MC Fitness Waivers & Use

Just a few reminders when practicing at MC Fitness:

  • All swimmers must have a parent or guardian sign a use waiver before their first practice.  Allow 15 minutes for this.
  • Swimmers should wait in the lobby until a  coach arrives.  At no time should a swimmer be on the pool deck without supervision.  Please try to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of practice.
  • Parents are welcome to watch practice from the top row of the bleachers.  MC Fitness is very strict about our interaction with non USA Swimming members during practice time.  (This is actually due to USA Swimming insurance guidelines).  Once the kids are in the water, parents cannot speak to swimmers or coaches and must either be in the bleachers or wait in the lobby.
  • Swimmers are not permitted to use member locker rooms or towels.  Even swimmers whose parents are members.  When our swimmers arrive to use the facility for Buckeye, they must behave as if they are a guest of the facility.
  • Please limit team locker room use to 5 minutes prior to practice and a quick and quiet 10 minutes after practice.  No climbing on lockers or into lockers.  The locker room is not our playground.  Always leave it neater than you found it. 
Together we can be great and valued guests of the MC Fitness Center.  Thank you for your help!!

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.

Oh What a Year! 2020 in Review

  January 2020 We started the year with a bang. Zach Ward traveled to Knoxville to compete in a TYR Pro Series meet. This was a long course meter meet at which Zach swam personal bests in the 200 fly and 400 IM and he lowered team records in both events. February 2020 February brought the start of our swimmer's Championship season, starting with the High School Championship series. Ben Dunham placed top 16 in the Division 2 state meet! Regionals were held at OSU and coach Laurie did a pushup for each second dropped (lots and lots of pushups)! The Junior and Seniors went to Auburn, Alabama with the Bobcats and 98% of all swimmers achieved personal best times! March 2020 Our littlest swimmers attended the Mini Meet which ended up being our last big meet for some time. Our 8-unders loved the treats and trophies given to each swimmer. 13 swimmers qualified and trained for Junior Olympics while our seniors prepared for Sectionals. It all came to a halt on March 13. April and May 2020
