes $7,000!
Special Pricing for SwimTopia Customers:
Pay for it outright:
- 1 stream = $250 for 4 months
- 2 streams = $399 for 4 months
- Business logos on stream: $100 (team keeps 70%)

Again, sell 30 digital logo spots and your team makes $2,100 and gets your live streaming for free. But there are no limits, sell as many spots as possible and make 70% of every dollar!
