LINK TO DOWNLOAD HEAT SHEETS- You will need to print and bring a heat sheet to the meet, they will not be selling them at the meet!
Loggerhead Patriot Meet Swimmers,
Please take a moment to pack up all your
gear! Extra towels, suits, chairs, etc. Make sure you
pack your shoes!! ALSO – VERY IMPORTANT – Print
and pack your HEAT SHEET (
download them here). They will not be selling heat sheets
at the meet.
NOTE: Friday 400IM and 500FR are positive check in events, so they don’t have a heat sheet yet.
The weather looks to be a little warmer for us compared to the past two days in Jacksonville but it will still be necessary to pack for cold temperatures. Remember, this is an outdoor meet. Shoes and hats are a great way to stay warm and prevent heat loss. There is a chance of rain on Saturday.
We will set up our team banner upon our arrival on Friday. We encourage our swimmers to sit together at away meets, so please locate the team area upon your arrival to the meet.
The venue will be available all day for tent set up on Friday. Tents are allowed on the pool deck ONLY next to the blue gymnasium and the white awning. All grass areas are OK for tents as well.
The meet is BIG! Around 900 kids are entered in the meet, so we will be swimming dual course in the afternoon. The 11-12s will be swimming on one course and the Open age group will be swimming on the other side. All Open competition will be on the deep side. The morning session 10&U’s will all be in the same course.
Please remind your swimmer to check in with their coach prior to and after every race. Coaches will announce relay teams after warm ups. As a reminder, all 12&U events will be scored as single age group.
Patriot has asked that any visiting team officials that are willing to work the meet please contact Bart Smith at [email protected].

Parking will be limited at the lower parking area next to the pool. There will be ample parking near the bus ramp and/or across Sand Lake Road at Forest City Elementary. Parents are encouraged by the meet host to park further from the pool to prevent congestion in lower pool area.
Please be on time for all assigned warm ups. We will post any changes to the afternoon warm up schedule on our team website as well as our team twitter account. PLEASE CHECK IN THE MORNING TO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY UPDATES.
Friday Session 1 (All Ages) – 3:30pm

Sunday Session 4 (10&U) – 7:50am
Sunday Session 5 (11&O) – 12:30pm*
*The timeline provided is using a 30sec per heat buffer. Most meets end up beating this timeline so we are estimating that they do so. The meet letter gives us a guaranteed 45minute warm up session between sessions. Please be ready to begin warm ups as soon as the 10&U session ends. We are estimating the times above will be the actual end time.
As usual, if your swimmer elects to wear a swim cap it MUST be a Loggerhead team cap!

Saturday – Navy Tshirts
Sunday – Green Tshirts
Thanks and GO LOGGERHEAD!
