Pool Repair Update

Pool repairs, while delayed, are going very well.  Fixed to date:

Entire pool has been repaintedThe leak has been located and has been partially repaired, the rest to be repaired this week.The underwater lights are repaired and working! The club intends to refill on Friday.  We will have practice Saturday morning for Senior, NPG, Junior and Scarlet Gold at 7 am.  Please come prepared to do dry land.  We will not have Silver practice at the pool Saturday morning.  Silver Recreation and Silver Competition are welcome to attend practice Sunday 3:30-4:30.
All swimmers should be prepared for dry land these first few days as it will take some time to heat the pool. 

Meet Schedule

We have updated our meet schedule and uploaded the pdf to the website here:  Meet Schedule
This is up to date through the summer long course season.

New this year, you will be able to view meet host information packets directly in the google calendar.

We have removed the October Dayton meet from the calendar altogether.  We have added the Ohio Swimming Safe Sport Pentathlon on October 7.  This is a local meet with a very important message.  The age group swimmers season plan was not originally set up to be prepared for competition by October 7.  We will not change our preparation, however we believe this will be an important learning experience beyond the pursuit of best times and did not want to miss the opportunity.

Schedule this Week

We have a verbal agreement from Aquatic Adventures in Hilliard to rent their pool (6 lanes) from 5:30-7:15 Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week.We will have our swimmers in as follows:
Senior, Junior, NPG, Scarlet Gold & Scarlet 2: 5:30-7:15 all days Scarlet 3: Tuesday & Wednesday 5:45-7:15 Scarlet 1: Tuesday & Thursday 5:45-7:15 Silver Competition: Tuesday & Thursday 6:00-7:15 Silver Recreation: Tuesday & Wednesday 6:00-7:15 Intro: Thursday 6:30-7:15

2018-19 Team Information

The 2018-19 Information and fees are now available on our website or by clicking here.
Unfortunately, we aren't able to collect registration at this time.  We are having complications with the Active system and collection of high processing fees.  We are working on this and will let you know as soon as registration is available.  We do anticipate releasing group recommendations on Monday or Tuesday.

Fall schedule and information

We are working on fall information.  No huge changes are planned, but we are trying to expand our introductory and recreational groups. This is proving difficult to work into our schedule, thus the delay.

End of regular season training

We will finish our regular season of practices for all Intro, Silver and Scarlet swimmers Wednesday evening, July 18. Please check the Google calendar before heading to practice.  

We do still have a handful of swimmers training for meets that are scheduled for the first weekend of August,  we may occasionally invite groups in to keep them company.  Just watch the Google  calendar or team app for those notices.

Gold group will have Junior group testing next week.  Schedule TBA, but very similar to current schedule.  We want everyone in to swim the 2000 for time, even if they are not considering moving groups.


No practice July 4

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!

Long Course Practice 7/1

We have added a long course practice for our Regional participants on Sunday, July 1 from 10:30-Noon.  The practice will be held at the Gahanna Swim Club  (148 Parkland Dr, Gahanna, OH 43230).

This practice will replace our Scarlet & Silver practice that would normally have been offered on July 4.  It will also provide our regional swimmers with an opportunity to practice in the competition pool.

We anticipate having extra room and will have a spare lane available from 10-noon for any of our team swimmers that feel like getting in an extra swim.  Please email Coach Laurie if you would like to utilize the spare lane.
