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:

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.
