The psych sheet and the tentative timeline are posted on our website. Also attached is a draft of the warm-up assignments. If you have any concerns with these assignments, please let me know by 8 a.m. Monday.
Warmup and Overview of Session Times
Timeline information is outlined in the warm-up assignment document. As a reminder the varsity team has scheduled use of the pool on Sunday for their varsity last chance NCAA qualifier which is why we must work our sessions around them. Our Sunday morning session will start at 7:15 a.m. rather than 9:15 a.m. as on Friday and Saturday. All finals timelines are the same though if the varsity meet were to run long we will shift back accordingly. I don't expect this to be an issue though.
To ensure that we wrap up Sunday prelims and time trials in time, all 1650s will be swum with finals. We will swim those fastest to slowest alternating girls and boys (there are only three total heats, 2 girls and 1 boys).
Split Timed Finals Events
It is important to pay attention to timed finals events that have the fastest heat or two swimming at night. It is important to help those swimmers know when they are swimming since some events don't have any swimmers at prelims. I don't want there to be any confusion for those swimmers on the event day.
Volunteer Timers & Officials
If you have parents who are willing to help time, we would appreciate having their assistance. Please have them check in at the head table upon their arrival. If they would like to sign up in advance please have them email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone who is able to officiate should contact meet referee David Short at email@example.com.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
