Swim Meet Vs Brookside (Home)
(this is a team hosted event)
This is our first HOME meet of the season. The pool is located in Splashdown Waterpark located within Ben Lomond Regional Park, 7500 Ben Lomond Park Road, Manassas, VA. There is parking at the end of the lot near gate 7, but do not park in reserved spaces. Please make sure you lock your vehicle and stow your valuables out of site.
All swimmers should Declare their intention to swim using the “Edit Commitment" button for each meet. This button will take you to another page where you must click on the swimmer’s underlined name. The next page will allow you to select “Yes, please sign [swimmer] up for this event” if you will attend and participate in the swim meet, or “No, thanks [swimmer] will NOT attend this event.” There is space if you want to leave a note to the coach. Select the checkbox for “Day1/Session 1” and select the “Save changes” button at lower right of page. Swimmers should declare by 8:00 PM on Tuesday, June 18.
It is important to register/DECLARE, Yes or NO, by Tuesday 8 PM, so coaches can get all committed swimmers into events and relay assignments. We need you to be on time so that swimmers can warm up and then be ready for the relays.
The swim meet cannot operate smoothly without volunteers. Volunteers can sign up for the many slots by selecting the “Job Signup” button. This will take you to a page that has all volunteer positions listed alphabetically. Some positions may already have a name in the slot. Select the checkbox next to the jobs you will work. Remember to consider setting up on Friday night and cleaning up after the meet. Then select the “Signup" button. You will be prompted to add a name if there are more than 1 volunteer in the family. Then select the “Save changes” button. Volunteers should sign up by 8:00 PM on Thursday, June 23. Swimmers and volunteers should check in with volunteer coordinators (Mika Mattingly or Yasmine Sosa) upon arrival and return badges before they depart.
