Notes

  • Meet Entry Process
    • The recent Otters meet had a last minute schedule change that provided some extra challenges with entries and caused some unwanted billing complications (i.e., swimmers having events on days they originally requested not to attend). 
    • For future reference, we ask that if anyone has difficulty declining sessions or notices events on days they cannot attend to please contact their group coach immediately to be removed. 
    • We would also encourage swimmers to review entries a week out from the meet to double check nothing has changed.

If you have any comments or questions regarding what's written above please contact your group coach for more detail or set up a time to meet in person. 

Thank you,
