Kroc Center Open House

COME TO THE KROC - any current, former, potential Omaha Masters swimmers are welcome to an Open House at the Kroc Center. Come and meet the Kroc Center staff, take a tour of the building, go swimming and have some yummy food. Tuesday, August 26, 6:00PM - 8:00PM. Food will be served at 7:00PM. Please let Erin Sullivan know if you are going toattend so we will have enough food. And, bring a friend along who is interested in swimming. Kroc Center just completed some pool maintenance: newly painted pool, newly painted locker rooms, and new water. Come and have a look!


No Practice

No practice will be held on Monday, September 1.


No practice will be held the evening of Friday, September 12 at CSM due to a Volleyballgame – the locker rooms will be used by the athletes.


Program Fees

A questioned was raised about program fees, specifically would they be raised.  They will remain the same for 2014.  After a couple of months running practices at both sites then it will be evaluated to see the number of swimmers participating in the program.  So for now it is still $100 per quarter and $40 per month.  A swimmer may participate at either or both pools at no additional costs.



On Saturday, September 13 (this does not conflict with a Husker Football game), Tim Patterson is again organizing a golf outing for the Omaha Women’s Swimming and Diving Team.  This event was a lot of fun in the past years, and I usually don’t like to golf but I did like this event.  It is not a fundraiser it is more of a friendraiser – getting supporters of the swimming community together.  Eagle Run will be the course, with a late morning tee time of 10:00 am (with lunch afterwards).  Masters, boosters, alumni, and friends are welcome to be part of this.  The entry fee is the same as last year - $42 ($168 per team).  It would be awesome if we could get at least 2 foursomes from our group! Contact Tim ( or Todd (  Please let us know asap, even if it is tentative.
