It is very important for the coach to know whether swimmers will be unable to swim in a meet.
In an A meet, we can only replace three swimmers who scratch from the meet. Any additional No Shows, and we have empty lanes and others on the team are deprived of a chance to swim in the meet.
All swimmers must have a parent Commit or Decline them for every swim meet in 2016. Please do the entire swim season now, even if you don't think your swimmer will be asked to swim in a particular meet. Substitutes are often needed. To do so you must login to your account, on the Home Page select the appropriate Meet on the Events list below the scrolling photos, select the name of your child and change the Declaration box to either “Yes, please sign [name of child] up for this event” or “No thanks, [name of child] will NOT attend this event.” Be sure to Save Changes. Like previous years, the Old Farm Coaches will choose the events your child will swim in all Saturday A meets.
If something comes up after Wednesday, notify the coaches by email also on the Home Page. They can make changes without penalty up until Friday morning, but it is much better for the team if they do not have to make last minute changes.
