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.

Extra T-Shirts

The Pollock Family has donated about 60 t-shirts sporting the new team logo to our Booster Club. The shirts come in a variety of colors and sizes. Each family will have their chance to pick ONE shirt on Monday or Tuesday at practice. On Wednesday, any shirts remaining will be available to anyone. A donation to the booster club for your shirt is optional. The kids are now receiving their team t-shirts that were made exclusively for kids and coaches. Kast-A-Way has not yet printed our red t-shirts, if you would like to order one I suggest you call today. These shirts are being printed on a light weight t-shirt from Sport Tek.
