If you are new to high school swimming, you may find it a bit confusing. It's unlike USA Swimming club meets. High school swim is a competitive team sport, structured like the collegiate sport. Points from each event are added together for each team to determine the meet scores.

The subsequent pages give an overview of what to expect during the high school season.

Parent Expectations at Swim & Dive Meets:

  • Positive feedback and cheering at meets. 

  • No talking or loud noises during dives and swim starts.

  • After home meets, all parents are asked to assist in cleaning up the pool area:  help put away chairs on the deck, pick up any trash left behind in the stands, any lost and found items put in room behind concessions.

  • After home meets, parents and athletes meet in the cafeteria for a potluck dinner and social time.  Potluck sign ups and assignments are sent out the week prior.  Captains also give out the Buck Down and Shark awards to two athletes after the dinner.   All parents are encouraged to assist in clean up after the potluck.  Meets usually end by 8:15pm, with the potluck dinner ending by 9pm or 9:15pm.
