January & February Meets

Fortunately, we have been accepted into the UASC Triple Crown! However, we have been very concerned with the lack of good meet opportunities locally.  After looking at the information for upcoming local meets, we feel we have a decent solution that will prepare our swimmers most effectively to succeed at Championships.

Triple Crown - we will swim both days (relays have been eliminated from this meet).

Kelly German January 19-20 (Friday and Saturday only)
Scarlet 2 & Gold: 400 IM Friday; 100 free, 200 back and 200 fly Saturday.
Scarlet 1: 200 free & 200 IM Friday; 100 free, 200 back or 100 br, 200 fly or 100 IM Saturday.
Silver: Any events on Saturday
Junior: Lew’s choice Friday and Saturday

January 26-28 is the Indy meet for some of our swimmers, everyone else is eligible to attend the UAC Frosty Fun meet Sunday, 1/28 at CSG.  Last chance to qualify for Indy is at the Triple Crown.

February 3-4 we will add the GCSTO Last Ditch Meet on Saturday and Sunday only.  Swimmers participating at Indy should choose one day.  We have been very pleased with how our swimmers are competiting at this pool.

February 11, we will remove the meet at New Albany.  The coaches have never been very impressed with how we swim at this pool. With the addition of the GCSTO meet we feel it would better serve our swimmers to head to practice on that day.

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.
