Things to remember to bring with you to a meet:

  1. PCST team swim suit

  5. Clothes to stay warm between meets

Most swim meets have concessions on the site for lunch and sometimes breakfast. Some have shaded areas and some do not. Dress comfortably; most swim facilities do not have indoor areas to allow you to escape the heat. Check with parents who have previously attended a meet in a certain area and they will be able to describe the facilities for you. Several families bring tents and have them for shade.
