Good Times

Week 2 Recap & Announcements

Thank you all for a great week of swimming.
Please watch the video below.

IMPORTANT! Winter lesson registration is open for current swimmers into any spot. Note that not all fall time slots are available for winter. We get bumped from the pool for Duchesne high school during the high school season. (This happened to us at BT, too. All the after school pool space in Omaha is used for high school swimming from mid-November through the end of February.) We will have much more time available again in March. Both Coach Shelby and I are willing to add more weekend spots to try to fit everyone in for winter. We are sorry for the scheduling inconvenience and hope you stay in the water this winter even if it is at a different time. Families who have the disappearing time slots and move to other times will be given first shot at getting their fall times back in the spring.
