Intro to Swim Team, Winter Session

Please share this with your friends that are interested in swimming!

We will resume our intro to swim team group on January 4 and will offer the group through the end of our teams competitive season.  Practices will be held Thursdays 6:45-7:30 and Sundays from 3-3:45.  Last practice will be Thursday, March 1.  Current intro swimmers- if you would like to continue in our group, simply send me an email.

We would like to add 6 swimmers to the group to bring our total to 12.  So, if you have friends interested, please let them know about us.

Cost for the winter session is $175 for our returning swimmers (you will receive an invoice for this, please do not register at Active). Cost for new swimmers is a total of $250 ($150 to register at Active and another $100 invoiced to the family).  Please feel free to share cost information to your friends.

Each swimmer in the group will be members of Buckeye Swim Club, with a USA Swimming membership.  This means the kids will be able to participate in meets.  The first meet that is a great opportunity is the UASC Triple Crown.  At this point, each of our swimmers can compete in a 25 free and 25 back if they are 8-under. Our 9-10 year olds should be starting with 50 free and 50 back. These events are offered Saturday morning, January 6.  If you would like to swim, simply respond to your Active Invite or send me an email by Friday.

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.
