As we are on the eve of our ‘Last Chance’ meet, please remember to keep it low key at home and on deck. A lot of swimmers put extra pressure on themselves at a last chance meet. Right now it’s a great time to put on your cheerleading outfit and be your kid’s number one supporter! These meets are full of cheers and tears, so being neutral in your emotions will benefit your swimmer to stay focused on the multiple swims they will have this weekend.

Intermediate Splits, what are they?
Some swimmers will be attempting intermediate split times. The coaches have entered your swimmer already with the plan. So for an example, your swimmer might be close to a cut in the 50 Free but is entered in the 200 Free and will be swimming the 50 Free as an intermediate split of the 200 Free. Coaches will explain to the athletes what this means, how to swim it, and will also tell swimmers which events they will be swimming as intermediate splits (not everyone is doing them!).
As a parent, we will need your help to do these! To do an intermediate split we will need three independent timers with a stop watch. We will provide the stopwatch, but will need your assistance in being ready to go time for your swimmer! Swimmers are able to be a timer, too!
1500 and 1000 Freestyles
While there is nothing in the meet letter that states this, please plan to provide your own timer. As usual, you will need your own counter.
FLAG Meet Entries
Coaches must submit entries for the Florida Age Group Championships by 10:00pm on Wednesday night. Swimmer’s that DO NOT declare themselves as NOT GOING on our team website will automatically be entered.
More information regarding relays, etc will come as soon as we get through the Episcopal meet this week.
Thanks and GO LOGGERHEAD!
