Pickerington Tiger Sharks

April Update - Registration Dates and Upcoming Season

Big picture

Hello PTS Family!

We are so close to registration!!! Make sure you are checking your email because next Monday (around 12pm) registration will open for returning Tiger Sharks. The following week new swimmers will be able to register.

On the registration form this year, we will be including options to buy spirit wear and yard signs to display for your swimmers!

Also, on the registration form will be your chance to volunteer for some essential positions to run our season smoothly. If you can commit to any of these that will be greatly appreciated as volunteers are the backbone of our organization. On top of these, we will still need your help to run successful meets.

For those wanting to become officials, there will be a training some time in May.

I know that many of you are planning your summer vacations and would like to know when the meets will be and I would like to give you an answer today, but TCAL is holding their monthly meeting on April 8th, so we will know more by registration.

They have let us know there will not be a physical CHAMPS this year, but they are working on the details for a possible virtual end of the season competition.

As far as practice times, we are finalizing the schedule, but keep your week day mornings between 7-9am open as in past years.

We will continue to keep you informed but for now, keep your eyes peeled for your registration link next week.

Thanks, Abbey Fatica

We are in an immediate need to fill a couple positions for the Executive Board this season in order to run smoothly and efficiently.

If you are interested in any of these positions or want to know what they entail, please contact Abbey Fatica at tigersharks.us@gmail.com.

A Big Tiger Shark Thank You!

If you've been around the pool the last six years, you've probably seen Jim Garrett around. He has served on the board as our Treasurer and most recently as our TCAL league rep. We want to thank him for his years of service to the team.

His granddaughter is pursing high levels of swimming this summer and we wish her well in her future endeavors. While we will miss Jim, he assured us that he will continue supporting the Tiger Sharks when he can. Thanks for everything, Jim!

April 11th- 5:00 pm Board Meeting

Where: Combustion Meeting Room or Zoom, link available upon request

Urgent - Open Coaching Staff Positions

  • Do you know someone who is a natural leader with a strong, competitive drive?
  • Do you know someone who has a background in competitive swim that loves working with kids?
  • Do you know someone looking to lead and build up the next generation of swimmers?

The Tiger Sharks are starting our search for a 2021 Head Coach, and Junior Coaches. Please contact tigersharks.us@gmail.com if you know someone with these qualifications who could be interested in a position for the upcoming season.

Build Our Pool

Your PTS board is looking for those with a vision who are interested in seeking ways for PTS to continue to grow and train young swimmers. We will be discussing at the next board meeting the creation of a "Build the Pool" committee.

This committee will be responsible for researching our team's capacity to seek avenues for building our own pool.

If you are interested or have any experience with such a venture, please contact me at sherimcclurg89@gmail.com or 614.329.3798 to connect.

This is an incredibly exciting venture and in the VERY early stages of planning that we hope will build steam and become a reality for generations of PTS swimmers in the future.
