Travel Meet Opportunities

Auburn Classic, Auburn University, March 2-4
The format is Prelim/Finals for 11 and overs with top 16 11-12, top 16 13-14 and top 24 seniors swimming in finals.  All 10 and under events are timed finals swum in the morning.  There are no qualifying time standards for this meet.

Senior Team Travel: Senior group swimmers have the opportunity to travel with Coach Lew to this meet.  The seniors have been traveling to this meet for several years and have enjoyed many successes.  Lew will touch base with the eligible swimmers regarding this meet.

Age Group Travel:  Swimmers not in high school and age 9-14 may travel to and compete at this meet in one of two ways. (1) arrange travel on own, Lew will coach the swimmers in attendance (should the meet grow enough to warrant an afternoon session for younger swimmers, Laurie will attend).
(2) Travel with Coach Laurie.  In this arrangement, Coach Laurie will fly with your swimmers and transport them to the meet. She will supervise the swimmers at all time, arranging meals, hotel, etc.  A minimum of 4 swimmers are needed for this option.

Action needed: If you are a parent of an age group swimmer, please touch base with Coach Laurie if you’d like to attend and which travel method you will use.

This is a single age championship meet for swimmers age 14-under in the Eastern half of the US.  It has grown to about 1000 swimmers with amazing talent.  We have seen National Age Group records broken at this meet and future National Teamer’s compete.  It is a fun and challenging experience.  Swimmers of an odd age (9, 11, 13) qualify with National AA times, swimmers of an even age (10, 12, 14) qualify with National AAA times.  Coach Laurie will need to hear from you by February 4 if you would like to attend.  It’s a great family trip, however, we are happy to travel swimmers to the meet if cost is a factor.

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.
