Buckeye takes Miami by storm

The team had a stellar showing at the Ohio JO Championships this past weekend.

Ashley Sallows competed in the 400 IM,  earning a personal best. 

Thaine Nederveld competed in his first meet as a teenager. After earning all of his cuts as a 12 yr old,  Thaine 'aged up' celebrating his birthday on Monday.  Thaine was impressively poised & earned best times in the 200 br & 400 IM. 

Will Magee competed in the 50 back & dropped 4 seconds! 

Andrew Huang competed in seven events,  with best times in 5, top 8 finishes in two events and three new team records! Andrew cleared Chase Swearingens 100 back, 100 br and 200 IM!

Kaitlyn Sallows swam 7 events, earned 7 best times and picked up three new zone cuts in the 50 free,  100 free & 50 back! Kaitlyn placed in several events with a top place of 4th in the 200 free!

Elizabeth Intihar swam her last meet as an age grouper, turning 15 at the meet. She picked up three best times and had a huge drop in the 400 free,  earning a sectional cut and 4th place! Elizabeth broke Kristen Sivard's team record from twenty years ago. Kristen was a terrific freestyler that went on to swim for Miami!

Congratulations Buckeyes!

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

Is my child ready to swim meets?

We had a coaches discussion on this  - and yes, all of our Elite group swimmers are ready for meets.  Please look at the meet calendar and sign up for the days that you are available.  We will pick events that are appropriate for your swimmer.  We pick events that your child can do well and will build their confidence.  We also believe strongly in placing your child in events that will challenge them.  While we strive for excellence, making a mistake in an event is OK and can be a great learning experience.  Trying and failing is teaches a lot more  about your abilities than not trying at all.
