Just a few more hours to register and save

Thank you to everyone that has already registered early.  This is extremely helpful to us in planning for the next season and how hard we will need to recruit for the upcoming year. Just a reminder that you only have a day and a half left to save $40 on your registration for 2017-18.

Important Dates:
August 13  - first day of Senior & Junior practice
September 5 - first day of Scarlet & Silver practice

Notes/New items for this year:
  • Last year we pulled a huge chunk of your fees into a booster fee.  This chunk has been put back into this year's training fee.
  • Fee increases are as follows: Registration fee from $200 to $250 (this is only $210 if you register by tomorrow night) $25 family booster membership, $75 required booster fundraising.  The core training fees have remained the same, with minor changes within each sub group (for example: Scarlet Gold is slightly higher, Scarlet 1 slightly lower).
  • There are admin fees for not paying attention to your dues and deadlines.  While we are not big fans of adding admin fees, we coaches want to spend our time coaching your kids, not chasing you to pay your dues and respond to deadlines.  We are coaches first and foremost!!
  • You should have received your group invite for next year.  If you did not, please contact your coach.
  • We have a new intro to swim team group that runs by the session.  The fall session will be 45 minutes on Sundays and is intended to be combined with a weekly swim lesson (at any swim school).  If you know of anyone interested in trying swim team that is still in lessons, please send them to us!
Swim Clinics
As we finalize the August schedule, we will release information regarding swim clinics.  Remember that if you bring a prospective new swimmer to these clinics, your clinic will be free.

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.

Oh What a Year! 2020 in Review

  January 2020 We started the year with a bang. Zach Ward traveled to Knoxville to compete in a TYR Pro Series meet. This was a long course meter meet at which Zach swam personal bests in the 200 fly and 400 IM and he lowered team records in both events. February 2020 February brought the start of our swimmer's Championship season, starting with the High School Championship series. Ben Dunham placed top 16 in the Division 2 state meet! Regionals were held at OSU and coach Laurie did a pushup for each second dropped (lots and lots of pushups)! The Junior and Seniors went to Auburn, Alabama with the Bobcats and 98% of all swimmers achieved personal best times! March 2020 Our littlest swimmers attended the Mini Meet which ended up being our last big meet for some time. Our 8-unders loved the treats and trophies given to each swimmer. 13 swimmers qualified and trained for Junior Olympics while our seniors prepared for Sectionals. It all came to a halt on March 13. April and May 2020
