How do the swim meets work?
 

All swimmers need to be at the pool, ready to get in for warm-up, at least 30 minutes prior to the meet’s scheduled start time. The kids can swim any events that they wish, but their coaches will help them to choose the most appropriate events. Typically there are 25 yard events of each stroke for the 10 and unders, and 50 yard events for the 11 and older swimmers. There are ribbons for all competitors, and the kids swim against kids in their same age and gender groups (6 and under 25 free for boys, 9-10 girls 25 butterfly, etc.).  Meets last about two hours on average.  These Stingray meets are largely "intrasquad" meets, due to the size of our team, but will will sometimes host another team.
 
 
What volunteers are needed for the meets?
 
In order for the meets to run smoothly, we need to have:       
  • 8 parents, 1 per lane, to hand out ribbons and time each event.
  • Two parents to help run a concession (all profits will be put directly back into our Stingrays program).
