An Open Invitation for Buckeye Parents to become a USA Swimming Volunteer Official

Hello Buckeye Parents, I am Will Indest, a fellow Buckeye parent, and a 7-year volunteer official for USA Swimming and Ohio Swimming.  Ever wondered what it would take to get out of those uncomfortable bleachers and get on the pool deck near the action.  Consider becoming an official.  No prior swimming or officiating experience required.  In fact most officials were not swimmers themselves. 

The steps are straight forward and can be found here:  https://www.teamunify.com/czohlsc/UserFiles/File/Officials/Become%20a%20USA%20Swimming%20Official%20OSI.pdf.    Most importantly, the required clinic is coming soon on Sunday, October 8th at 1PM at the Carriage Place Community Center at 4900 Sawmill Road, Columbus 43235.  

Any questions, call or write me at 614.288.7003 or will@dtvc.com.  Come join us on deck and help us  run the best meets so our kids can get their best times, (and our families can get to the next thing on time.)
Parents that officiate will have their booster fundraising requirement waived.

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.
