  • Sharpies- used to mark your swimmers events on them 
  • Heat Sheet-these will be emailed to you the day of the meet 
New families this can be a very overwhelming time so please do not hesitate to ask for help. We have all been there at one point. The biggest thing to remember aside from having fun is the parents are responsible for getting their child over to the "bull pen" area. This will be located in the grass area right behind the blocks. We will have several row of benches lined up for the Clerk of Course to place the kids in according the events and heats. There will be announcements made for each event- a first call, second call and last call. This will assist your swimmers on knowing when to head over to the bull pen.
Reminder please the only people to be behind the blocks are the swimmers, timers and coaches. Parents can watch from the sides of the pool or on the opposite end of the pool.
Heat Sheets: Heat sheets will be emailed to you the day of the meet. This will give you the information on what even your child will be swimming, what heat and what lane. I have attached a sample below for those who have never seen a heat sheet below.
Marking your swimmer:
Here is where that sharpie on the list to bring comes in handy. You will write on your swimmer with the sharpie their events and create a "cheat sheet" that is waterproof for the swimmers and the Clerk of Course to use as a reference guide to ensure your swimmer doesn't miss an event.

Relays: Please remind your swimmer that for relays do not go to the block go to your COACHES first. They will be lining the swimmer up and ensuring they are in the correct relay order.

New Fundraiser this year during events: At Home Meets we will be hosting a new fundraiser for the team. For this swim meet we will have two gift baskets we will be selling tickets for. The tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5. Place your ticket in the bucket for which basket you would like to win. This week we will be raffling off a basket from Skyline and a Basket with Dayton Dragon tickets 🙂 cash or Venmo accepted
