Please remember to sign-in or out of the dual meets this coming Saturday by the Wednesday at 9pm deadline.
Recall that to be league eligible to participate in the January dual meets and league championship meet (A champs) swimmers must participate in at least 2 of the November/December dual meets. Further, SWAC swimmers must participate in at least 3 of the November/December dual meets to be assured a spot on the team for next season. Please be sure to manage your December dual meet attendance to meet these requirements.
Please take a moment now that the meet season has begun to read (or re-read) the dual meet and champs primer found on the website (go to resources then meet resources). Make special note of the following:
Please keep in mind as we go through the season that for each dual meet the coaches are scheduling between 55 and 65 boys and 80 and 100 girls to swim in 39 events (many with additional heats). It's like a big puzzle with many factors that need to be considered to arrive at the optimal solution. The coaches do their best to write a smart and fair line-up each week given the parameters (such as swimmers in attendance and number of extra heats negotiated with the opposing coach).
Please respect this effort by ensuring that any requests you make are reasonable (for example, "would like to swim back or fly" as opposed to "please put in back, fly and both relays"), and by accepting the line-up as it is even if your request was not able to be accommodated at a particular meet.
