Thanks for registering for the OSM Fall/Winter 2018 Session. We’ve filled up all available registration spots and look forward to another great year!
KICKOFF PRACTICE: September 23rd @ Carleton (9:45 – 11:15AM)] Expect a very crowded lane at this practice as it is the kickoff and will combine both Sunday crews (JCC is closed). Be nice to your lane-mates! Regular practice schedule to resume thereafter.
BAGELSHOP BREAKFAST @ 11:30AM AFTER PRACTICE (1321 Wellington St W). Join us and fellow swimmers for breakfast afterwards, and feel free to bring the family!
Access to the JCC You will require photo ID to access entry to the JCC, please make sure you have it on hand for the front desk for admittance. A smile at the ready go also goes a long way (the J has been exceptional with their care and concern with OSM). Some early morning swimmers might require a JCC card (it will be a small fee) so that there is not a backlog at the front desk at that hour. We will confirm at your next morning practice.
Willy Lee Meet (November 17) There will be an organizational meeting for this meet next week; if you are interested in joining, please send us a note. Alternatively, if you have any tickets, prizes, or contacts that would benefit this charity event, please contact us. Your help is greatly appreciated. We of course will be encouraging you to swim!
Equipment A reminder to bring your equipment to practices. Aqua Sport on Iris Street has a fabulous selection of swimming aids. We will regularly use fins, hand paddles (boards and pull buoys are available at the JCC in limited supply.

The general form of communication will be through ~bi-weekly email updates. If for some reason you aren’t receiving these emails, check your spam folders as several swimmers have found them there. If you change emails (or would like to add a secondary email – say work), please let us know so we can update our distribution list.
