Friday Parking – Parking will be available at an hourly rate in the Tuttle Park Place Garage.  Parking fees will be paid on the way OUT of the garage.  Please be prepared to pay by credit card.  Paying by credit card will allow transactions to occur more efficiently than cash transactions.  There may be a line formed to exit, so please exercise patience when exiting the garage. 

Saturday and Sunday Parking – Parking will be available at an hourly rate in the Neil Avenue Garage.  Parking fees will be paid on the way OUT of the garage.  Please be prepared to pay by credit card.  Paying by credit card will allow transactions to occur more efficiently than cash transactions.  There will likely be a line formed to exit, so please exercise patience when exiting the garage.  Those who wish to avoid the possibility of experiencing a wait to exit the garage, or who would like to pay a flat rate, should park legally in an A, B, or C parking space in the Ohio Stadium lot (unrestricted spaces only) and pay the Pay-n-Display machine by credit card before parking.  Parking cards should be displayed as directed.

Getting to the Pool – Please note that John Herrick Drive is temporarily closed for steam tunnel repairs.  If your GPS advises you to use Herrick between Cannon and Neil, 12th Avenue should be used as an alternate route.

Coaches Hospitality – Due to the length and timing of the sessions we will provide bagels, yogurt, coffee and snacks for the prelims sessions and a light dinner during finals; however lunch will not be provided.  Please plan accordingly.

We look forward to your visit this weekend!  See you soon!

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.

Coach of the Year

Dear Coach, Hope this email finds you well and enjoying the summer. We are writing today on behalf of the upcoming feature film COACH OF THE YEAR: an independent, kid-friendly sports comedy feature film based on the inspiring true story of a rag tag swim team that tries to win a state championship…without a pool to practice in. Director Dave Stott, who has coached swimming for twenty years, hopes that with this film, we will entertain and inspire kids all over the country to learn to swim. Another goal of this film is to raise awareness about drowning as the leading cause of accidental deaths and to help kids all over the country learn to swim safely. The underdog story has been told before, but not for our sport. This is a movie for swimmers (and would-be swimmers), made by people who know the sport intimately and love it passionately, and we’d love for you to be involved. We wanted to ask you and your team to help spread the word about COACH OF THE YEAR, and get you & you

Finalists!
