There will be a brief meeting for all swimmers attending the Midwest Regional Swim Meet this weekend at the University of Minnesota. The meeting will take place on the pool deck at the 20th Ave YMCA at 6:45pm on Thursday, March 29th. We will be passing out T-shirts and also meet bracelets that all swimmers need to wear at all times while at the meet. They will not let you on the pool deck without the bracelet on.
Warm Up Schedule
- The warm up schedule only has the AM sessions listed (9-10 and 11-12). PM Swimmers (8 & Under and 13 & Over) please check the timeline and please arrive at the pool 1 hour before your session begins.

The All-Team Banquet will be Sunday, May 6, 2012 at Oakwood Elementary School.
The Mini-Dolphins Special Celebration will be Friday, April 27, 2012 at the 20th Avenue Y. (All awards for Mini-Dolphins will be presented at this event, not the all-team banquet. However, all our Mini-D’s are invited and encouraged to attend the all-team event!)
- For both celebrations we need you to use the job sign up tab to indicate if you are coming. Please sign up once for each member of your family that is planning to attend.
- For both celebrations we need people who are willing to help with set-up for the events. We are also looking for someone to create a Mini-Dolphins slide show for their special celebration. If you are willing to coordinate this effort please let us know! Please email the team at email@example.com if you are willing to help.
- Finally, we need photos! If you took pictures this season please post them to the OSHY Facebook page.
