Please come to Fair Oaks! We are a small, summer rec team with BIG heart. We are currently in a division that is way too fast for our little team and are waiting for our league conferences to be re-organized. We had our champs last weekend and were more than 300 points behind fourth place to come in last. Our little team (185 swimmers) cheered harder for ourselves for being last than the fourth place team cheered for themselves for beating us. We also cheered harder for the fourth place team than they did for themselves. We rocked the Spirit Parade as we dressed up in our tie-dye shirts (team tie dye night was the Monday before Champs), red, white and blue accessories and used our air horns! Our swimmers are of all abilities, little ones (age 3) that take two minutes to cross the pool to one little girl who swims so fast she should be nationally ranked but chooses to stay with her beloved Fair Oaks Dolphins. Our swim team is more than a team.
It was an amazing experience to be able to give back to our swimming community and thanks to SwimOutlet.com we were able to make a big splash with a unique delivery to the Metroplex swim team in Allen, TX. I enjoyed every moment and I am looking forward to our next stop, I'm sure we will turn heads once again!
I hereby nominate for a Golden Delivery the Philipps Swim Club Team, 5245 Glenway Avenue; Cincinnati, OH, 45238. 513-404-6912. This 500,000 gallon, historic pool was built in 1929 (despite the Great Depression!) and has been the beloved summer home of generations of west side Cincinnatians. The recent troubled economy almost forced the pool to close this summer, but an extraordinarily dedicated group of men and women banded together this spring, formed a non-profit 501-c-7 organization, and have donated literally HUNDREDS of hours of volunteer time, talent, and expertise, to help save this treasured community resource. It's a grand tale of neighbors banding together and working hard, maintaining beloved pool traditions and fun times for all ages, and, yes, building yet another winning Swim Team! More on the pool at www.philippsswimclub.com ... Board President: Jeff Scholl; Pool manager: Steve Baker. Thank you
Yes, please consider this pool in the MidWest. It represents more than our love of swimming..it is a golden example of how a group of volunteers can save a beloved recreational facility for the benefit of an imperiled neighborhood. One of our members, Herta, who swam here in 1929 will celebrate her 90th birthday this Saturday with us..AND she is still swimming!
Wouldn't you like to make a delivery to Suriname??? We have 4 teams here on our small, tropical island : De Dolfijn, VOS, Neptunus and the witte lotus . Our swimmers would really appreciate a visit from you or website is www.de dolfijn.com

FAST has been undergoing a challenging period whereby our home pool has been under renovation since February / March 2011. Our team has been split up and are practicing at different temporary locations until the renovations are completed, which actually was supposed have occurred by the end of April. Many of our swimmers have been limited to Short Course practice pools throughout the long course season. Needless to say, it's been challenging for the individual swimmers and the team as a whole. However, saying that, FAST as a whole has shown and continues to show remarkable persistence, patience, and character. It would be so wonderful if Team Gold were to boost the team's spirit and morale with a motivating visit . . . We're hoping to be back in the home pool (Wilkerson-Greines, Fort Worth) by the first of September, but nothing is certain . . . Thanks for your time and consideration. And, THANK YOU for all you do for all the young swimmers by being fabulous role models and exude such positive spirits
Team Gold is a great idea to generate team spirit! For those of us with smaller teams, have you ever thought of a delivery at a league championships? That way you could positively influence a greater number of younger age-group swimmers. Think about it, please.
Howdy from the great state of Texas where I see Team Gold has already been. How awesome. I have put my daughter's synchronized swimming team in for consideration for a very great reason. She is constantly defending that it is a sport to all her friends who don't do synchro. Anyone who has ever tried to do what those girls do know how difficult it is. I compare it to running a 50 yard dash without taking a breath. Go TEAM USA in all the aquatic sports.
Wow, how fun for the kids and the American Team swimmers. Thanks Swim Outlet for sponsoring this. Our team is from a town of 2,000. We compete in an area summer swim club and OASTA (Ozark area swim team association) is our govering body. Ther Hurricanes or undefeated 9 years in a row and we compete against 10 other teams of various sizes. We swim in 4 lanes of a very old outdoor pool. We don't charge the kids to join, because we live in a town of simple means. We do a big car wash to raise the money for the team suits. Other teams have indoor facilities and swim all year, but we don't and still win by hundreds of points each meet. I'm so proud of our kids and coaches... they so deserve to be honored for their hard work and dedication. We'd love to see you in Mountain View, Missouri. Go HURRICANES!!!
I wanted to thank SwimOutlet for putting on a wonderful event for our swim team. This is something our swimmers and families will never forget. Having Olympic swimmers come to our pool and interact with our kids has added a spark to their love of swimming. We are very lucky to have a great relationship with a wonderful company!! Thank you SwimOutlet for all you do.
I love being a part of TEAM GOLD! Our delivery in Dallas was a lot of fun and it's great to meet future National Team members! Be on the lookout for our next TEAM GOLD appearance. Your team could be next! I can't wait! Go TEAM GOLD!!!
Thanks to Swim Outlet and the Gold team. It was a great experience for the kids and the parents that were there too! Our daughter was so excited to get to meet some of the guys her brother has had the chance to race on a couple of occassions at some of the SR national, Grand Prix, and Senior Circuit meets. The video was awesome. Thanks again Gold Team for coming to Allen, TX!
AWESOME VIDEO!!! I had SOOO much fun that Saturday!! THANKS for EVERYTHING!! THANKS SO MUCH!! Metroplex Aquatics is a great team, and YOU GUYS...your the BEST TEAM!!Thanks Swim Outlet and the GOLD TEAM!!! You ROCK!!
A big Texas thank you to SwimOutlet and Team Gold for such an awesome special delivery!! The energy and enthusiasm displayed by these talented Olympic athletes was such a fine example of what lead them to rise to the top of their sport....thanks so much for inspiring our swimmers to be all that they can be! Y'all are the best :) Please come back to visit anytime!
That was an awesome video! If you want to make an impact on swimming in PA our swim team is small compared to who you visited in TX. It would show the swim community around here what an impact swimming is.
There aren't enough ways to say THANK YOU !!! If you can remember your life pre-Gold Medalist....perhaps even before sectional cuts (LOL), and the excitement you may have experienced being in the "same water" as an Olympian, then perhaps you know just how GRATEFUL we are that TEAM GOLD gave of their time, energy, enthusiasm and encouragement (to mention but just a few) to our Metro Team!! SwimOutlet, you will continue to have all our business!!! We wish TEAM GOLD the BEST OF LUCK in China and beyond!!! One more thing... Ian, is there any way to get a picture of you throwing the Horns up? :o) Hook 'Em!!!!
Wouldn't you like to make a delivery to Aruba??? We have 3 teams here on our small, tropical island : Aruba Dolphins, the Orcas and Stingray Swimming. Our swimmers would really appreciate a visit from you!
Thanks so much to SwimOutlet and Team Gold. It was a huge surprise for my girls and they thought it was so cool. We really appreciate you doing this so that they could see that you're all just regular people with some amazing talent. It was great motivation for them to keep working hard.
The video is fantastic; I love the lead-in! Hope we get to do it again some day. Thank you!
Crocker, we couldn't have done that delivery without your superb handling of that truck and pallet. That was one heavy pallet! Anyway, new delivery vehicles are on the way for TEAM GOLD! There's a V10 in one of them. ;) Stewart, when are you flying back to headquarters? Looks like we have more deliveries to make!
