Pickerington Tiger Sharks

Last One of the Season - Zapatas, Banquet and More

Hi Tiger Shark Fam!

Our last and final week of the 2021 season is upon us! Hopefully this will be a quick and concise email!

As you might be aware, the board is looking into several options for the future of the shark tank. Currently, we rent the pool from the city and to put it simply, we would like to be in control of our own pool. Please complete the following survey with a simple yay or nay. We need a quorum of 60% of the members to respond with a yes to begin the process of exploring options in Pickerington for our own pool.


Highlights of this Newsletter:

  • Winter Swim Options
  • End of Season Banquet
  • Zapatas Fundraiser (Save The Date August 2)
  • Exciting News for the Future of the Tiger Sharks team

Zapata's Fundraiser - TOMORROW AUGUST 2nd

End of the Season Banquet (August 5th from 8-10pm)

Join the Tiger Sharks for our end of the season Banquet and Pool Party. We will have a short awards ceremony followed by Pizza, drinks and desserts at the pool. We do have capacity limits at the pool. Pictures and past ribbons will be available as well!

Please remember this event is only for swimmers and their immediate family members.

Please RSVP for the party on the website just like you would for a meet:

How many from your family will be attending our Banquet and Pool Party?

Please sign up any attending sibling guest over 10 years old as adult guests. This will allow us to get a more accurate head count for pizza.

We also need everyone to contribute for the party as well by supplying the following:

  • Last Names: A-L Please bring drinks (water bottles and cans only, no 2 liters)
  • Last Names: M-Z Please bring desserts (cupcakes, brownies, cookies, no nuts and nothing that needs to be cut)

Help The Tiger Sharks Build A Pool!

Now that the season is officially over, it's time to kick into high gear a committee to campaign to build our pool! We want to offer year round swimming options to our swimmers, those in our community and the entire east side of Central Ohio.

We are looking for people with a vision and a commitment to growing the sport of swimming for all ages!

We need all hands on deck to get the word out so we can begin fundraising for a pool that will give our community the year round pool it desperately needs.

If you are interested or have any experience with such a venture, please contact us at tigersharks.us@gmail.com.

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