June 2 Health Mandates Lifted

With the June 2 change in mask mandates, we will have some changes in our safety precautions as follows (starts June 2): Masks will no longer be required to enter our swim practice facilities. Whenever social distancing cannot be maintained, masks will be worn. We will follow and comply with the rules set forth by any other facility that hosts us for practices and meets. All swimmers must maintain 3 feet social distancing whenever possible.  This includes during dryland, between swims, before and after practices. Swimmers will be expected to stage 3' apart before and after practices, once stage there will be no 'visiting' of each other. Conversations should be held quietly, if you can be heard outside of your 3-foot circle, you are too loud.  We do not provide seating at our facilities.  Parents are welcome to bring a chair and watch practice at Minerva Park.  We will continue to livestream practices at Columbus North.  Parents are not permitted to stay and watch practice a

Meet Updates

Thank you to everyone that has been able to quickly respond to meet invites.  We recognize that there have been some kinks to work out in Commit, but thankfully our meet hosts have been patient! Please make sure you login to Commit weekly to check for meet invites.  Also, review the calendar and your billing tab.  Please promptly pay any outstanding invoices.  Our current meet sign-up is for the June BG meet.  We anticipate Creekside and Championship sign-ups soon.  One nice aspect of Commit is that we can attach the meet pdf to the meet signup info.  So if you have a question about the specifics of the meet, you may reference those.  Just a reminder that the contact information included is for our team representative, coaches, and officials to utilize.  Parents should never contact a meet host with questions.  We will oftentimes announce meet information and updates on the swim meet channel of Slack.  Please make sure you have joined there.

Movie Night Fundraiser

  World Premiere Swim Club Screening Event Our team has the special opportunity to participate in the world premiere of a new swimming documentary called The Water Is My Sky! This documentary was filmed over an eight-year period and was produced by a former swimmer and coach. It tells the stories of three swimmers, Tom Wilkens, Connor Jaeger, and Taylor Garcia, swept up in the hunt for a shot at Olympic glory.   Per the film's synopsis, "As each swimmer endures heartbreaking setbacks and soaring triumphs, they grapple with the underlying meaning behind their pursuit, revealing the true spirit of ordinary individuals chasing extraordinary dreams."   Here is the teaser trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aE6rjwxfmvs Location of the Event : Entirely online from home.
