Scarlet & Silver Break

We are getting ready to begin our Scarlet & Silver break from the pool.  All Scarlet's & Silvers will have April 1-21 off.  We hope this is enough time for you to all miss us and look forward to being back in the water. At Buckeye we believe strongly that a break from training is great for forgetting bad habits.  When the kids return we begin anew on our emphasis of good and effective technique. Open practices this week are Monday, Weds & Thursday from 4-5:15.

Senior & Buckeye Select Breaks are ending

The Buckeye Select swimmers are near the end of their 5 week break and will return to the pool on Tuesday, April 9.  Please note that the first two weeks of practice will be held entirely at Columbus North Sports Club. The Senior group is nearing the end of their 4 week break and will return to the pool on Monday, April 8.  Coach Lew will communicate the schedule directly with you.
