Senior News - Senior Spring Invitational Information

 

I think we are finally organized and all set for the 2018 Senior Spring Invitational at Wesleyan this upcoming weekend.  This will be our 28TH year hosting this event and we are fortunate to have a loyal group of teams that attend the meet.  The meet is a bit smaller due to the extreme winter that many of the school systems in Massachusetts are running school on Saturday to make up for lost days. 

 

The proceeds for this meet are split amongst the Parents Club budget and Y Nationals.  This meet has been a great support to the many swimmers over the years that have represented the Water Rats at the spring YMCA Nationals.   PARENTS, WE NEED YOU TO HELP WITH TIMING.   It is imperative if your child is in a session, that you time at that session.  Especially for those whose children drive, you may need to go in two cars.  The need for your help is critical.

 

A few notes regarding the sessions:

Ø    Friday:  Swimmers are to provide own timer and lap counter for the 1500.

Ø    Saturday AM: Approx. 3.5 

Ø    Saturday PM: Swimmers are to provide own timer for the 400m Freestyle.

o     Prior to the start of the 400 Freestyles, the session is less than 2 hours.  Easy session to time.

Ø    Sunday AM: Swimmers are to provide own timer for the 400m IM.  

o     Prior to the start of the 400 IM’s, the session is at 2 hours.

o      

Seeing the above, timing at this meet is not a hardship to work.  Please step up and help the team. We have a number of volunteers that will be working all four sessions as well as a few alum parents.
