Hey Shark Parents!
Our Yellow 1 Division Meet is Saturday, June 22nd, 2019 at Greenwood Forest, Address: 12700 Champion Forest Dr. Spring, Tx 77066! Let's show them what we got & bring another "W" home to close out the season!
**RSVP for this meet is CLOSED**
Swimmer Check In:
Swimmers arrive by 7:00 am & must be checked in before 7:30 am. Any swimmer checked in after 7:30 am is at risk of being scratched for the entire meet. Swimmer check in is located in the area between the concessions and the pool gate in front of the bathrooms. Swimmers will receive their slip with the events they are swimming. Swimmers should check in with Coaches by 7:30 am for instructions for warm ups. Coaches will be set up on the far side of the pool closest to the starting blocks.
As a a reminder, our swim meet cannot start until all of our volunteer positions are filled. If you are able to fill any open positions, please let Anne Fischer (firstname.lastname@example.org) know.
**FULFILL YOUR VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT & SIGN UP ASAP**
This is a division meet, so there is more than one shift available for volunteering. Volunteers need to check in with the Volunteer Coordinator as soon as you check in your swimmer(s). The Volunteer Coordinator(s) will be located in the area between the concessions, clubhouse area & the pool gate in front of the restrooms, usually next to the swimmer check in. If you are volunteering in a position you are new to, please let us know & you will be put you in contact with the right person to get you situated in your duties.
Team Setup and Parking:
Please see the attached map for our set up area. We are in the yellow section labelled SCF 8. Please try to set up along the edge farthest from the chain link pool fence, as Preston Wood Forest may need some additional space. Parking is in the shopping mall area, marked 3 on the map. Please do not park in areas directly in front of the shops, so that patrons can still get there. Street parking is also available. The parking lot labelled 11 is for handicap and those with team parking passes. The round driveway, labelled 2 on the map, can be used to drop off equipment, and people. Please do not block this drive as there are lots of people to get dropped off.
What to Bring:
The Basics: goggles, swim cap, suit & towel.
Sunscreen, cover up clothing, and some sort of shoes are also needed. Many families bring there own pop up shade to sit under during the meet. It isn't required, but remember that you will be sitting out in the sun for the better part of the day. Meets usually run until 2 pm or later in the afternoon. You also want to bring chairs, sunscreen, money for concessions, snacks and drinks, and something to help occupy your kids time while they wait for their next event. Many of the younger kids will bring books and crayons or even some toys to play with while under their tent while others bring cards or other small games.
The concessions team has a wide variety of grilled food, snacks and beverages to last from early morning till the end of the meet, so bring some cash to keep your swimmers appetites at bay! Breakfast items such as, donuts and coffee, to hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, candy and variety of other menu items, you don't need to think about bringing food!
Swimmers and parents are not allowed to question, interfere, or talk to meet officials. Officials will be wearing white shirts and blue shorts/pants and will have NWAL name tags. This includes scorers and computer entry officials. Violation of these rules can cost your team points and can cause your swimmer to be disqualified from their last or next event. Any problem during the meet needs to be brought to the attention of either a team board member or coach.
** Nobody is allowed in the pool unless they are competing in the event that is in progress. This includes the shallow pool. Doing so will delay the meet and can cause swimmers to be disqualified.**
Swim caps MUST be worn by all girls as well as by boys with long hair.
The general rule of thumb is if we can hear thunder or see lightning, everyone is out of the pool and we don't swim until the weather clears. We usually swim in the rain unless it is heavy enough that the coaches cannot see the bottom of the pool. This goes for practice as well as swim meets. Practices will be delayed or called off at the discretion of the coaches and the SCF Board of Directors. Swim meets will be delayed or canceled by the meet referee. We will do our best to put out the word on the web site and by email as soon as possible.
If you have any questions, please find one of our board Members, we're always happy to help. We look forward to seeing everybody on Saturday Morning!!
