Reminder - With the cold weather sticking around, PLEASE be sure to have your swimmer(s) dressed appropriately with socks, shoes, coats, and hats when they leave the pool. If your swimmer is sick or is not feeling well, please do not send them to practice. Our swimmers work very hard, and we want them to stay healthy so they can see all their hard work pay off at meets!



1. There will be a new official's clinic TODAY, 11/29, at 5:30pm in the pool classroom. There are no prerequisites as this is an information session only. Brian Lewis will walk you through the process of becoming a new official and answer any questions you have about working a swim meet. You can email Brian [email protected] if you have any questions about the clinic.

2. No Age Group Practice Saturday, Dec. 3rd due to a HOME High School Swim Meet. Come out and cheer on your Trojan Swimmers & Divers as they compete against Columbus North HS at 10am.

3. Practice calendars can be found on our website CLICK HERE.

4. The registration deadline has closed for the SSC Closed Invite. If you would still like to sign up your athlete, please email Coach Chris [email protected]  (cannot guarantee they will be placed on a relay)
