2016-17 Team Information

Our information and schedule for the 2016-17 season is now available!
Important changes to note:

  • The fundraising fee is required, but gives you an opportunity to fund raise the cost of your typical fees.  You can always write a check for fundraising instead of participating.
  • We have at least two travel meets on the schedule.  One in March for the Senior group, and one in April for our age groupers (in Clearwater, FL with time standards).  Those that attend will have the opportunity to put 50% of monies raised over their minimum in a  travel account to help with the cost of attending those meets.
  • The Scarlet group fee is for this WINTER, we expect spring and summer training to run at about $500-600.  
  • When you add in the extras we charged last year (fundraising, MC Fitness surcharge) the increase in fees is between 2-5%
  • We will only collect registration and meet fees at active.com.  This saves us about 3% on processing.  You can either set up monthly electronic installment payments with me or pay by check.  These payments are outlined on the fee info page of the packet.
  • The booster club has fantastic ideas for helping you raise that fundraising fee.  We want to make it as painless as possible.
  • The website will be updated ASAP.  It is still under construction!
  • Thanks to some creativity from MC we did not have to do anything extremely weird with the schedule.  Everyone fits into the space we have.
  • The registration fee is good for one year.
Action items needed ASAP:
  1. Register online this week and save $10!
    Based on tryouts the Scarlet group is FULL - DO NOT WAIT TO REGISTER!
  2. Send us a brief testimonial to use on our website, or review Buckeye on our Facebook page.
  3. Tell your friends to join.  We have a huge need for high school swimmers and will make it as  easy as we can (schedules) for them to be a part of Buckeye.  We would also like to see more fall sport kids join our Columbus North Silver program!


Looking forward to a terrific 2016-17 season!!

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.
