SRST News: Super Important! Week of Oct. 31

Stingray Swim Club

Hello Team!

Here are some very important news items for the week:

  1. SWIM MEET FEES: Many people are not understanding the cost of swim meets.  In order to understand your fees you need to read the meet information to see the surcharge and per race fees.  In addition to these fees, SRST charges $15 for every meet/per swimmer.  This additional $15 offsets the cost of coaches and it helps pay for relays.  Even though we don't charge for relays, the Team Unify system will show relays on the invoice line item.  There is no way to turn that off unfortunately.  If you take out your calculator and total these items you should have the correct total:

    ==>Per Swimmer Surcharge (as stated in meet info): $15 (let's use $15 as an example.

    ==>Per Individual Event (as stated in meet info): $13.5 (in this example we are doing 3 races at $4.5/each)

    ==>SRST Surcharge Per Swimmer (as stated in our fee section on the JOIN TEAM page): $15 

    TOTAL = $43.50 ($15 + $13.5 + $15)

    Note: Also note that when we host a meet we charge an additional $15 per family to help offset the cost of food for officials and coaches.

     
  2. PRACTICE CHANGE:  SAC is closed for high school championships this week, Wednesday/Thursday/Friday.

    Each of these days we will practice at Mariner with the following schedule:

    ==>Gold 5-6 PM
    ==>AG1 6-7 PM
    ==>AG2/Senior 5-7 PM

    IMPORTANT:
    COME IN SUITS AND DO NOT DROP OFF YOUR SWIMMERS UNLESS YOU KNOW THE COACHES ARE THERE AND THE POOL IS OPEN.  PLEASE COME INTO THE POOL TO PICK UP YOUR SWIMMERS AT THE END OF PRACTICE...WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THEY LEAVE THE POOL BECAUSE IF THEY DO THEY ARE UNSUPERVISED.  A COACH WILL STAY AT THE POOL UNTIL ALL SWIMMERS ARE PICKED UP SO PLEASE BE PROMPT.

  3. BBST ENTRY DEADLINE: TODAY!!!
  4. MEET RESULTS/USA SWIMMING: Many of our members are thinking their results from swim meets are not going thru, but we are finding that there is a pretty long delay in getting results posted to USA Swimming.  I would recommend waiting 2 weeks from the conclusion of the meet before emailing Coach Ben to look for missing times.

    In the case of a disqualification, there will not be a recorded time.  Swimmers should be talking to coaches after every race and prior to leaving at the end of each swim meet.  This will give the coaches the opportunity to share info with swimmers when they get disqualified.  If a swimmer is disqualified at the meet they should contact their direct coach to discuss what things need improvement.

Thanks,

Coach Ben
