UPDATED INFO 1/10/19:

WooHoo! PCY Winter Invitational  

starts FRIYAY smiley!!

 

The meet is big…. BIG…Lots of athletes. In fact, there will be 1266 swimmers, 22 Teams, and over 100 coaches so over 369 relays and 7326 individual swims. This will be one of the largest age group meet in the country.

 

So, obviously the deck space and team areas will be limited. Our team will need to be sharing area and courtesy to other teams.

SPY Coaches and Meet Management request that swimmers to limit the paraphernalia that they bring. Of course, your swimmer’s items, suits, towels, bags, etc. should be Marked Up with their NAME!

Your swimmer will not have the space to set up camp aka spreading out sleeping bags, blankets, or towels for deck

Spectators in bleachers, please make new friends and space for all.

 

Time between Sessions

The pool deck opens 15 minutes prior to all session warm ups.

The time between morning and afternoon is precious and tight; so, please do not come early for the afternoon sessions than needed.

The time between sessions is needed by Miami Staff and Meet Management to prepare for the next session.

Miami University does a very good job of cleaning between sessions; yet, our team needs to make sure that we pick up after ourselves all the time. Our team takes great pride in leaving our area clean at the end of each session. 

 

BIG Reminder of Meet Format Again

Friday & Morning Sessions will swim in two pools, so swimmers in ODD Heats will participate in pool near the Balcony Stands and swimmers in EVEN Heats will participate in pool near the Display Scoreboard.

if you are not familiar with this concept, just be assured that this format is the best way to assure that both pools end together.

 

Please review it with your swimmer and make a note for yourself, so you actually watch your 11 & Older athlete: 

  • ODD HEATS swim in the balcony pool 
  • EVEN HEATS swim in the scoreboard pool.

 

ALERT: NOTE CHANGE  to the Afternoon Aessions

Relays will be the FIRST EVENTSnot last - heat sheets will indicate that.

Reminder: 

  • 8 & Unders will swim in the Balcony Pool
  • 9-10's will swim in Scoreboard Pool

 Plus, some 9-10 events at the end of each session will be moved to the 8 & under pool - this helps balance the timelines for the pools.
