Spring & Summer Schedule

Our spring practice schedule and Spring/Summer fees are now available on the website and teamapp.
Registration is NOT required of returning swimmers.  Simply send Laurie and email that you wish to swim and we will invoice you.

New this season- Challenge Weeks.  During challenge weeks, we will challenge each training group to try something new and extend their swimming in a way that they haven't before.  Challenge weeks will start on the last Monday of every month (April 30, May 28 and June 25).  There will be an additional challenge week for Scarlet Gold swimmers the week of April 9.  The schedule for challenge week will be as follows:
  • Senior and Junior, no change in schedule.  
  • Scarlet Gold follows the Junior schedule and will train with Junior. We ask that swimmers help each other carpool so that they can attend all 5 practices (Sunday through Thursday) during this week.  This will be an increased opportunity to grow your training in a new way and challenge yourself to reach a higher level.
  • Scarlet 2, Silver 2, Scarlet 1 and Silver 1:
    • Mondays, no schedule change, focus on learning a new technique skill.
    • Tuesdays and Wednesdays all swimmers 6-7:45     
    • Thursdays, all swimmers 4:45-6:30
    • Sundays, no change 
    • *We ask that every swimmer try to attend all four weekday practices during challenge week.  We will learn a new technique skill on Mondays then apply it in various ways through the week.  There will be no penalty for low attendance during this week (beyond the lost growth opportunity).
  • Intro: Intro group will swim with Silver 1 on Monday from 6-7 and Thursday from 5:45-6:30

Girls and Boys Practices will return this spring to Sundays.  We love this and would certainly do it more often if we could figure out how to make it more convenient.

Summer Training - summer is a great time to add more to your swim schedule.  The kids do not have the stress of school and homework, which allows many to have increased focus at practice.  We expect to have morning practices at a local outdoor pool (Minerva Park is our first choice) and afternoon/evenings at the sports club.

Summer meets- there are not many! They are posted on our Google event calendar.  We continue to look for a good July opportunity for the swimmers.

Move Ups- any changes in group will be sent by early next week.  Please keep in mind that if you are invited to the next higher group you may choose to remain in your current group.

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.
