Regular Practices begin September 5

Welcome back to the pool.  All groups will begin regular practices on Tuesday, September 5.  Each swimmer also recently received an email detailing their groups practice schedule.  If you did not receive this, contact laurie@bkyswim.com immediately!

Team CapsWe will hold off on ordering team caps about one more week.  This will give all of our late signups one last chance to get their personalized cap order in.  With the change to a new team suit, we are also switching of to red team caps!  Very exciting :)  Once that order is placed, we would expect the caps to arrive around the end of September.  Those will then be distributed at practice.


Save $50We have approximately 10-14 spaces left in our Silver group & 6 in Scarlet.  Please encourage your friends to join us!  We have the most space available for swimmers age 8 and younger. We will be giving a $50 discount to both you and your friend should they join before September 17.  Have them use the code FRIENDS17 at registration.  Don’t forget to send us their name so that we can discount your team fees.  This discount is only eligible for Silver, Scarlet, Junior and Senior groups.

Intro to Swim Team
We have a new intro to swim team group that will meet Sundays this fall from 3-3:45.  The group is designed for kiddos that are currently in swim lessons and can swim about a length of the pool on their own.  The group is very low commitment and is only $150!  If you have a friend on the fence about joining, please tell them about this opportunity.

TEAM SUIT FITTING
Sunday, September 17
Scarlet swimmers at 1:00
Silver swimmers at 4:00
Senior & Junior at 5:45 


We emphasize the importance of well-fitted suits and equipment to enhance your swimmer's performance and increase their comfort in the water. We encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to fit your swimmer for the right-sized team suit.  Suits must snugly fit the body and have no visible gaps and minimal wrinkling.  By USA Swimming rule, boys suits must not cover the knee.

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.
