Swim Meet Reminders
1. Team Uniform is to be worn at meets – team suit and team cap are the only acceptable items to be worn for competition.
2. During meets, parents are responsible for their swimmers. Swimmers are to remain off of the play areas and out of the baby pool during the meet.
3. ALL swimmers are to stay for the duration of the swim meet. Swimmers will be allowed to leave at the completion of event #69. (Just like a football, basketball, or soccer game – half the team does not get to leave at halftime while their team mates finish the game.)
Let’s Go Flying Fish!!!
