A couple reminders for tomorrow…
In order for the meet to start on time and run smoothly, we need all
swimmers to check in by their designated times. Swimmers not checked
in by 7:00 risk being scratched (removed from the meet). If you are coming
but running late, you should call Sophia at (916) 213-8559
Swimmers 13-18- Check in by 6:45
Swimmers 4-12- Check in by 7:00
Volunteers for all shifts should check with the volunteer coordinator Erin
Seymour upon arrival. She will most likely be stationed near the coaches
check in area. Just look for a Blue and Yellow striped hat. We need
volunteers to make the meet run smoothly and efficiently. It is our hope
that the meet will runs faster than expected. If this happens, we would
like to switch shifts earlier than the times on the sign up sheets (after the
conclusion of backstroke). Please let Erin know when you check in if you
will be available to do that.

Timer and Stroke and Turn Meetings
Prior to the start of the meet, we will hold a timer meeting and also a stroke
and turn meeting. This meeting is for BOTH shifts of timers. Please listen
for the announcement for a briefing on what to do.
Ready Bench and Spectator Area
This season, we will not have age Group parents but will use a two ready
benches. Your swimmers will be briefed in the morning. There will be a
ready bench outside the pool deck and one inside. They should be masked
and you may accompany your swimmer until they move to the ready
benches on the pool deck. As they move to the ready benches on the
pool deck, they will no longer need to be masked. If you wish, you may
watch your swimmers race from the spectator area. All adults must wear
a mask near the ready benches and in the spectator area. We ask that you
are only on deck during the time needed to watch your swimmer’s race and
meet up with them after the race. Please exit the pool deck using the gate
you usually use during practice.
We will be selling our Marlins Teamwear in the area designated on the
map. We are hoping to be able to take cash, check, or charge. Team
store will open once set up until between 10-11.
You may set up anywhere outside the fenced area of the pool deck. We
ask that you do NOT set up tents directly against the fence behind the
starter blocks as we would like to have that area open for families who
would like to view the start of the race. We also plan to have information
Please keep in mind that we will not be serving food during meet so make
sure you bring plenty of food, water, and sunscreen.
We still have a handful of families that have not turned in their Swimmer
information form and/or volunteer deposit. If you are one of these families,
tomorrow will be the perfect time to bring it.
