New and Notes

Another fantastic weekend of swimming for our team this past weekend!  Congrats to all swimmers who participated in the OSHY Swim Series #8 and at Schroeder A+!  Many best times and quite a few new State Cuts as well!  We love seeing the swimmers hard work paying off at these meets.  Keep working hard swimmers! 

A huge thank you to all who came to Feeding America last Wednesday evening!  We had over 100 volunteers that helped prepare more than 20,000 pounds of food for distribution.  It was a great opportunity to give back to the community and come together as a team outside of the pool. 



-OSHY Winter Open, February 8-11:  An email with more specifics about this meet will be sent out Thursday morning for those families attending. 

-Practices the Remainder of this Week:

  • Thursday, February 8:  All practices will run as normal with the exception of NO practice for the Junior and Senior groups in the afternoon.
  • Friday, February 9:  No practices for any groups.

-Everyone Counts Volunteer Sign-Up:  The Volunteer Job Sign-Up for our second team hosted meet, Everyone Counts, has been posted to our website.  A reminder that hosting swim meets is a major source of revenue for our team and helps keep the cost of tuition down.  Per the Volunteer Policy everyone signed prior to registration, each family is responsible for 2 concession donations (concession donations will be open for sign-up within the next few weeks), 4 meet sessions and 1 meet tear down or set up.  To review what your family has already fulfilled this season, you will need to log into your team account.  On the left of the screen, click My Account, then $ My Invoice/Payment.  The third tab on top is Service Hours.  Our Volunteer Coordinator, Jolene Hemp, sent out an email about this event on Monday, February 5th.  Please review the email and note who to contact if you have questions related to volunteering for this event.

-Steering Committee Meeting, February 15:  The next Steering Committee Meeting will take place on Thursday, February 15th at the Appleton YMCA at 5:45 PM.  All parents are welcome and encourage to attend!

-Annual Swim Team Banquet, April 15:  We will be having our Annual Swim Team Banquet to celebrate a year of fantastic swimming the afternoon of Sunday, April 15th at a local banquet hall.  More information will come out in the upcoming weeks, but we want everyone to get this important event on their calendars well in advance.
