Guidelines for Age Group Tents
What to Bring - Getting ready for a swim meet can feel like going on a camping trip. When getting ready for a meet, consider the amount of time you will be spending in the sun and what you will need to stay comfortable. There is a lot of "downtime" between individual events. Please read the attached checklist to guide you in preparing meet day.
When to ArriveArrive early — at least 15 minutes prior to warm-up time. Look for "Note from Coach" prior to meet.Warm-up times will be posted communicated prior to each meet. As a general guideline, swimmers should be ready at 9:00 for home meets & 7:30 for away meets.Away meets start promptly at 8:00AM, and Home meets start at 10:00AM unless otherwise specified.Swimmers are expected to be on time for warm-up and available for relay substitutions.At the MeetIf you can arrive at the meet early to stake out a "team area" (preferably with some shade) that's helpful! If you have extra hands available please help "tent people" with area set-up.Swimmers should stay in team area, within their age-group area. If leaving age-group area other than to swim, swimmers should let the assigned age-group parent know. *Please see attached guidelines for Age Group Tents.
Listen for your event and be ready to go to the "ready bench." Parents - please know where your swimmer is at all times. Please reinforce to your swimmer that they are responsible for remaining with their age-group parent leader.It is ultimately the swimmer's responsibility to get to the ready bench and the blocks on time.Make sure you check with the coach & your age-group parent before you leave the meet. You may be needed for a relay!Please use trash cans for your garbage. We are a clean team!Have FUN :)
