- Swimmers must practice social distancing while on deck (just like in practice)
Upon check-in, swimmers will be directed/assigned a designated space for their gear and to rest between events. If they are not swimming or lined up in their heat, this is where they should be. Swimmers will be called for warm-ups and for their heats. Swimmers must participate in the warm-ups to participate in the meet. Swimmers will race, exit the pool, and return to their designated space. Fun will be had amidst all this seriousness. In all seriousness, it will be fun.

Description of Volunteer Positions:
Lane Timer (6): Each timer will be assigned to a single lane. Timers will receive a stopwatch and a clipboard (or paper of some sort on which to record the times). Timers will start the watch with the starter signal (light or whistle) and stop the watch when the swimmer touches the wall at the end of their race. Timers will record their time in the designated place and get a back up time from their assigned head timer (which they will also record). This process will repeat about 18 times and then the meet will be finished.
Head Timer (3): The head timer will be assigned to a position on the side of the pool. Head timers will receive two stopwatches and will be responsible for timing two lanes. Head timers will start the watches with the starter signal (light or whistle) and stop the watches when the swimmers touch the wall at the end of their race.The head timer will report their times to the appropriate lane timer when they are ready to record the times. (Note: That's right, you are watching and timing two different swimmers in two different lanes. Please do not sign up for this position if you cannot walk and chew gum at the same time. No judgement, just want to make sure the swimmers get a fair time).
At the conclusion of the meet, we ask all the timers to assist in cleaning up the deck as needed. It's really not much, just one or two tents, pick up some trash if necessary, and return your watches. Thanks!
At this time, we are only allowing volunteers, coaches, and swimmers on deck during the meet. Thank you for understanding.
