Meet Planning:   We have asked the athletes several times leading up to this weekend’s meet to write out their warm-up / warm-down plans for each day.  The coaching staff will be very limited in monitoring the warm-up/warm-down pools, so the athletes must be prepared to take care of themselves in this situation.  We feel as a staff that particularly the 11&ups have a pretty good concept of how their bodies feel in the water and what they need to prepare and recover from their races.  The swimmers also have a pretty good idea what we, the coaching staff, would like them to do for those situations as well. We are not going to micro-manage the kids, but planning your schedule is a fantastic way to stay relaxed and focussed in a busy meet environment, and feel more confident about being race-ready.

Relay Entry: Attached you will find relay assignments.  The names of athletes attached are the fastest 4 combinations for our current roster.  Those lineups may be subject to change upon the coaches’ discretion of the fastest 4 lineups.

Nutrition:   We expect conditions in all pools to be on the hot and humid side, so please come prepared with water bottles (filled with water:) and snacks that can be consumed throughout the meet.  Please abstain from Processed sugars and Caffeinated beverages at all times. These items tend to enhance “crashing” in a racing situation, and are very costly throughout a long weekend of championship swimming.

Screens:  We will enforce confiscating of screens if the kids are clearly playing on their screens.  We understand certain levels of communication are necessary with parents who are transporting the athletes, and that some of the kids will want to listen to music to get amped for their races.  If we see the kids playing games or scrolling through social media, we will confiscate the phones :)

Swimwear: Southeastern Championships is a championship meet, where we intend on wearing the best possible suits in racing competition.   We encourage tech-suits in ALL preliminary and finals swims.
