2013-2014 Schedule

We are working on the 2013-14 schedule and should have some general information out within two weeks. We are in rough draft stage but believe many of you will be very pleased by what we have to offer. We have some challenges that we are hoping to address to help make the program more appealing to a wider variety of swimmer.  Here are some of the things you have asked us to address:

  • Offering or expanding on our seasonal programs to better accommodate multi sport swimmers
  • Adding a loyalty program.
  • Offering expanded practice options (distance group, turn group, new swimmer group, etc.)
  • Finding more pool space.
Regarding pool space - we have received the OK from the Boy Scouts legal counsel to lease and build at Camp Lazarus.  We are currently waiting on an OK from their board and need to decide who is responsible for what financially in this arrangement.  We have heard nothing new from The Lakes.

In the meantime, we need everyone to help recruit new swimmers to the team.  We'd like to add 40 swimmers this year! Bring your friends int o try practices after summer league champs end. Please also have your friends call or email for more information.

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.
