SMI is the largest outdoor swim meet in the United States and gets bigger every year! SMI is held on Saturday and Sunday. Swimmers eleven years and up swim on Saturday. Swimmers ten and younger swim on Sunday. SMI does not allow participation by year round swimmers who have swum in a USS swim meet in the past year.
Remember to sign your swimmer up for the meet. Click on the Swim Meets tab under Events which can be found at the bottom right hand corner of the home screen on this website. Then click on the Add/Decline Button. You will then be asked to sign into Team Unify. Enter your username and password. You will click on your swimmers name to enter them into the meet. Then click on either- Yes, or No Thanks. Select the day/session your swimmer will be able to attend. Be sure to click on the Save Changes button before you close out of the screen. You will see that your swimmer's commitment has changed to committed and active.
After you sign-up your swimmer, click on Job Sign-up to volunteer at the meet. We will need everyone to volunteer at SMI. Remember, this is our team fundraiser. It will take "all hands on deck" to make SMI a success. Your team and swimmers are counting on you!
