 Coaches and Team Representatives,

I would like to thank everyone for attending this year’s Bluefish-Williston Specialty Meet w/Distance Event.  We are very excited to host everyone and are looking forward to a great weekend of racing.  I have attached the following information to this email:  Warm-up Assignments, Psych Sheet, and Timelines.

The facility will open Friday at 3:45 and each morning at 6:45am.  No Swimmers will be allowed to enter the pool area before then.  Swimmers may bring chairs however deck seating will be provided. 

The meet will be run in 5 lanes of competition during the Morning and all Distance Sessions.  The 6th lane will be used as continuous warm-up warm-down.  Swimmers will not be permitted to just sit in the water, they must be actively swimming.  Coaches please help police this.  The Afternoon (9-12 year old sessions) will run in 6 Lanes.

Coaches if you know of advanced scratches to the distance sessions, please email those before Friday.  The Saturday and Sunday Distance sessions look to run right up to the afternoon warmup times, afternoon warmup will be delayed to after the completion of Distance and will then start after a 5 minute break.  Warm-ups will not be shortened.

Some of the warm-up and session start times have been adjusted after receiving final entries please note the below schedule and communicate with your team:

Metro Swim Shop will be at the meet this weekend for all of your swimsuit and meet needs.

Families please remember that we are guests in the Smith College facility, please respect their facility rules and regulations and please clean-up after yourselves.  Coaches are responsible to keep their team area tidy and clean after sessions.  Deck chairs are allowed, but additional seating will be provided on deck for the athletes.  All swimmers will be required to have on shirts/jackets and something on their feet when exiting the pool area, please have your families ready for this, and have your athletes be respectful to marshals who may ask them to return to the deck to get appropriately dressed before entering the building from the pool or locker rooms.

There will be parking attendants through-out the weekend to help direct parents to overflow lot areas as the pool lot is limited and will fill-up.

We are looking forward to a great weekend of racing!

Thank You,

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
