If you are swimming in only a second half event - please talk to Coach Steve about what time you should arrive - a warmup pool is available during the entire meet.
The meet will begin at 5:45. Free is the first event - Medley Relays are last.
Our crash area is outside the gates, at the south end of the pool nearest to the road. See attached map. Bring canopies/tents for shade. You can bring coolers and food, but it should be kept outside the gates - please remember there is no alcohol allowed at swim meets.
Our conference meet theme is "Peace, Love, Stingrays!". Please dress for our theme (don't forget those tye dye shirts!) and feel free to decorate your crash area. There is a spirit contest this year. Thanks to Debi and Gene Kennedy for making our spirit banner, which the swimmers have signed and we will display prominently.
NO PARKING IS ALLOWED IN THE VETRINARIAN’S OFFICE PARKING LOT, and NO PARKING IS ALLOWED ON THE GRASS BETWEEN THE POOL AND CONGRESS. Cars parked in No Parking areas WILL BE TICKETED AND TOWED AT THE OWNERS EXPENSE. Please plan extra time to get there as parking may take awhile, and you may have to park far from the pool.
See attached map for clerk of the course. It is the responsibility of the swimmers and their parents to get their kids to the clerk on time - please listen carefully for your event(s) to be called.
Please remind your swimmers to check in with the coaches after each race, but they should not linger at the coaches table. There is not room for extra people by the coaches at this meet. Thank you!!
Results are posted by the bathrooms and on Meet Mobile as they are available.
