(this is a team hosted event)
Time trials is a practice meet for all of Edgebrook swimmers and parent volunteers! It is an opportunity for new swimmers to learn how a meet is run, for parents to try out new volunteer jobs, and for the rest of us to shake off the dust of the winter months and be reminded how a summer league meet is run.
It is also a fun night where kids can get to know their teammates and have some pizza between races! If you are able to make it, we encourage everyone to attend!
Important Information about Time Trials:
Arrival Time: Plan to arrive by 4:00 p.m. Parking will be crazy so you will want to leave yourself enough time to find a [legal] spot. It's a bit of a guess based upon any number of variables, but you can expect that the meet will last until 8:30-9:00 p.m.
Warm-ups: Because this is an ALL ORCAS meet (no "away team") we will warm-up in three groups which is a bit different than a regular dual meet when home team warm-ups are first, followed by our Little Orca pre-meet, followed by the away team warm-ups. Please have your swimmer ready to go with clothing off and caps/goggles on 5 minutes before their age group time.
4:30-4:45 8&unders, 4:45-5:00 9-12s, 5:00-5:15 13&overs
Events: Freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke in that order. Each age group will swim freestyle, then backstroke, then breaststroke. *The Little Orcas will be swimming with the 8&unders.* Each swimmer will pick up a "Heat Sheet" slip showing their personal meet entries. Parent volunteers hand these out at every meet (home or away) by the A-frame Orca Sign. This also serves as the way for coaches to check attendance - unclaimed slips indicate no show swimmers. You don't want to be one of those! This is one reason why the online meet sign outs are so important!
Food: Pizza meals including a slice of Costco pizza, Caesar salad, drink, and ice cream bar are free to Orca swimmers. Additional meals available for purchase for $6 as well as a la carte items. Ice cream bars and hot chocolate will be available for purchase later in the evening. There will be no traditional concessions and no "snack shack" so pack any other snacks for your kids and yourself.
Logo Wear: Pre-ordered t-shirts, sweatshirts, or sweats will be distributed from the conference room from 4:00-7:00 p.m. This is the only time to pick up your order, so if you can't be there yourself (or even just drive by) then you need to make arrangements for someone else to pick up your order for you.
