SPORTSMANSHIP / FUN:
The two most important parts of our team! How do we have fun and display good sportsmanship? We have a few expectations of our swimmers:
- Say hello and make a new friend with someone you may not know from the visiting team
- Say "Good luck!" before your race and shake hands afterward
- After your race, grab a snack and/or water, and head to the pool deck to cheer! A positive, LOUD atmosphere can make swimmers feel extra excited for their races
- Stay until the very end so we can do a LOUD sportsmanship cheer to commend the excellent swims of our friends from the visiting team
AFTER THE MEET:
- There is a long-standing CVSL tradition where families gather at Al's French Fries after meets in the Greater Burlington area to bond in a classic diner setting with a creemee, meal or simply enjoying your friends' company! This is certainly not mandatory
- Please be mindful of the hard work our janitorial staff puts in each time we host a meet to keep the gymnasium, pool area, and pool water in the best condition for our members. Pick up any trash that you may see
- We know how exciting the basketball hoops and balls are, but the swimmers are NOT allowed to use them at ANY time, including arrival
- If you are in need of immediate help, ANY EDGE STAFF MEMBER IS AVAILABLE TO HELP: Front Desk, Lifeguards, Coaches and/or the Aquatics Director
