The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to make a very difficult decision regarding the Buckeye Aquatic Academy. As of January 2021, the academy (Ohio State Swim Club and Ohio State Diving Club) will no longer be offered as part of our Ohio State Student Life departmental programming.

You will recall that in July, the difficult yet necessary decision was made to suspend the 2020-2021 season of the Swim and Dive Club programs in the BAA given the need to de-densify campus and dramatically change operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

At this time there is no timeline or pathway to returning the BAA swim and dive teams to their full program levels, nor is there a timetable for hosting youth events on campus. As a revenue-based program, unable to generate income since late spring, the impact has become unsurmountable.

We did not arrive at this conclusion easily and we appreciate and will miss all of you who participated in and supported this program over the years.

Thank you for your compassion for the affected staff and support during this challenging time.
