Hydrate
Just a reminder to stay hydrated throughout the day.  This could be a long, hot meet. Smart swimmers that stay hydrated & out of the sun will have the advantage.

Kind Words
The team has had a terrific spring & summer of training with lots of new & effective stroke changes. We are looking forward to & expecting a lot of very fast swims from our swimmers. However,  not all races come together as planned & sometimes we are left disappointed.

No matter how you feel about your swim, your swimmer or your coach please remember to have kind words in the team area and around teammates. We look forward to a fun and fast meet, however disappointments could happen. Let's handle those with grace.

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.

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.
