Please arrive at 9:45 AM for general warm-up. If you are only swimming the Medley relays, please arrive for the general warm-up. If you are ONLY swimming the Free relays, please arrive by 1:00 PM to warm up, then race at the end of finals.
If your swimmer is listed in a relay it is with the expectation that your swimmer will be at the meet. The team and three other teammates are counting on your swimmer. All the swimmers who are listed as relay only swimmers have not given me any indication to think they will not be there. If for whatever reason that is changed I MUST KNOW IMMEDIATELY! No matter what hour of the night... I must be notified if a swimmer will not be there so I can invite another swimmer into that relay spot.
Relay performances will be critical to our team's overall finish in this meet. Please do not pass up this opportunity to do your part for your team.
Thank you to the parents who stepped up immediately to time this afternoon. Please be ready to do so again tomorrow and to help share the load of timing, so parents can maybe rotate through shorter shifts of timing.
It's been a spectacular meet for individual swims... Let's cap it off with an amazing finals session!
