Texting Mania

In speaking with the coaches, we have all noticed an increase in casual texts to us from parents.  And often times, the parents actually want to speak about something important.  Over the course of the Regional week-end our entire staff was inundated with texts starting at 4:55 am and going as late as 11 pm.  While texting is a very convenient way to ask a quick question or to let us know that you're running late, please think before sending that text. If it takes more than 160 characters to convey what you wish, please email or call.  If it is an important subject to you, please email or call. If we don't have a gaggle of kids around us before or after practice, you are also welcome to speak to us there.  If we do have a gaggle of kids, it may be hard for us to appropriately respond to you, but by all means try (we do like speaking with you)!

Thanks,
Your Buckeye Coaching Staff

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.
