Don’t Forget – You Must Remember Dates!

During the Holiday Season the practice schedule will have some changes.


CSM No Practice December 24 to January 5 (practice starts again on Jan 6)

Kroc Center No Practice on December 24, 25 and January 1

Don’t Forget – You Must Remember USMS!

Everyone needs to be a 2015 USMS members before they come to swim practice in January.  If you signed up for USMS after November 2014 then your membership is good for 2015. This is not a suggestion - this is a MUST.  USMS is the insurance leg of our program in which everyone in the pool and on the deck must have a USMS membership in order for all to be covered.  (On the registration form, our club is the Omaha Masters option.)

Spread the Word – Take a Flyer

We have a great program going at our new location - now we need more swimmers!  Think of all the people who might enjoy becoming a part of our group.  Attached is a flyer and we will have some copies at practice.  Please take some to work to hand to a co-worker or put on a bulletin board.  If you own a business, put fliers on the counter.  Tell your family, friends, and all your facebook and twitter friends. The goal is to maintain the cost of the program - and in order to do that, we need more bodies.  Attached is a flyer you can print or e-mail.  If you have other ideas for marketing our program, please contact Todd. 

Program Philosophy

Our program means many things to many people.  For some it's about weight loss or weight maintenance.  For others it's about stress relief.  For some it is their choice of fitness.  You may have the competitive itch: swimming or triathlons.  Just as goals are varied, so are individual personalities.  Please approach each other with open minds and appreciation for our differences.  We have a great program that tries to make room for anyone who wants to participate in a structured workout and I would like to keep that philosophy.  - Todd

Inclement Weather Information

It’s that time of year … what happens if the weather is looking a little dicey?  Well if you are not sure if we are having practice then call 554-2346.  That is the office phone number for Todd at UNOmaha.  The voice mail will be updated 30 minutes prior to the start of practice.

DiVentures Update

Although DiVenture enjoyed having us at theirpool and I see a lot of possibilities with our program swimming there, we will not be continuing there at this time.  The decision was purely financial - it cost too much to rent the facility.   Hopefully something can be worked out in the future.
