Hello TorpedoesNation,


Summer Steam

                Entries are now complete for the Summer Splash.  Please go online to check the events your athletes have been assigned.  If you have questions or concerns, please talk to your athlete’s coach.  Often times coaches will choose to challenge athletes in ways you may not.  We do have the ability to change events, if need be.

                If you have not signed your athlete up, you need to contact Coach Dave immediately.


Job Signups for Summer Steam.

Job signups to work the meet are now live!!  ALL swim families will be expected to help work 4 shifts  for this swim meet.   If you are interested in working extra shifts (or have a teenager that needs a job with some purpose 😊), please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Ken Coleman (


Making Waves Orders

                Our orders from Making Waves have arrived at the pool.  We will try to distribute those items as soon as possible.  Some team suits have not yet been embroidered, and are expected next week.


Team T-Shirts

                If you have not yet received your team t-shirt, please see your coach, as they are at the pool now.  (This includes Masters and Divers)


Summer Swim Lessons

                We are offering multiple sets of summer lessons this summer.  While your athletes will not need them, if friends, neighbors or co-workers ask, you can share these options with them.  Registration for all sessions is now open.

Holiday World and Splashing Safari Torpedo Tuesday    

                You should have received an email regarding Torpedo Tuesday at Holiday World.  $45 for admission and lunch (on top of the regular freebies offered at Holiday World and Splashing Safari).  Please state, when signing up, how many tickets you need!  Practices will be cancelled that evening, so come and enjoy the day!


Summer League Meet

                We have been approached, once again, by the Greene County Stingrays to join them for a one night meet.  Because of competition, we usually limit this meet to athletes in Orange, Blue and Bronze (and their siblings).  We are looking at June 27th for this meet.

                This meet will be relatively short, outdoors, and a great chance to race for some of our younger athletes.  Please watch for more details.  Kids always have fun at this meet.


Treasurer Tuesdays

                The treasurer is with her sick child, and will not be at the pool this week.


Upcoming Events:

27 May – Memorial Day, No Practices.
