(HOME) SWIMMER & VOLUNTEER Check In VS Green Acres
(this is a team hosted event)
All swim meets will have an invite and a RSVP requirement.
Parents & Caretakers...please take the time to ensure YOU & your swimmer can attend the Meet!
ALL meets include a volunteer RSVP "request” to ensure a positive meet environment. As they say "it takes the village" to create a successful meet, and we are pretty sure we can do this having a fun lightning spirit.
We appreciate volunteering can be stressful, especially when you are completing a full day of work. We ONLY have 7 meets, we are confident we can recruit friendly volunteers who can share a smile, encourage laughter and create some joy with the entire team. Please take time to consider and know our Lane Community will greatly appreciate it all!
Athlete Participation In Swim Meets Description:
All Swim Meets (HOME or AWAY) require an athlete RSVP & Positive Check In
Coaches knowing the swimmer’s availability ahead of time
allows for grateful coaches to prepare a successful meet line-up.
We created this policy last year, and found it made a huge
difference in reducing the stress.
Please know while you will be completing a meet schedule
confirmation ahead of time, you will be able to change all the way
up to the deadline of the "Swim Meet Positive Check In".
Positive CHECK in
for AWAY & HOME meets is 4:45 p.m.
• We will have
designated team areas for each meet.
• Upon arrival to the meet the 1st priority
is to complete a positive check in.
• Ages 10 and younger must find the
volunteer line up parent, ages 11 & up must check in with the
Definition of a positive
check for swim meets - the check in creates the
guarantee of your arrival. As a NBSL rule COACHES MUST have
line ups to the scorers desk by 5 p.m. If you are NOT there
on time, it means we will have to scratch your swimmer from the
meet, with NO guarantee we can re-enter after the deadline.
If for any reason, you get stuck...CALL someone. PLEASE know
we are working on the NBSL rules not a Lane policy. So, as a
suggestion, Get a parent buddy you can text, or if all else fails
CALL the pool who is hosting the meet.
Cheers to FUN summer swimming....Swimming FAST is a Lightning Tradition!
