Swim Parent Information- Welcome To BYKS

Following is a "New Parent's Guide to Swimming/Swim Meets".  I hope that this information is helpful to our new swim parents.  If you still have questions please feel free to contact me at lesallows@columbus.rr.com or find me at practice/meet.  I have 2 girls that are in Scarlet 2 practice and we will be at all the meets whenever 10-U, 11-12 age groups are swimming!  Welcome to BKYS, we are happy to have you and your family!

A Buckeye Parent’s Guide to Swim Meets
Swim meets are a new experience for many Buckeye swimmers and parents.  The following information will help make that experience more enjoyable.
Swim meets are a great opportunity for swimmers, parents, and coaches to see how all of the hard work during the season is paying off.  For parents, it’s also a time to meet other parents and have fun interaction while the swimmers are spending time with their teammates and making new friends from other teams.  The entire swimming community is great and this is your chance…

IKEA opening day

IKEA opens on Wednesday, June 7 and is expected to have 10,000-15,000 visitors a day for the first week.  Should southbound traffic to IKEA  backup onto 71, the plan is to close both Polaris exits and turn southbound traffic around on 270 & 161. Basically, it has potential to create complete gridlock in the area for several days.  As a result, Scarlet will not practice on Wednesday, June 7.  Senior/Junior will still have practice.

We urge swimmers and parents to double check their traffic apps and plan accordingly prior to leaving for practices/meets during IKEA opening week.

Summer schedule begins Friday, June 2

Friday morning practice important note!
We do not have access to Minerva Park this Friday. As a result Scarlet & Silver is canceled.  Senior/ Junior will have practice from 8-10 am at Columbus North Sports Club.

Swim Meet Entry

Please take a moment to login to your portal and check that your swimmer is properly indicated for the next two meets.  You must tell us if you are not attending by responding to invites.  If you are attending, please make sure you have correctly selected each session that you wish to attend.

No practice Monday

Have a safe and Happy Memorial Day!
