Classic Annual Holiday Social – Save the Date


Our annual Holiday Social will be held on Sunday, December 15.  More details to come – like a new location.  But for now all you need to know is the date of this festive fun family event – plan on attending!



Post Turkey Hangover


We will be having practice this year on the weekend after Thanksgiving.  Yes, we will have a 5:30 am practice on Friday, November 29 and another practice on Saturday, November 30 at 7 am.  Thank you Erin and Amber-Sky for making this happen for the swimmers.



2013-2014 Program Fees


To belong to our program a swimmer has four responsibilities:  be a USMS member, pay the annual Administrative fee, pay the Coaching fee, and give back to the sport.


The fee is $20, with checks being made out to "Samland." UNOmaha and UNMC students, College of St. Mary students, and Creighton students will have the Administrative fee waived.


The Coaching Fees for the program has two options; quarterly or monthly. The quarterly fee is $100. Or the other option is a monthly fee of $40. The monthly fee is determined on the monthly calendar, not as a 30 day cycle. UNOmaha students and College of St. Mary students will have a reduced rate of $15 per month and are requested to pay for 3 months at a time. Each individual determines the number of days they want swim per month. Coaching fees will not be pro-rated, if you swim 1 day or 20 days the financial responsibility remains the same.  


Finally, you are encouraged to "give back" to the sport of swimming!! This is not mandatory nor will it be managed. Giving can come in many forms. You can become a booster club member. You can volunteer at a swim meet; Masters, College, High School, Age Group, YMCA, or Summer League. You can be a web master for a swim program. You can be a volunteer coach for our program. Or it can be as simple as "putting in" lane ropes or "taking out" lane ropes for our own swim practice. "Giving back" is fun facet to the philosophy of this program!
