Swim Meets and Events

Mon May 10

Season Kick Off/New Parent Orientation
HC Pool
Start: 5:00 PM
End: 7:00 PM

Let's get the swim team families together to celebrate a new (hopefully more normal) swim team season!

Swimmers and their families will have an opportunity to get reacquainted and/or meet our new team members - as well as the coaches.

New parents are invited to attend a short meeting @ 6:00 in the clubhouse to learn a little bit about how our team works, expectations for the season, and get their questions answered.

Plans are in the works to have lifeguards, music, and FOOD (hot dogs, chips, water, cookies)!

Hopefully, our team suit provider, D&J Sports, will be present, so you can purchase your team suit too.

You won't want to miss it!

We'll need a headcount - so watch your email (or check back here) for a link to submit your RSVP.

Clinic#3 Stroke & Turn Official Training (choose #3 OR #4)
Zoom - or email Steve for in-person
Start: 6:00 PM
End: 8:00 PM

Do you want the BEST seat on deck at the swim meets? Then, HAVE I GOT THE JOB FOR YOU!

These volunteers attend a short "certification" training (2 hours) provided by the league (that includes some training videos and/or a live swimmer demonstration) to learn the rules of each stroke and what exactly constitutes a disqualification.

Generally, at each meet, each team provides 2 stroke/turn judges per 1/2 of the meet to ensure the meet is judged fairly and consistently. The stroke/turn judges report to the meet referee for final disqualification decisions.

This is a critical volunteer position for our team and is essential for the meet to be run smoothly and fairly. The bigger "pool" we have of trained judges, the less each of them is asked to work.

Please consider attending one of the trainings below by sending an RSVP email to:

MeetMatrix@sbcglobal.net, telling them which clinic you plan to attend (#3 or #4, not both). In addition, if you'd like to attend in-person (rather than zoom), email SMandacina@sbcglobal.net.

Clinic #3: https://zoom.us/j/97707063766

Alternately, volunteers can participate in an online self-paced training (that may take longer than 2 hours), for a fee that is reimbursed once he/she provides the parent committee with a copy of the completion certificate.

The course is found here:  strokeandturn.com

Mock Meet/Time Trials
HC Pool
Start: 5:30 PM
Warm-up: 5:00 PM

The Mock Meet is an opportunity to allow the swimmers/volunteers to have a general idea of what a meet is like - at least as far as how the swimmers approach the starting block, listen to the starter's command, etc. It is also when the coaches get their first "official" times for swimmers in each event - these are used as seed times in the first meet. If your swimmer(s) aren't able to attend the Mock Meet, talk to a coach about obtaining times during practice.
