Inclement Weather Information Revisited

GIVE me your INPUT on using Facebook as a mechanism to inform our group about an inclement weather closing.  This way each coach could post for their workout facility.  Will this work or not work for you.  E-mail me your thoughts – e-mail


Don’t Forget – You Must Remember USMS!

Everyone needs to be a 2016 USMS members before they come to swim practice in January.  If you signed up for USMS after November 2015 then your membership is good for 2016.  USMS membership 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 each of us to be covered.  (On the registration form, our club is the Omaha Masters option.)


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


Registration Form Correction

A typo was made on the payment example sent on the past e-mail a few weeks ago.  The annual administration fee ($20) plus the quarter fee ($110) equals $130 – not $120 as previously stated.  Invite someone to come swim in January!!!


Inclement Weather Information

What happens if the weather is looking a little dicey? If you are not sure, call 554-2346 (office phone number for Todd at UNO).  The voice mail will be updated 30 minutes prior to the start of practice.
