Welcome to Buckeye Swimming’s 29th Year!
Buckeye is dedicated to developing and motivating swimmers at all levels. We recognize the contribution of all our members and strive to maintain athletic excellence in a supportive team environment. Buckeye has a caring and innovative coaching staff that strives to help swimmers find their best. We excel at finding pathways for individuals to progress in a team environment. Buckeye has high achieving athletes; from nationally ranked swimmers to top rated scholars, we are proud of our athletes in and out of the pool!
We are primarily a competition swim program, with offerings that extend into recreational swimming. We are unique in Central Ohio in that your swimmer does not have to be the fastest or most dedicated swimmer to have access to our top coaches. We are Inclusive! While we do have ‘try-outs’ these are generally to find the right fit for our swimmers. If a swimmer can demonstrate basic stroke knowledge and safety in the water, we will likely find a group that fits.
Comprehensive training schedule. Very few programs in Columbus can offer more than 4 practices each week for their age group swimmers. Buckeye offers up to 6 practices weekly. This gives young swimmers the opportunity to attend 3- 4 practices each week with some flexibility to participate in activities outside of swimming. This also allows older swimmers that have decided to commit fully to swimming, the opportunity to attend and improve at a higher level.
Small Team/Big Results
We are a small team of about 100 swimmers. For us, this means that every swimmer is important. As a result, our swimmers see improvement in their swimming unmatched by other programs. Swimmers and families that immerse themselves in our program, especially on the competitive side, will find that every teammate will support and get to know them, including those in different age groups. We regularly finish in the top three in Ohio in the small team division at the State Age Group Championships. We regularly finish well ahead of teams that are much larger than ours. We do not do this by being ultra-selective in who we bring into our program, we do this through commitment and coaching.
