Rock The Blocks Entries for this Weekend

Please Write Your Swimmer’s Event Numbers on His or Her Hand or Arm Friday Night.

This invite is particularly fun as its rock-n-roll themed and its a great way for your swimmer to see how a meet is before the regular meets start.

Remember, this is the first meet of the season.  Swimmers will be trying events they have never done before (sometimes never even swam in a meet).  This is an invitational and swimmers should just do their best and see what they can do.

First Timer?  Here’s some more information

Make sure your swimmer arrives with ample time to check-in and warm-up.

Check-in: 7:30 am
Your swimmer must check in so that the event coordinators know he or she is there.  If your swimmer does not check in, he or she will be scratched from the events.

Check in is either with a person at a desk or you highlight your name on a list – it depends on location.  Go with the flow when you arrive, you’ll figure it out.

Once checked in, swimmers proceed to the locker room and swim deck and find your team and Coach.  The team generally sits together and cheers each other on.  Parents up to the balcony to watch.

Your athlete will want 2 towels, one to sit on, one to dry off with.  Healthy snacks is a good idea, remind them to clean up after themselves.  Something to entertain themselves between events may be a good idea – electronics are discouraged (it’s a wet pool after all.)

Don’t forget your goggles!  In fact, bring an extra pair if you have them.

Warm-up: 8:00 am
Coaches will warm up the athletes.

Check in Cut Off: 8:15 am
Any swimmers who have not checked in by 8:15am will be scratched from the meet.

Meet Starts: 9:00 am
Once the meet starts, athletes need to listen for their events to be called.  They will be marshaled ahead of time to keep the meet moving.

This is where it helps for the swimmer to have event numbers written on his or her arm.  Note, we won’t know the heat and lane numbers until the day of the meet.  So, just write the event number, distance and stroke on your athlete’s arm.


Remind your swimmer they are representing themselves, our school and our community.  Be respectful of the facility and other swimmers.  Cheer their teammates on and have fun!  Swimmers should focus on improving on their own times and this is a for fun invitational.

Don’t forget to read our First Timer guide online too.  Especially the part about Heats and Events (your swimmer may win a heat, but not the overall event.  Some events have many heats.)
