Your First Swim Meet

Your First Swim Meet

  1. Arrive ON TIME. The coaches will let you know what time you need to arrive at practice the week before. This information will also be available on the website, through e-mail, and on the team calendar.   

  2. Once you arrive, find the check-in desk for the meet.

  3. Once you have been checked in, find out where the rest of the team is sitting and make yourself comfortable. This is where you will sit until the meet is over.

  4. Once you put all of your stuff down, get ready for your group warmup with your coach.

  5. After warm-up go back to your spot and wait for your first event.

  6. Heats and lanes are typically posted at open meets.  The posting will identify what heat and lane your swimmers will be in for each event.

  7. Once the official tells you to, you may then step up on the block and swim your race.

  8. After you finish swimming your race, find a coach to see how awesome you did and get feedback!

  9. After you talk to a coach, go back to your seat until your next event is called.

  10. Once you are finished with all of your events, be sure to check with a coach to see if it's ok for you to leave. If you are swimming in the last event, then you may leave as soon as you finish your race.
