(this is a team hosted event)


WHEN: 2022 Time Trials will be held on Saturday, June 4th. Please arrive at the pool by 6:40 A.M.  Warm-ups will begin at 7:00 and the first event should go in the water at 7:30. Time Trials usually take about three hours. This is for competitive swimmers only, not Mini Dolphins.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Volunteers are needed in the Clerk of Course area and for Timing and Recording. If you can help, please go to the online Volunteer sign-up and indicate where you will be volunteering. If you are new to the team and worried about volunteering, don't be! Time Trials is a great place to get your feet wet and learn the ropes. There will be plenty of old-school folks to show you the way and lend a hand.  It takes a village to pull of a swim meet!

Entries will be posted below.  Also available will be the Meet Program and a Meet Timeline.  Please note that the Meet Timeline is an ESTIMATE.  As long as things go well, we shouldn't be there any longer than the posted end time. We won't have Meet Programs at the pool, so print your own.  Make sure to write down what your swimmer(s) are entered into and listen closely for them to be called to their event by the Clerk of Course.

Setup  begins at 8:00 the night before. Please arrive at 7:45. We will begin with unpacking the shed, and moving furniture. Lane lines need to go in the pool, backstroke flags set up, and the areas for different functions put together.   

What to Bring-Considering it is usually cool at the start of the season, make sure you pack plenty of towels and warm clothes for your swimmer to change into. It will warm up as the morning progresses, but expect it to be quite chilly first thing, especially during warm ups.  Also don't forget sunscreen. Our Parent Handbook has lots of information in it about how our swim meets run, what to do, how to prepare, and what to expect. Spend some time reading there if you have not yet.  Please make sure your swimmers are familiar with some important policies, including our  Locker room Privacy Policy and our  Body Paint Policy

Parking- **IMPORTANT** The City of Manassas has designated parts of Clover Hill road and Hendley as Bike Lanes. YOU CANNOT PARK IN A BIKE LANE-you risk an expensive ticket if you do so. ALSO, Wellington Townhome street parking is now restricted only to Wellington residents with a parking sticker. So do not park in any visitor spots on Townhome streets. You will be towed.

Arrival and Check in- Please arrive by 6:40 in the morning and have your swimmer(s) check in with the Coaches so they know you are in attendance.  Enter through the main gate near the Clubhouse and you should find the Coaches in this area to get you checked in.

Clerk of Course is in the Baby Pool area. When you hear the announcer calling for your event, make sure you go there right away to get checked in. It is important to know your event numbers and listen to be called. If you aren't there after last call, you will be scratched.

FOOD/Concessions we will NOT have Concessions at Time Trials. Please plan accordingly with snacks, water, etc.

If you need to leave the meet early, you MUST let your Coaches know. They will alert Clerk of Course and have your cards pulled for the remaining events.

Cleanup/Reset-As the end of the meet winds down, it is CRITICAL that all hands on deck help out with returning the pool to the way we found it so the Wellington Homeowners get their pool open on time.  We utilize a phased approach to tear down areas as they are no longer needed. Please make sure your area is clear of trash and help us wrap things up. ALL FAMILIES ARE EXPECTED TO CONTRIBUTE TO CLEANUP

Results-Results will be available on the website Saturday afternoon after the conclusion of the meet.
