OSM Winter Registration

Hello OSM swimmers,
So very sorry we pulled the plug on registration. The announced shutdown took us by surprise and was very last minute.
We will suspend registration until further notice and keep our fingers crossed it will only be 28 days until we are back swimming. Trust that we will keep you posted in the coming weeks about resuming swimming in the winter season.  
The commonality of these latest restrictions is that it is very hard. Swimmers are known for their work ethic, perseverance and tenacity. Pull out all your reserves and let’s get through this! I am so very thankful for each and every one of you OSM members. You leave an indelible mark every practice.
Wishing all of you peace and hope this holiday season.
Best,Marie, Emily + Coaches

OSM Fall Indoor Starts Next Week

Hi OSM Swimmers,
I hope you are just as excited to start our indoor season next week as we are! Just wanted to send a quick update to remind you of a few things before we jump in the pool.

Your first practice will be Monday, September 21.

Please be sure to enter and exit from the rear doors (closest to the pool)

Friendly reminder that change rooms are unavailable at this time so please be sure to bring a towel and come ready with your suit on

We are starting practices in the SHALLOW end of the pool.

When you enter the building, please follow the coach’s instructions on where to leave your bag/clothes/towel before making your way to the shallow end of the pool.

If you have any questions, please feel free to let us know!

See you poolside,
Emily, Marie and Coaches
