Email update from Carmel Swim Club (1/8/2018):


Thank you for bringing your teams to the CSC Winter Invitational January 12th-14th at the IUPUI Natatorium. We look forward to hosting you, your swimmers, and their families. This email will provide information that we hope is helpful to you. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to reply to this message. We understand there is a lot of information, so please bear with us as we try to keep you well informed.

Event limits
In order to maintain a manageable timeline, we have had to limit two events on Friday evening:
  • #10 Boys 11-12 500 Free
  • #11 Girls 13-14 500 Free
We have attached the psych sheet for these two events with event limits marked. We tried to maximize the number of swimmers while meeting a 9 p.m. ending time. In case any of your swimmers are affected by limits to events, we will issue a refund of entry fees.
In both of the events that are limited, only a few swimmers are below the line. We feel that with scratches at positive check-in, there is a possibility that all swimmers in those events will have the opportunity to swim. 
If you find out any swimmers need to scratch events, especially on Friday evening, please let us know! It is our goal to notify coaches if swimmers below the line move up and have the chance to swim. 

Please see the attached Coaches Letter for general meet information on the time line, scratch deadlines and positive check in information for the weekend. No changes have been made to the timeline as posted in the Meet Letter.

Warm up lane assignments are attached to this email. They will also be included in the coaches packet which you can pick up at the Clerk of Course table upon arrival at the pool.

Parking info- The Event Rate will be $7 credit card only.  The Sports Garage attached to the Natatorium (Center Section-2nd and 3rd entrances) will be used for the meet.  The Riverwalk Garage will not be used for this event.  If anyone parks at the Riverwalk Garage-hourly rates will apply.  Anyone paying the event rate of $7 at the Sports Garage will be issued an event ticket for in and out privileges.  The ticket will only work at the Sports Garage center section. 


If at any point you need to contact us, please text or call us!! Our cell phone numbers are listed below.


Travel safely!

Email update from Carmel Swim Club (12/12/2017):

We would like to welcome you and your swimmers to the Carmel Swim Club Winter Invite presented by Speedo that will take place January 12-14 at the IU Natatorium, located on the campus of IUPUI. We have accepted all teams that submitted entries by the deadline. Attached you will find a copy of your meet entry report. Please check this report for any errors.
At this time, the meet is almost to capacity and we will have to determine on a case-by-case basis if additional swimmers can be added. Please contact me directly if you would like to add athletes. Scratches and time updates are accepted until 6:00 p.m. on Friday, January 5.
In order to keep to a manageable timeline, we are going to have to limit the number of heats in some events that occur Friday evening. There will be refunds for any limited event. Limits will be emailed to you and posted on the Carmel Swim Club website on Tuesday, January 9.
We are glad you will be joining us! If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Meet entry chair


This meet is WEST Winter Travel Meet for the WEST High School Girls Squad!  However, ALL qualifying WEST swimmers (meaning also all 8th Graders and Below) are encouraged to attend.  You can't beat a post-Christmas Training meet at the historic and newly renovated IUPUI Natatorium.  The competition is also unparalled and some of the rookie 2016 Olympians were in the meet within the past 2 years.

Please see the Meet Packet to determine rules for the qualification times (page 2 of 10).  The 2017-2020 National Motivational Time Standards are posted on the website for reference.  Unlike most meets, the meet entry also allows COMMIT BY EVENT so it should be easier to determine if your swimmer is qualified.  Note that the final event entries are up to the Coaching Staff's discretion.

Swimmers choosing to travel with the WEST High School Girls Squad will be escorted and chaperoned by the coaching staff the entire duration of the trip unless prior permission is granted.  The travel packet, including the permission forms, rules and regulations, medical release, and the trip itinerary has been posted.  High school girls attending with the team shall return the applicable forms with deposit by Friday, December 15.  We are working on the arrangements/plan for the food logistics and will be provide that information to the swimmers traveling with the team after commitment is closed.  Most meals will be included, except for the ones during the travel to and from Indy.

For swimmers not qualified or not choosing to attend this meet, we will also be attending the 39th Annual Speedo PPD/COHO Winter Splash.  This meet has no qualifying times and is a Prelim-Final meet for the 12 and Unders.
