We are here! Northland Conference Champioinship Finals. Thank you all for putting up with all these long emails! So much info you need. What a fabulous season leading up to this! Such great and exciting swims over the last two days. So pround of our team! -Kris Roberts
Warm ups tonight are at 4:45.. Please be there by 4:30 and check in with a coach.
IMPORTANT CHECK IN INFO-Please see below. And if for any reason your swimmer cannot attend, PLEASE TEXT ME IMMEDIATELY at (816)786-3921. And if you have any questions at all, please text me. Even if your swimmer does an event and then gets sick. If we don't scratch in a timely manner our team gets penalized and loses points. Please see below the rule I copied and pasted from Championships
Check-in, Scratch: Swimmers are considered checked-in for their events when they submit their entries for the meet. If a swimmer elects not to swim an event in which he/she is entered, the swimmer, his/her coach, or representative should scratch the event thirty (30) minutes prior to the beginning of a night's events. In prelims, there is no penalty for missing an event. In finals, an event is closed once swimmers have been released from the clerk of the course to the blocks. Any swimmer who qualifies for finals and fails to appear will be removed from the meet, will not be awarded a medal, will not earn points for his/her team for that event, and will be disqualified for the remainder of the meet. A swimmer who qualifies for consolation or finals and is scratched by his/her coach thirty (30) minutes prior to the start of the session shall not be awarded a medal or earn points for his/her team in that event, but shall not be further penalized.
