OSSSC hosts a mock meet early in the season to allow our newest swimmers the opportunity to swim competitively in familiar surroundings, against their peers who they know, and with their coaches on the pool side guiding them, before the main competitive season begins. It also allows new swimmers to get a qualifying time that can be used for other meets to enter them into other races (i.e. to swim 25m back you need a 25m freestyle time).
This is also a great chance for all parents to get in some volunteer hours, begin their officials mentoring process, and learn the way a swim meet operates, in a smaller, shorter form.
This year we will be holding our mock meet on May 13th at the Okotoks Recreation Centre.
