Welcome Back!

We are thrilled to have everyone back from the holidays!  We hope everyone had a great break filled with family and swimming :)

We have some minor changes to the practice schedule this winter which affects all groups except Senior/Junior/NPG.  These changes are based on when we have the most available coaching for our younger swimmers, which will help us hone our focus on technique and speed headed into Championships.  We are 7 weeks from Regionals!

Our adjustments are detailed in our team practice calendar which is on our website (always click more to get a better view of the week ahead) and have been updated on the info pdf. These changes put the majority of our swimmers at times when we have two or more coaches on deck.  A summary of the changes:

Mondays - no change

Tuesdays - Scarlet 1 moves to 7-8:30, no Silver Comp,no Silver Rec,  no Scarlet 3, no change to Scarlet 2 and Gold.

Weds - Scarlet 1 and Silver Comp at 5:45, Scarlet 2 at 6:15 for a longer dry land, Intro at 6:30, Scarlet 3 at 7:00, no change to Silver Rec and Scarlet Gold.

Thursday - no Intro, all other groups no change.

Saturday - add a bonus practice from 9-10 for Scarlet 1 (if you want to get an extra technique day in this is the day for you). Watch for occasional bonus practices for scarlet 2.

Sunday - add a bonus practice for Silver Comp from 3:30-4:30

Laurie will be at the pool at 5:45 this Tuesday and will give anyone a practice that cannot make a change to their schedule on short notice.

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.

Oh What a Year! 2020 in Review

  January 2020 We started the year with a bang. Zach Ward traveled to Knoxville to compete in a TYR Pro Series meet. This was a long course meter meet at which Zach swam personal bests in the 200 fly and 400 IM and he lowered team records in both events. February 2020 February brought the start of our swimmer's Championship season, starting with the High School Championship series. Ben Dunham placed top 16 in the Division 2 state meet! Regionals were held at OSU and coach Laurie did a pushup for each second dropped (lots and lots of pushups)! The Junior and Seniors went to Auburn, Alabama with the Bobcats and 98% of all swimmers achieved personal best times! March 2020 Our littlest swimmers attended the Mini Meet which ended up being our last big meet for some time. Our 8-unders loved the treats and trophies given to each swimmer. 13 swimmers qualified and trained for Junior Olympics while our seniors prepared for Sectionals. It all came to a halt on March 13. April and May 2020
