Saturday Meet Sheet is Ready.  Attached to this email (and posted in the Documents section of our Team Unify pages) is Saturday’s meet sheet.  Review this carefully to see what event(s) your children are swimming.  Even if your child has never swum in an A meet before, please have a look because we have a lot of first-time A meet swimmers!  Questions?  This is where you find us: [email protected]


Did You Know… that you can see times from each swim meet event on your phone?!  Open a browser on your phone and go to and you will be able to view the same time results screen that is projected on the monitors around the pool deck.  Note: these times are not final and do not reflect any disqualifications that may impact the submission into a swimmer’s history.


Family Potluck Dinner, Trivia Contest, and Pep Rally begins at 6:00pm on tonight.  It’s Pasta and Trivia Night!  Food assignments are by family last name: Holmes Run Acres Hurricanes : Event (

Each family is welcome to bring a tablecloth and their own beverages (lemonade will be provided) and enjoy socializing.  We’ll divide up into adult teams and kid teams to enjoy a fun trivia night!  There will be PRIZES!  And BRAGGING RIGHTS!  Pep rally and cheers will follow.  All swim families are invited, regardless of if you’re participating in A meets, B meets, or are Tropical Storms.


Saturday Morning A Meet: Hayfield Farms @HRA

Theme:  Dress as a Super Hero!

  • Parking: We want our visiting team to have plenty of space to park in our lot, so we ask that Hurricane families either 1) walk to the pool, 2) park at Woodburn Elementary and walk to the pool, or 3) park on a street in Holmes Run Acres, taking special care to not block any driveway.
  • Volunteer Slots: Right now, we still need (2) Marshals (arrive at 7:45am, you get the best view of the pool!), (1) Timer, (4) Set-Up, arrive at 7:00am, (1) Mask Runner, and (2) people to help at the Hurricane Café (especially with set-up, starting at 7:30am), and (2) folks to work the grills.  All deck officials should wear navy blue bottoms and white tops (also, bring a water bottle!) This all works easily if everyone does a little to help: HRARA: Hurricanes Volunteer Roster (

All masked swimmers are encouraged to take regular "breaks" by distancing themselves from others, removing their mask for fresh air and drinking plenty of fluids.  If they begin to feel overheated, dizzy, or weak, they should keep their mask on and get the attention of a coach immediately.


  • Hurricane Café will be open for breakfast!  The menu includes Anita’s Breakfast Burritos, bagels and cream cheese, donuts, coffee, fruit, snacks, candy and ice-cold beverages.  We’ll also fire up the grills for burgers and dogs as we round into lunchtime.  Cash or cards are accepted.


Save the Date – Burke Station IM Carnival.  Wednesday, July 14 at 6pm.  All swimmers who can swim a “legal” Individual Medley are encouraged to show their stuff at this fun carnival event.  More details to come…
