Hopefully everyone enjoyed the Blue and
gold meet as much as I did. It was great to
see all our swimmers racing again! I was very
proud of how everyone did, especially after
only three weeks of practice.
I want to say thank you to all the volunteers
who made the meet happen and an especially
big thanks to the volunteers who went
over and above by working shifts for the
entire meet. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU
We have opened the meets for Swimmer commitment
and Volunteer positions for the next 3 meets. Please
take time to let us know if your swimmer will be at
these meets. We need you to commit or decline by
the Monday prior to the meet. For example, for the
meet on June 5, the deadline to sign up your swimmer
is Monday May 31 at 9pm. This allows the coaches to
send our meet entries to the other team so they can
add theirs and prepare the meet files.
For volunteering, please sign up as early as possible
but the deadline is Thursday before the meet.
As we mentioned in a previous email, Blue is Gold
serves as a time trials and as a training meet. Now
that Blue and Gold is completed, the coaches and
the parent board will be reviewing volunteer
positions and swimmer results to make adjustments
for the next meet.
And speaking of results from Blue and Gold, they
are posted on the team website under the “2021 results”
tab. Just Click on Blue and Gold to view all
times for the entire meet. Results will be posted
on this tab after every meet. Our target is to post
by Sunday night but until we have out first
virtual meet, we do not know how long it will
take to combine the scores from both teams so
please be patient. I am including a link
below to explain how to read the results
Please note, if you see “DQ” instead of a
time, this means the swimmer was Disqualified (DQ’d).
For each stroke, there are different things that
result in a DQ. There will be a more detailed
email explaining this process sent in the next
few days. Please remember that DQ’s actually
serve as a tool to identify areas that need work.
coaches are reviewing the DQ’s and will be
working with the swimmers on fixing these.
There is two weeks before the next swim meet
so there is plenty of time to work on these.
