Annual Osseo Swimming and Diving Alumni Meet and Breakfast


Please Join us!

 

There are many ways you can be involved…

Volunteer during the meet!

Cheer on the Black and Orange from the pool deck!

  • This event is organized by the current season’s captains.
  • Alumni sign up for their events the morning of the meet.  (Note:  It is fun to have relatives competing against each other…  i.e. brothers against each other, or dads vs. sons, etc…)
  • We have this meet in the morning, during the last half of practice, during Winter Break for school.  (We will open a lane for warm-ups at the start of practice, at 7:30 A.M.)

Following this meet, there will be an alumni reunion breakfast for those in attendance, at 10:30 A.M. Directions will be provided at the meet.

See you there!

Alumni Rick Haley, Kyle Tonn, and ? put in a good showing in the 200 freestyle.
