Important Meet Updates

Just a  quick reminder that only our 12-unders will swim at Akron.  Our older swimmers were closed out of the meet.  Warm-ups for this meet are at 8:10 am.

Our entry into the June 8-10 Flag City Meet was accepted.

Our entry into the June 15-17 Pau Hana Jill Griesse meet  was accepted.  The meet is full.

Summer schedule

We are still working on our summer schedule.  We have been approached by a closer outdoor pool regarding renting their space for the summer and have been working with them for some time to see if it would work.  We like this pool because it opens the opportunity for use anytime between sun up and sun down.  Thus, we are patiently waiting for their decision.

Below is a draft of our goal schedule, this is subject to change. Anywhere you see Minerva Park, keep in mind that the location could change to the nearer pool that we are negotiating.

Akron Meet Update

Unfortunately our older swimmers were closed out of the Akron meet on May 12.  Our 12 and unders will still swim the meet.  We are looking for a fun, but also quality replacement and have been in discussions with  Ohio University.  We would like to do a combined practice with Bobcat Swim Club including time trials.  We would finish with pizza or a cookout.  We are currently looking at the weekend of June 2 for that.
