1.  Due to limited availability of Officials for the Sunday 9-10 sessions, we have combined the session into one course. I have attached an updated timeline to share with your participating families. The change does have the meet concluding at approximately 7 pm. 
2.  Saturday Finals have been shifted to begin at 6:00 pm. Warm-ups will be held 5:00-5:50 pm. 
3.  While we have most of the timer slots already filled, we still need a few timers for each of the sessions. Please encourage parents that have not already volunteered to sign up for a session. Timer Sign Up. We will also need timers from those teams that have swimmers that are in the Finals sessions on Friday and Saturday evening.
4.  A reminder swimmers entered in the 500, 1000, and/or 1650 free must provide their own timer and counter. 

5.  From the Oak Marr staff: NO SWIMMER DROP OFF in front of the main entrance. 



1. We are still in need of Officials and Timers for each of the sessions. A quick shout-out to MAKO who already has lots of timers on the list!!

2.  A few facility notes that the Oak Marr staff requested that I share:
  • Please remind parents that swimmer drop-off is NOT permitted in the fire lane directly in front of the main doors. Swimmer can be dropped off by the mini golf course and not need to cross a street. 
  • The lower parking lot by the soccer fields should be available (no other sports are scheduled). 
  • Meet t-shirts and programs will be available for purchase in the lobby. Shirts are $20 and programs are $5. 
  • Oak Marr will also have concessions available for swimmers and parents. A sample of the options include Rita's Water Ice, Smoothies, subs, pizza, and other snacks and drinks. 
3.  PVS will be holding officials clinics on Saturday during the morning session for Starters and Stroke & Turns. This is great opportunity to have interested parents attend their training session. 


This is one of the most fun meets of the year and as such, is very popular. We always take a large group to this meet, and as explained below by the Meet Director, entries are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Therefore, we will be sending in our entries on October 18 (the day they open), to be sure all of our interested swimmers are entered.
