Hi Eagles! To commemorate the swim team’s incredible 5-0 season and Divisionals win, Jakob has designed a 2018 Old Farm T-shirt. The shirt has text on both the front and back and comes in navy blue (you can see the t-shirt at the Custom Ink link below). Each shirt costs $17.50 (plus.49 processing fee) for a total of $17.99. If there are any profits, they will go to the Old Farm Swim Team. All shirts will be delivered to Jakob who will distribute them. If we don’t get 24 or more shirts ordered, we will have to cancel the order, and your money will be refunded!
Assessments for all swimmers interested in the Pre-Team and Little Eagles Programs will be held June 4th-7th at either 4:45 pm or 5:45 pm. Please use this Sign-Up Genius to register for an evaluation session. Each swimmer should sign up for one 15 minute assessment slot. In the comments field, please indicate your child’s name, age and the group (if any) they were in last summer. Coaches will make swimmer placement recommendations by 6/8/18. Practices for both LE/PT will begin on 6/11/18. Please contact Amantha Linkie at email@example.com with any questions.
The registration system for the Old Farm Swim Team is now open. Please register your swimmers in Team Unify regardless of whether or not you plan to make it to registration night. Please use this link to complete your registration. Payments can be brought to registration night, mailed in, or paid by credit card through the pool store. You will find more details on payment in Team Unify.
Please note that unlike in past years, we are asking that those interested in participating in the Little Eagles and Pre-Team Programs register in Team Unify now and choose the roster group “Pre-Team” but do not pay for your registration until after your swimmer has been assessed and assigned to a roster group by the coaches in June.
Registration Night: Wednesday, April 25th, 7:00-8:30pm at Farmland ES
Come see our coaches, FINS Director Nick Kaufman, and all your OFST friends. We will not be having swimsuit fittings at Registration Night but our new team suit will be available at Cassel’s in Rockville. Details about ordering will be coming soon.
All swimmers must register in Team Unify regardless of whether or not you make it to registration night. Please use this link to complete your registration.
Due to the unexpectedly large number of swimmers this year on the Old Farm Swim Team, our coaches will be using 5 lanes of the pool between 5:30 and 6:15 pm (45 minutes) each weekday evening until the end of the MCPS school year, which is June 16. Note that 15 of those 45 minutes occur during adult swim. After June 16, the team will begin holding additional morning practices, so we expect a normal afternoon usage pattern will develop at that time. We regret any inconvenience, and we will explore alternative arrangements for next year to avoid this arrangement. Thank you.
Looking for a few teen Volunteers to help make the Fourth of July party great!
We would like to gather a group of teens together to organize and execute some activities for the Fourth of July party at Old Farm. We will have 6 to 8 games and crafts depending on the number of volunteers. We would like 4 Leaders and 8 Participants. The commitment for Leaders is 4-5 hours (2 hours ON the FOURTH of JULY plus 2 hours AHEAD of time to plan and gather materials). The commitment for Participants is 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Participants will run the activity, game or craft. All volunteers will get SSL hours for their help. Please help make the Fourth of July party a great one!

This Monday we will have our annual “meet and greet” with the coaches. We will gather on the basketball court at 5pm to discuss some important swim team news and introduce the new and returning coaches. We ask EVERYONE to come, both swimmers and parents, to catch up with summer friends and say a quick hi to the coaching squad. Here you can ask coaches and team reps any questions you may have. The meeting will take no more than 10 minutes and we would love everyone to join us!
