SWIM MEETS - What to expect


2018 season - 5 meets: 3 home & 2 away

Home Meets:

  • Declare your swimmer's intent to swim in Team Unify the Monday BEFORE a meet. Our lineup is sent to the other team early in the week.
  • Signup for meet volunteer job during the week of the meet, via website
  • You will receive a meet information email a few days before each meet.
  • Heat sheets will be emailed on Friday night - we do not sell heat sheets on deck. Feel free to print and bring to the meet. 
  • Set up volunteers arrive at the pool at 6:30A
  • Swimmers arrive at the pool for warmups by 7:00A
  • Swimmers check in at announcers tent as soon as they arrive
  • First half volunteers check in at announcers tent as soon as they arrive
  • Second half volunteers check in at announcers tent as soon as they arrive AND at half time.
  • Bring chairs, towels, sunscreen, waters, umbrellas & money for concessions
  • Our team sets up the side closest to the buildings; we have a small deck so it will be a very "close" time.
  • Our visiting team sets up by the shallow end and along the far side of the deck, they have less space so please don't go on that side of the pool.
  • Events your child will be swimming are posted along the glass windows under the overhang. You can also access your swimmer's individual events through the website.
  • Bring a sharpie to write your child's events/heat/lane on their arm.
  • The area under the overhang and under the Serpent tent is for our swimmers to sit. This keeps them out of the sun and in one area close to the "zoo" (the area swimmers are lined up)
  • Younger swimmers can sit with their families but please be aware of the events that are lining up and get your swimmer to the clerk of course in the zoo for checkin about 3 events before they swim.
  • Meet starts at 8:00A
  • There is a short break between halves while volunteers switch out.
  • Meet ends between 12:30 & 1:00P

  • Team Rep will email the final meet results that evening.
