FIRST MEET THIS SUNDAY!!
Wavemakers we have our first meet this weekend! Sunday October 6th
at Principia College in Elsah IL! Which also means
NO PRACTICE SUNDAY.
I am so excited and proud to say that we have 44 swimmers attending the meet and that is AMAZING! We have many new swimmersand a solid group of returning swimmers. Thank you to everyone that signed up! If you aren't sure what events your swimmer is entered in you can check the event on Team Unify.
So here is all the information I can give you and tell you about approaching this meet:
There will be NO ATM at the venue. Please bring cash for concessions
TCAY will have limited heat sheets! They will use Meet Mobile (mobile app) and post a heat sheet on their website. I will do my best to send it out to you when I have it but I do not know when that will be. Hopefully tomorrow night. Otherwise you can look on the TCAY Tidalwaves TU page.
Personalized caps will not be in for the meet. We do have WCFY caps at the front desk for purchase but I will also have a limited amount with me at the meet.
Parents, families and other cheerleaders coming on Sunday please wear your Wavemaker gear or team colors to cheer your swimmers and team on! (Purple/Black/Gray)
