This year all of our 8U and 10U swimmers can participate in our “Mini-Meet”. We’ll schedule you in 3-4 events, unless you tell us that you are not attending. Please arrive at the pool for warm up by 5:30pm. We use this meet to help everyone get organized for the season, including all of our coaches, swimmers, and volunteers. Remember to sign up for a job to help the meet run smoothly!

Our first full dual meet of the season is this Thursday at Blue Ridge. Please arrive by 5:00 to check in. Our warm up will begin at 5:25. Remember to bring extra towels and warm clothes. When the sun goes down it does get chilly!
8U participation list for the Blue Ridge meet is available here. Let me know if we need to switch which meets your 8U swimmer is scheduled for.
Meet Check In
Once you arrive at a meet (home or away) please find your age group list and check off that you are here. If you are a younger swimmer, find your age-group parent and have them help you write down your events. As soon as warm-up is over, check back in and get ready for your first event. If it is a relay, find your teammates and stay together. If you can’t find someone, please let one of the coaches know.
Remember to check off which meets your child is missing on the swim team board near the pool office. You can also request early or late events for your swimmer.
Your coaches need at least 2-3 days notice so that lineups don’t have to be changed. If your plans change on the day of the meet, make sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org .

Team Unify (our website) is set up to send out reminders for each swim team event.

Help at Home Meets
It takes a village (or at least 60 people) to run a swim meet. We need you.
Log on to our website, click on the appropriate “event”, and choose from a variety of jobs, including timing, setting and cleaning up, helping with ribbons, and getting our kids to their races on time. You can also link to the job page through any email reminders that you receive.
