Please check your athlete’s swim bag.  We have some mixups that we need to sort out.

IMG_2362Thank you everyone for a great home meet!

Ribbons for swimmers who earned them should be available next week.  For regular season meets, we will have ribbons for first through fifth place finishes. We will also have time improvement ribbons for when swimmers beat their own personal times in events (until we run out).

Thank you to all the athletes, parents, grandparents, volunteers and donators who make the our home meets such a success.

FYI, NCST had about 5″ of ribbons from this meet.  Pretty amazing job swimmers!

Here is the event line up for this weekend’s swim home meet against East Kentwood.  However, there always will be last minute changes due to illnesses and other unforeseen circumstances.

First Timer?  Here’s some more information

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

Check-in: 7:45am
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 or you highlight your name on a list (it depends on location but our plan is to have a list on the wall for highlighting your name.)

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.

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

Check-in Closes: 8:15am
Athletes who have not checked in will be scratched from the meet.

Meet Starts: 9:00am
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 his or her event numbers written on his or her arm.  Note, we won’t know the heat and lane numbers until the day of the meet.


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.

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.)

Let’s do it all again next week!

Next week’s meet is at home. Please contribute to help make our meet a success.

1 – Registration/Unable to Participate by Tomorrow Night

All registered swimmers will be entered into the meet. You must let us know if your athlete will not be participating. This is a change from last year.

Swimmers not showing up will affect relay teams (3 other swimmers) so it is imperative that you let us know if your athlete is not participating by 1/26/2016.  If we don’t have an accurate participation count, other swimmers will lose chances to swim.  Note, there is no practice this night.
By 1/26/2015, let us know your swimmer is unable to participate.

2 – Concession Donations

Thank you everyone who has donated concessions throughout the season.  NCST will not be operating the concession stand for the next meet.  The concession stand will be run by Northview Wrestling.

3 – Volunteers

We have several volunteer needs to help keep our swim meets running smoothly.  Please consider signing up to help the team out on Saturday, January 30, 2016.

Never helped before? No problem, we will train you, help you and thank you profusely!

Clean Up Crew, Timers, Marshalers and Greeters… they are all easy jobs.
