Meet info for tomorrow

Greetings Pool Shark families,

Tomorrow we will be hosting Wisconsin Dells at our Outdoor Pool! If this is your first swim meet, please see the "Swim Meet 101" section under the "Resources" tab on our website, or click the link below to know what to expect and how to prepare.

Swim meet 101

  • Please arrive at 6:45 am. Our warm-ups will be from 7:10-7:30 am. Wisconsin Dells will have the pool from 7:30-7:50. The meet will start at 8:00 am.
  • 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. Also, if you have not uploaded the free Swimtopia App, it is very helpful in signing your swimmer up for meets and seeing what they are swimming. 
  • Thank you to everyone who signed up to volunteer! We are still looking for a few more timers to be able to support 2 shifts. If we are not able to fill both shifts, we will need some timers to time the entire meet. Timer meeting is at 7:45 am in front of the lifeguard office.
  • It looks like it is going to be a beautiful day, but may be chilly to start the morning. Please come prepared with warm clothes, blankets and extra towels. Also bring plenty of water and sunscreen for when the sun comes out. If you have a pop up or shade tent, we highly recommend bringing it to sit under. 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 me (Julie Goodman) once you arrive and get set up. (Usually while the swimmers are warming up) I will be located in front of the lifeguard office. 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 get checked in first thing in the morning.
  • Saturday's theme for the meet is Hawaiian! Come dressed in your favorite Hawaiian attire to show some team spirit during the meet! (swimsuit underneath of course!)
  • We are bringing back FRUIT to the concession stand!! At each home meet half of the team is asked to bring cut up fresh fruit in a container/ziplock bag to the concession stand upon arrival to be mixed and served as fruit cups. This meet will be the back half of the alphabet, so if your last name starts with L-Z, please bring fruit this meet! :)
  • Heat sheets will be for sale at the concession stand, as well as breakfast burritos, brats, burgers, and other concession items. The concession stand is cash only.
  • Clerk of course and flow of traffic. Swimmers will report to the gate by the concession stand to report for their events. Once they complete their races, they are to exit out the bathhouse through the locker rooms.
  • Spectators will be allowed to sit in the bleacher area, and outside the fence, but are NOT allowed on deck.
  • 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.

We look forward to a beautiful day tomorrow and seeing you at the pool!
