What to Bring To The Meet

Given the fact that this is an OUTDOOR meet, some of these items are a bit different from the normal list - please read this carefully.  A couple of things to keep in mind when packing a bag for meets. The kids should have the following:

  • EXTRA Suits/Caps/Goggles/Towel (Swim Essentials)
  • Healthy snacks to eat after warm up and races (fruits, protein/carb bar)
  • Fluids with Electrolytes (Smartwater, Gatorade, PowerAde)
  • Warm clothes (sweatshirts, sweatpants, socks and shoes to keep their feet warm) - It could be be chilly for the morning sessions.  Be prepared!
  • Deck chairs for both the swimmer and the spectators
  • A pop-up tent, if possible.  
  • SUNSCREEN!!!!  Protect your skin!
  • Rain gear (just in case!)
  • Please be sure to wear THY gear and a THY swim cap!!!

 

Locker Rooms:

As per PSU and MA policy, only swimmers are allowed in the indoor locker rooms including the hallway leading to those locker rooms, no parents or coaches will be permitted in these areas. There are bathrooms located in the area around the outdoor pool that are open for spectators.

 

Weather:

The weather forecast for the weekend is currently looking pretty good but should we encounter severe weather the PSU staff will let us know if we need to clear the pool. Should we experience lightning in the area, we will be required to move all spectators, swimmers, coaches and meet staff to the indoor facility, where we will wait a determined amount of time before re-starting the meet. Please be prepared to take essential personal items with you in the event that we need to evacuate the outdoor area as re-entry will not be permitted until it is safe to do so to be determined by the PSU staff.

 

Tents and Designated Areas:

Feel free to bring tents to set up in the grass areas. As per MA policy, the spectator and the swimmer/coach/team areas must be separate. Spectators will be allowed to set up in the grass area to the right of the entry gate, swimmers and coaches will set up to the left of the entry gate. Please abide by this separation policy. At the end of the afternoon sessions, or if we need to move indoors due to weather, please lower your tents as low as possible. 

 

Concessions:

There will be no concession stand available during this meet. Please feel free to bring food and drinks for your swimmers. The Berkey Creamery will be open and is a short walk from the pool.
