Parents To Do List


  1. Find video of Missy Franklin's post backstroke interview from last night.  Notice what she says, share it with your kids.  No matter how fast you are (or how good you are at your job) you are always better at something that you enjoy doing.  The coaching staff works hard to impart this bit of wisdom to your children. There is even a Chinese athlete out there stating that her swim would have been faster if her country would learn how to have fun like the Australians. I believe this quote is from their butterflyer that trains part time in Australia.  
  2. Sign up for the Splash Bash. We've got a $10 per person budget for this event and are asking for $5 per swimmer to pay for half the costs.  It's minimal compared to the great time everyone will have this Friday. Bring a friend or two along too! We've got prizes donated by USA Swimming, pool games to play, contest giveaways and live streaming of the FINALS swimming events for that day.  We'll feed you, entertain you and send you home happy.
  3. Finish your online registration for next years team.  Get one friend that swam on your summer league team to register with you.  Please don't recruit a friend from another US Swimming Club - there are plenty of club kids, they can stay with their club where they belong.  Bring a new kid into the club experience.  The earlier we fill our groups, the longer we have to meticulously plan to make next year even more amazing than this year.

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.
