Practice Schedule Tweaks

We have a few schedule changes that need to be made for our swimmers benefits.  These have come out of seeing the schedule in action and coaches discussions about what is and isn't working within the schedule.  Please make a note of the following changes -these are effectively immediately.

Thursdays:
Silver 1 will start later and finish later: 4:45-6:00
This will allow the group to work with Silver 2 for 45 minutes which is beneficial for both groups.

Fridays:
Scarlet will start at 4:45 and swim until 6:30.
Silver 1 & 2 will start at 5:30 and swim until 7:00
Once again, the coaches feel that we need to combine the groups to create a better learning environment for the swimmers.  The energy level on Fridays has been high and a bit difficult to work with.  By combining the groups we can push each lane at an appropriate pace.

Sundays:
ALL groups now start at 6:00
This is a tentative change as we wait for confirmation from OWU that we can utilize the entire pool at 6:10 until 7:30.

Scarlet 2:
We would like to encourage our Scarlet 2 swimmers to take Friday afternoon off and replace that practice with Saturdays at 7 am with Senior.

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.

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.
