Swim Meet Logistics

Swim meets are not drop-off events; swimmers should have a parent or other responsible adult at the meet. Swimmers will sit with their age group under the tent, with the age group parents who are working at that meet. (The tents come down at sunset, but the swimmers still stay together in the tent area.)

Parents who are working at the meet should check in with the volunteer coordinators to get nametags, instructions, and equipment. Parents who are not working at the meet can find a place to sit in the shade or poolside (depending on the pool) to cheer the team on. Please keep the ends of the pool and ready bench areas clear so the swimmers, coaches, and meet volunteers have room to work and clear sightlines.

You are welcome to take your swimmers to the concession stand, etc., between events, but please let the Tent Parent know when you take your child and please return expeditiously.

In the event of lightning, the pool area will be cleared for safety, so you will need to move to your vehicle to wait out the delay in a safe spot. Unless a specific return time is communicated (via rainout line or announcement at the pool), assume that the meet may resume at any moment (i.e., don't leave!) It's especially important for meet volunteers to be ready to resume when the meet starts again, so stick close. If the pool is cleared, you are welcome to leave waterproof items behind, but you are responsible for the security of your belongings, rain or shine.

After each event, ribbons are awarded to the swimmers from each heat. You are welcome to take photos but be sure to allow space for the awards process to continue unhindered.

At the end of the meet, please collect your swimmers, all of their belongings, and any trash around their area. If you carry any pool furniture up into the grass, we appreciate help returning it to the pool deck after the meet.
