Information for tomorrow's meet

Greetings Pool Sharks!

Tomorrow is the big day as we host Mt. Horeb for our Conference Dual meet to close out our 2021 season! 

  • If you want to see what your swimmer is swimming in the meet, go to the "Meets and Events" tab on our website and click on the gray meet entry box (that is marked closed). You will be able to see your swimmer(s) and what they are scheduled to swim tomorrow with the event number.
  • Please arrive at 6:45 am. We are splitting warm ups into 2 groups. Ages 13-19 will warm up from 7:00-7:10, and 12 and under will warm up from 7:15-7:25. Mt. Horeb will have the pool from 7:30-7:50. The meet will start at 8:00.
  • We will be honoring senior swimmers from both teams right before the start of the meet. Seniors should report to the pool deck behind the blocks at 7:55.
  • It is going to be HOT tomorrow! Please come prepared with lots of water and sunscreen. If you have a pop up or shade tent, we highly recommend bringing it to sit under during the meet to keep yourself and our swimmers out of the sun. If anyone has an extra pop up or awning they would be willing to bring, we can use it for our timers and officials who will be on deck the entire meet. If you are able to provide this, please bring it to the gate by the concession stand at the beginning of the meet. It will be returned to you at the end of the meet.
  • All volunteers will need to check in with Julie Goodman once you arrive and get set up. (Usually while the swimmers are warming up) She will be located on the pool deck by the clerk of course. You will then be told where to go and be trained for your job if needed. This is how you get credit for your volunteering, so please be sure to check in with her! Timers meeting will be at 7:45 on the pool deck in front of the pool office.
  • Tomorrow's theme for the meet is Safari! Come dressed in your favorite Safari attire to show some team spirit during the meet!
  • The 8 and under Free Relay will be run in it's normal event order at the end of the meet. 
  • Heat sheets will be for sale at the concession stand, as well as breakfast items, brats, burgers, loaded nachos, SnowCones and other concession items. The concession stand is cash only.
  • Clerk of course - Swimmers will report to the gate by the concession stand (where they have been entering for practice) to report for their events. Once they complete their races, they are to exit out the bathhouse through the locker rooms (like they have been doing for practice).
  • Spectators will be allowed to sit in the bleacher area, but are NOT allowed on deck. We are asking spectators to only use the bleachers while their child is swimming, so others can do the same. 
  • Once your child is done swimming all the events they are signed up for, you may leave. If you are not sure, please ask a coach to be sure they are done swimming before you leave. 

Some things that will be different for tomorrow's meet - 

  • Our normal dual meet ribbons will not be awarded for tomorrow's meet. The results from our meet will be combined with the results from the other Conference Dual meets going on tomorrow to determine the top 16 individuals and the top 8 relays in those events in the conference. The top 16 times in each individual event overall will be awarded ribbons and medals based on their time. Relays will earn ribbons and medals for the top 8 times overall. All results are time based. 
  • Swimmers must have swam in at least 3 dual meets this season to be eligible to swim for conference awards. There is no limit on swimmers or entries for this meet. Exhibition heats are allowed, but will not be eligible for conference awards. 
  • No team scores, or age-group scores will be tabulated. 
  • Since this is a combined virtual conference meet, RESULTS WILL NOT BE POSTED at the meet. We hope to have the final conference individual and relay results posted online sometime Saturday evening. Once the results have been approved, I will share them via team email, and they will be posted to our website.
  • We will be ending the meet with a fun Coaches relay! Be sure to hang around to cheer on our coaches as they take on the Mt. Horeb coaches! 

Our swimmers have come so far since the beginning of the season. It will be great to see some great times and races tomorrow! Best of luck to all our swimmers and coaches!

See you at the Pool!
