We will also have the entirety of the unshaded grass area on the other side of the stairwell. Please keep the stairwell clear so that swimmers/parents can hear the announcer for event/heat order, etc.
AGE GROUP TENT DETAILS:
***Please do not enter the Age Group Tent area to either check in your swimmers or to set up your own chairs until AFTER set up is complete.
Check In: Drop your swimmers off at their appropriate age group tent and check them in with the age group parent. Make sure they are sun-screened and marked up BEFORE you leave the area :) Events on arm, name on back of shoulder. See instructions. Also, please don’t remove your child from their tent (bathroom/concessions) unless you notify the Age Group Parent.
Check Out: Notify the Age Group Parent when you’re leaving for the day and actively check them out.
Allergy Alert: If your child has a severe allergy please ensure you have appropriate medication (e.g. Epi-Pen) on hand and inform the Age Group parents. We are often in grasses or parking lots during meets. If you child has a bee, fire ant or other insect allergy please come prepared.
We have children with severe nut allergies and ask families to help us be a Peanut and Tree Nut free team. Please refrain from bringing food containing nuts to the swim meets. Children hang out in Age Group tents and contact may be unavoidable. Nutella contains nuts.
Concessions: Concessions will be located on the other side of the pool from our zoos near the football field and track.
Heat sheets will be available for downloading Friday. Per the Bylaws, we will not have extra hard copies of the heat sheets at the meet, but we will provide for stroke & turn clipboard and one per timer lane.
