Putting the FUN in fundraising

First, thank you to everyone that has participated in the Micahel's Meats Fundraiser, supporting our National Team and Olympic Trial swimmers and coach.  Your outpouring of support has been such a positive light for this group!

We did have a group of people asking if they could just donate cash, which is absolutely OK.  But we also wanted to offer a fun contest for cash donations.  We have put together a fundraiser that centers around Olympic Trials to help generate excitement for trials and a bigger budget to support our team.

Materials for this fundraiser will be handed out at practice next week. 


(June 13 – 21, 2021)

$50 per square - Win on all TOP 3 PLACES OF ALL 14 SWIMMING EVENTS (42 Winners)

How It Works:

  • There are 100 squares in a 10 x 10 grid formation, numbered 1 – 100. 
  • Squares will be $50 each.
  • After all the squares have all been sold, the numbers for the tenths and hundredths places on the board will be randomly assigned.
  • After each swimming event is completed, the last two digits of the top three finishers will be used to determine the payouts.
    • Example – 1st Place 50 Free time is 24.19.  You use the 1 (tenths) on the BLUE portion of the bracket and move over to the 9 (hundredths) on the RED portion of the bracket to determine the winner.  The square where these numbers align is the winner.

Payouts by Place

1st Place Payout

2nd Place Payout

First Place Payout




4 Random Winners (if all squares sold)

$100 per square number

Total Payout to Winners $2,500

$2,500 will be kept by the Buckeye Swim Club Boosters, Inc.
to support the National Program.

The original bracket board will on display at the Columbus North Sports Club.  A photograph of the completed bracket will be emailed/texted to all participants after numbers are randomly assigned.

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.


Pictured are our Sunday Finalists Jeremy, Luke, Lauren, Rachel, Macey & Bobbi.  Back row: Ellie, Elissa, Maddie, Nick & Jeremy. 

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.
