Q: HOW DO I KNOW IF A MEET IS FOR MY CHILD?
A: The meets are posted on the Events section of the website. Within the description we try and post whom the meet is geared for. We add details as we get them from the hosting club. If you are unsure if a specific meet is suited for your swimmer, please talk to your coach and they can let you know.
How much do meets cost?
Cost of meet is dependent on whether it is local or travel, how many days, level of competition and much more. We upload the costs to the event page as we receive details (meet packages) from the hosting Swim Club. Your account will be charged for the meet prior to the event. Payment can be made as outlined in the payment section above.
How long are meets?
Every meet is different. Approximate start and end time are posted to the event as we receive them.
How do I sign my swimmer up to attend a meet?
At the beginning of every season, our coaching staff publishes a meet list. This season’s schedule is currently located under “Events/Meets”. Parents are responsible for Signing Up for a swim meet prior to our deadline - not signing up will result in an assumed drop-out of the eligible meet. Coaches will then do the actual individual entries on behalf of all signed-up swimmers using their seasonal plan and expertise to determine the appropriate events for the swimmer. Once individual entries have been established they will be uploaded to the website. This is where you will be able to see what your child is swimming. For step by step process to sign up for meets please go here.
