*** No scheduled holidays during the month of November! ***
The JCC has begun administering access passes for the OSM swimmers in order to improve the security and efficiency upon entering the building. They are charging a one-time $10 setup fee. We ask those who have not yet received their pass to ask the JCC front desk before/after their next practice. A kind reminder that these passes are to be used for access for OSM practices and not for other use of the community center (gym, weights etc.)
Swim meets are a great way to have fun, stay fit and motivated, and gauge your improvement. It is worth all the stress and pressure from performance anxiety! There are several opportunities for meets this year; the first one up is our very own OSM charity meet. I hope everyone will participate in the Willy Lee Meet, which was Tom’s way of encouraging everyone to jump in the pool, get over nerves and have fun.
