General Notes for All Sessions

  • General Notes for All Sessions

  • If, for some reason, you are unable to make it, please email us at .  We will be fined $5 per swimmer per event for swimmers that we have entered and do not show up.  We have a deadline to "scratch" a swimmer of 30 minutes before the events start.  This will also affect the relay line ups as well.
  • There is very limited time and space for warm ups and starts, so please be on time
  • Have your swimmer bring 2 towels, a hoodie or sweats to stay warm in between events, drinks and snacks for the session.  Send some money if they would like to purchase any concessions.
  • Some swimmers also bring a blanket to sit on.  The kids will be marshalled in the cafeteria area.
  • Something to entertain them for the session.  Books, cards, music, etc.  Be aware that there might not always be an adult in our team area so be careful of any electronics that you might bring.  There will be many teams and kids in the marshalling area, so exercise caution with your expensive items.
  • Caps- We are encouraging all our swimmers to wear an YOSC cap. The coaches will have latex caps at the meet if you need one.  Caps from summer clubs ( FAST, Buhr Park, Chippewa, etc) or high school teams are not permitted.  Plain speedo caps are permitted but we would like to see our swimmers clearly on deck.
  • If you would like a silicone cap, the coaches will have some available Friday night at the banquet.  Silicone caps are $10 per cap and are easier on the swimmer's hair.  
  • Seating will be very crowded during all sessions.
  • The meet will be officiated by USA swimming officials.  They are observing USA rules for all strokes and turns.  Do not be alarmed if your swimmers get disqualified, or DQ.  This just means that your child is still learning to complete the stroke legally. This is very common in the breaststroke  events, and at the younger ages.  Turns for both butterfly and breaststroke need to be a two hand touch on the wall otherwise it will be a DQ.
  • Do not leave the meet until you have checked with a coach to ensure that your swimmer has completed all their events.
