The Robert Hornsleth Memorial Mini Meet is a mini meet for 8 & unders on Friday, December 3.  The meet is hosted by MSA, and is at Malvern Prep in Malvern, PA.  This meet is open only to Competitive Program swimmers.  The deadline to sign up has passed.
Masks are required inside the building at all times for spectators, swimmers (unless actively swimming), coaches, officials, and volunteers.  Spare masks will not be available for swimmers who lose their masks during the meet.
Swimmers should bring deck chairs and warm clothing for this meet, since swimmers will be off-deck in the school gym for the meet.
MSA has asked that families limit the number of spectators, due to Covid-19 and the limited amount of spectator seating.
A separate email with more information about the meet will be sent out next week, closer to the meet.
The Gator Classic is a mid-season championship meet for swimmers who do not qualify for the RMSC Holiday Invitational, or swimmers who do not have many events for the RMSC Holiday Invitational.  The deadline to sign up for the meet has passed.
There are relays for this meet.  Relays have been entered where there are enough swimmers in the session.  All relays will be swum in prelims.  Please plan on having your swimmer stay for the entire session, until the coaching staff has finalized the relays for that session.
