Meets are 100% run by parent volunteers - we will not start a meet until all spots are covered. Please do your part. We ask each family to work at least 4 shifts over the course of the season.
Since this is a virtual meet and we are not having any relays, all volunteers will work the entire meet. Anticipate 2 hours.
We will be using only lanes 1,2,3,4,5 - If we feel to slow or fast, we will adjust.

*Over the course of the season, the coaches will place swimmers in different strokes for the above reasons.*
Coaches determine heating and relays.
Please arrive on time, the coaches will mark your swimmer with their event/heat/lane assignment with sharpies on their arms or legs. PLEASE DO NOT PUT ON SUNSCREEN UNTIL COACHES HAVE MARKED YOUR SWIMMER.
