6/23 Swim Meet Results

Thank you everyone for a great meet!

Looking at the results from Thursday’s meet and seeing some great time improvements for many of our swimmers!

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 when swimmers beat their own personal times in events (until we run out).

First Timer?  Here’s some more information

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

Check-in: 4:45pm
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: 5:00pm
Coaches will warm up the athletes.

Check-in Closes: 5:15pm
Athletes who have not checked in will be scratched from the meet.

Meet Starts: 6:00pm
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.)

Quick Links

We still need plenty of volunteers and concession donations to run a successful meet.

There is still time to sign up for the Summer Season.  We’d love to have you join our team and you haven’t missed a swim meet yet.

First time swimming?  Make sure you check out our First Time Swimmer page.  Also note, the summer season is a little more laid back than the winter season.
