Registration Deadline - May 12, 2019

Time trials are coming up. Plan to attend as this is an important meet for several reasons. First, it establishes a baseline for your swimmer's times in each stroke. This baseline is used to seed swimmers into proper heats in subsequent meets. The baseline is also used to calculate "pop times", which we award to swimmers who have improved their times. If your child does not get an initial time, it may be several meets before they can establish a baseline. Due to limited heats of IM during our dual meets, time trials may be their only chance to swim this event.  

PLEASE NOTE:  All Parents must work this meet.

 

Meet information:

All swimmers need to check in at the large HOX flag on the pool deck by 8:30 AM (after warm ups - see below times under "Pre Meet Warm Ups").  Meet will begin around 9:15 AM (following the parade and National Anthem) and is due to run until 1:30 PM.

 

Pre-Meet Warm Ups:

 
AGE GROUP TIME

Set up:
Tents may be set up Saturday evening no sooner than 7:00 PM for this Sunday morning meet. It is suggested not to pop them up all the way due to high winds during the summer nights.  Please be sure to use your stakes to properly secure your tents into the ground (we have had tents blow away in years past).  PLEASE NOTE:  Do not use stakes greater than 8 inches, as they cause damage to the underground irrgation system.  No pop-up tents are allowed on the cement/pool deck or on "Mojito Hill" (hill next to the shallow end of the pool) as it is reserved for tents purchased by families as the HOX Auction.
 
The baby pool will be closed during meets.   Shallow end of pool is for 13 and up warm up and warm down only. If your swimmer is 12 or younger, please do not allow them into the shallow end of the pool.
 
Logistics/Parking
The Fitness Center is now open.  Please do not park in spaces allocated to the Fitness center.  Also, please do not stop or park in the red zones to unload vehicles, specifically do not stop or park at the curb next to or across from the back gateTHIS IS NOT AN UNLOADING ZONE as it blocks the flow of traffic and those trying to access the back gate by foot. 
 
There are reserved spaces for those families who purchased tents during our auction.  We ask that you do not stop, drop off or park in these areas unless they belong to you.  These reserved spaces are designated by a cone and/or sign.  If your reserved space is occupied, do not occupy another reserved space, instead please speak with one of the parking attendants.  In addition, there is over-flow parking at the park below the tennis courts as well as along the street leading up to the pool (See map below in documents section)
 
Team Parade
Don't forget to wear your HOX gear and be ready to cheer the team on as they make their grand entrance to the pool deck. Swimmers will head up to the bocce courts at 8:55 AM to gather for the parade and presentation of coaches. Please ensure there is plenty of room for the kids to come down the ramp and round the short block side of the pool. Parents should try and encircle the pool to cheer on the team. The best view will be from the short wall in front of Mojito Hill, by the shallow end.Signups for the Family Fun Relays will be by the announcer table throughout the meet. The relays will take place directly after Time Trials ends.
 

Hawk's Nest

The Hawk’s Nest will be open from 7:00 AM serving donuts, bagels, fruit and breakfast burritos - our usual swim meet spread. The no host BBQ buffet will be served from 11:00 AM.
