Swimmer's of the Meet

Congratulations to all of our swimmers on a fantastic showing at the Bowling Green Holiday Invite.  We were very pleased with the swimmers preparation prior to the meet.  The swimmers were relaxed in the team area and shared a lot of smiles between races.  We had two swimmers set new team records at the meet. Andrew Huang captured the 25 free with a 14.01 and Kaitlyn Sallows shattered an 18 year old record in the 500 free with a 6:03.20!

Our first swimmer of the meet is Savannah Cornelius! Savannah swam best times in all of her events and dropped a whopping 10 seconds in the 50 breast!  She has worked hard not improving her technique which is really showing. Keep up the good work Savannah!

Our next swimmer of the meet is Piper Lorentz! Piper also swam best times in all of her events dropping 5.5 seconds per 100.  Piper has come a long way since the beginning of the year and shows huge leaps forward every week.  Way to go Piper!

Our last swimmer of the meet recognition goes to Sebby Martin! Sebby has worked very hard over the past six months to change his understanding of swimming and his technique.  It is finally starting to show at meets with some terrific drops.  Sebby had four best times and paced a terrific 500 on his first attempt!  Congratulations Sebby!

Keep up the good work and smiles Buckeyes!  We coaches are proud of each of you.  GO 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.
