NOTES FOR FIRST-MEET SWIMMERS:

  • Come prepared! Bring an extra towel, cap, and pair of goggles and healthy snacks!
  • Bring warm clothing! We want our swimmers in clothing after they dry off from their races to help them stay warm between races.
  • Look for EDGE coaches and the EDGE team banner upon arrival. This is where swimmers will hang out to cheer and rest between races. This is very important. It makes athletes easy to find for coaches to insure swimmers are behind the blocks and ready to race on time.
    • Swimmers may make brief visits to the spectator stands to see their parents. Swimmers must do so after informing or asking a coach first.
  • Parents: you are NOT allowed on the pool deck during the meet unless you are volunteering as a timer or an official!
