Friday Night at the Races
(this is a team hosted event)
We have three goals for these events: Team Building, Educating, and Racing.
While providing an opportunity for athletes to race in two events, we hope to provide an opportunity to educate parents (both new and returning) on how a swim meet is run and the different jobs that are needed in order to make swim meets run efficiently. It is our hope that we have enough parent support that we can allow the coaches to coach, the athletes to cheer & compete, and the parents to cheer AND run the meet. As for team building, allowing all of our athletes to compete together on deck and cheer for one another, we hope will begin to create bonds and friendships between athletes of different ages and training groups. There is no rule stating that parents who are volunteering can’t make new friends either!
Our goal is for the whole evening to be wrapped up by 6:30 p.m.
4:30 - 5:00 - WARM UP FOR SENIOR, PLATINUM GROUPS, & GOLD
5:00 - 5:25 - WARM UP FOR SILVER, BRONZE, & PRE-COMP
5:30 - 6:30 - ATHLETES COMPETE
