Parents of Buckeye 1-ders and Buckeye Too groups,

Demand for the beginning competitive group has been overwhelming! We thank you for your support, but…we are having growing pains! This is good! With that in mind, change is once again upon us.

Beginning Monday, December 5, we have rearranged the Buckeye 1-ders and the Buckeye Too groups to better meet the needs of our youngest swimmers. We recognize that any schedule change can be disruptive to family schedules and will work with you over the next several weeks to help you transition to new times. We made as few changes as possible, keeping in mind sibling schedules, ability levels, and number of swim days per week. We tried to find the best fit for every child, to improve their strokes, increase their endurance, and match their social and emotional development. With all that in mind, we now have 3 groups for our novice swimmers. The Buckeye Too group, the Buckeye 1-ders, and our newest group, the Combo group.

Please review your child’s group, schedule, and locations above. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to talk with Coach Patty or Coach Laurie.

We will occasionally offer Saturday morning practices (once-twice per month) and follow those with Breakfast Club.

Again, thanks for all your support for your swimmer, the coaches, and yourselves. With the holidays upon us, life is chaotic. We always appreciate all you do for your swimmer and the club.

Have a great holiday season, and….Go Bucks!!
Coach Patty 
Note from Coach Laurie:  These changes will not be reflected on our team Calendar for 1-2 weeks.  Thank you for your patience!

Extra T-Shirts

The Pollock Family has donated about 60 t-shirts sporting the new team logo to our Booster Club. The shirts come in a variety of colors and sizes. Each family will have their chance to pick ONE shirt on Monday or Tuesday at practice. On Wednesday, any shirts remaining will be available to anyone. A donation to the booster club for your shirt is optional. The kids are now receiving their team t-shirts that were made exclusively for kids and coaches. Kast-A-Way has not yet printed our red t-shirts, if you would like to order one I suggest you call today. These shirts are being printed on a light weight t-shirt from Sport Tek.


Pictured are our Sunday Finalists Jeremy, Luke, Lauren, Rachel, Macey & Bobbi.  Back row: Ellie, Elissa, Maddie, Nick & Jeremy. 

Team T-shirt Orders

Parents you may order a t-shirt for yourself by reply email with your size.  They are $10 for parents (we already have swimmers sizes and there is no charge for swimmers tees) So! Yours truly has finally gotten it together and figured out a t-shirt for the season.  I was having extreme difficulty settling on something that captured how I felt about all the greatness going on in our program and the amazing loyalty we have from our families.  Finally we have something - it is at the printer and should be to us in a week or so.  They will not begin printing until next week, so parents can order shirts (kids get them as part of your fees).  Just let me know what size you want, payment is due to the boosters on receipt of the shirt.  This is a white 100% cotton pre-shrunk t-shirt with "Buckeye Proud" on the back and our team logo on the front left chest.   Orders are due Tuesday morning.
