READ THE FULL COVID GUIDELINES AT THE END OF THIS EMAIL

SWIMMERS AND FAMILIES MUST RUN A PREMEET COVID CHECK BEFORE ARRIVING TO THE FACILITY.  TAKE A TEMPERATURE AND CHECK FOR SYMPTOMS BEFORE ARRIVING TO THE FACILITY.

The ultimate goal of this meet is to NOT mix interaction between the two teams other than in the 8 lane competition course during a race.

It is going to be COLD for this meet.  Bring extra socks, warm ups, towels, etc.  Parkas and shoes are a MUST!  Even with cold temperatures, social distance must be kept through the meet in the bleacher section.  Bring warmth for YOU.

All Loggerhead Swimmers are to enter in the smaller side entrance gate between the pool and softball field (see diagram below) that is on the Scoreboard side of the pool.

Loggerhead has been assigned the area directly behind the scoreboard as their designated team area.  All swimmers will be in this area the entirety of the meet unless racing, using the restroom, or directed differently by an official or coach.  Bolles will set up tents over this area to assist with any weather issue, but it might not be a bad idea to have an extra tent in the car in case (if you are a driver).

Warm Ups and Heat Sheets and Attire

No Technical Suits for this meet.  All swimmers electing to wear a cap MUST wear a Loggerhead team cap.  BE ON TIME FOR WARM UPS.
