Parents of Buckeye 1-ders and Buckeye Too groups,

Demand for the beginning competitive group has been overwhelming! We thank you for your support, but…we are having growing pains! This is good! With that in mind, change is once again upon us.

Beginning Monday, December 5, we have rearranged the Buckeye 1-ders and the Buckeye Too groups to better meet the needs of our youngest swimmers. We recognize that any schedule change can be disruptive to family schedules and will work with you over the next several weeks to help you transition to new times. We made as few changes as possible, keeping in mind sibling schedules, ability levels, and number of swim days per week. We tried to find the best fit for every child, to improve their strokes, increase their endurance, and match their social and emotional development. With all that in mind, we now have 3 groups for our novice swimmers. The Buckeye Too group, the Buckeye 1-ders, and our newest group, the Combo group.

Please review your child’s group, schedule, and locations above. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to talk with Coach Patty or Coach Laurie.

We will occasionally offer Saturday morning practices (once-twice per month) and follow those with Breakfast Club.

Again, thanks for all your support for your swimmer, the coaches, and yourselves. With the holidays upon us, life is chaotic. We always appreciate all you do for your swimmer and the club.

Have a great holiday season, and….Go Bucks!!
Coach Patty 
Note from Coach Laurie:  These changes will not be reflected on our team Calendar for 1-2 weeks.  Thank you for your patience!

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.

Coach of the Year

Dear Coach, Hope this email finds you well and enjoying the summer. We are writing today on behalf of the upcoming feature film COACH OF THE YEAR: an independent, kid-friendly sports comedy feature film based on the inspiring true story of a rag tag swim team that tries to win a state championship…without a pool to practice in. Director Dave Stott, who has coached swimming for twenty years, hopes that with this film, we will entertain and inspire kids all over the country to learn to swim. Another goal of this film is to raise awareness about drowning as the leading cause of accidental deaths and to help kids all over the country learn to swim safely. The underdog story has been told before, but not for our sport. This is a movie for swimmers (and would-be swimmers), made by people who know the sport intimately and love it passionately, and we’d love for you to be involved. We wanted to ask you and your team to help spread the word about COACH OF THE YEAR, and get you & you

Is my child ready to swim meets?

We had a coaches discussion on this  - and yes, all of our Elite group swimmers are ready for meets.  Please look at the meet calendar and sign up for the days that you are available.  We will pick events that are appropriate for your swimmer.  We pick events that your child can do well and will build their confidence.  We also believe strongly in placing your child in events that will challenge them.  While we strive for excellence, making a mistake in an event is OK and can be a great learning experience.  Trying and failing is teaches a lot more  about your abilities than not trying at all.
