At Meets

  • At 5 p.m. at meets, swimmers must check-in with coaches & be ready to swim warm-ups immediately.
  • Coaches, or junior coaches, will distribute each swimmer's schedule of events on an index card. This is how coaches know who is available to swim. This is very important in case coaches need to make changes to relay teams.
  • Meets are scheduled to begin promptly at 6 p.m. & by VSL rules must begin no later than 7 p.m. Meets consist of a total of 62 total individual and relay events, and must end by 10 p.m. Every parent helps make this happen by arriving no later than 5 p.m.
  • If a swimmer leaves without checking in with coach and misses a relay, the swimmer may NOT swim on any relays the remainder of the season.
