MEET DAY TIPS
What time do I need to be there?
Meet Warm Ups occur at different times for the various age groups.
What should the swimmer wear?
Wear your team swim suit, bring a towel or two, flip flops and appropriate outerwear based on the weather. Don’t forget sunscreen and/or hat.
What should I bring for food and water?
Who can attend the swim meet?
Family members and friends are welcome to attend the swim meets at no cost. The pool facility will be very full with swimmers, coaches, meet officials, volunteers, and spectators.
Where do swimmers and families congregate?
For home meets many swimmers and families bring camp or beach chairs and blankets to fill up the grass space inside the pool fencing. There are team E-Z ups because it can be very sunny.
How can I volunteer to work or contribute to a swim meet?
Where do I go the day of the meet for volunteering?
Just before your designated time, check in with the Volunteer Coordinator so they can note your presence for points and direct you to your post.
Where can I watch my swimmer?
For home meets, families are allowed inside the pool fencing on meet days. And you are encouraged to stand at the pool, the side opposite the starting blocks, and cheer on your swimmer for their race. Please be respectful of other spectators and be a positive audience member for all swimmers!
How long does the swim meet last?
The home meets start at 8:00 am and typically wrap up between noon and 1 pm. No swimmer should leave the meet without first checking in with a coach.
How can I see what races my swimmer is participating in for the meet?
The meet entries per swimmer will be posted on the wall opposite the lifeguard room inside the pool house. It is recommended parents bring a Sharpie to write the race numbers on their swimmer’s hand/arm.
