A note from team parent, Will Indest


To further Laurie’s spotlight of the Officials Clinic on May 6th, I thought I would provide some context.   I began officiating last Fall as a way to contribute to the my kids’ activities and the sport, get off of those narrow bleachers, and to enjoy watching all of the events up close.  I officiated at over 40 sessions last year, including the Junior Olympics in Bowling Green, and it was tiring (running up and down the side of the pool without falling in can be a trick), trying (sometimes coaches and parents can be, um, passionate), but also mentally  challenging (in a good way), fashionable (who doesn’t like white over blue?)  and very rewarding.  I have found my new hobby and I encourage you to consider joining the Buckeye Officiating Team of Bill Hammond and me.   You’re going to the meets anyway, right?  If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call at 288-7003.  The Officials Clinic is on May 6th from 1-4 PM at the Northwest Library, 2280 Hard Road, Columbus 43235.

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.
