Time Trials/Parent Meeting
Please arrive at the pool at 7:45am. We will have a Parent Meeting starting at 8:00. Time trials will begin at 9:00. Please arrive no later than 7:45 in order for your swimmer(s) to check in, meet with the team/coaches and get warmed up.
Please make sure to bring all of the necessary equipment such as goggles, swim cap, towel, sunscreen, water, warm clothing etc. (label everything and remind your child to keep all of their belongings in their pool bag when not in use!) Time trials are important for getting both the swimmers and the parents "trained" and ready for the first meet. This is a WAVES only meet and is very low key. We want the children (and parents!!) to be relaxed and to have fun. Concessions will be sold. Place ribbons and heat ribbons are not awarded at Time Trials. The swimmers will be timed to get unofficial times for their events so the coaches will know how to place them in future meets.
Since time trials is a practice meet, it is really important for parents to practice too! All jobs are easy to learn so do not be afraid to try and help out. Mistakes will be made and this is OK--all jobs have some form of backup or cross check. For parents who have been on the team in the past, please try something new. Every job at a home meet is located in a place where you will be able to see your child swim. Time trials usually last approx. 3 hours. At the finish, please help to break down the equipment and help set the deck back up for the regular opening time of the facility.
