Mock Meet and June 1....

posted Jun 1, 2013, 6:01 AM by RSST Swim Team
It's hard to believe we are ready to start swim meets, but we are just a few days away!  This Thursday, May 30th we will be having our mock meet/training night beginning at6:30 pm.  Although only the 10 and unders will be swimming, I would really like to see all parents attend.  We will be running new software this year so many of the jobs will run a little bit differently.  This will give everyone, parents of new and seasoned swimmers, the opportunity to train or observe all areas of a swim meet.  We will not be opening the concession though.  That will be the only area not operating.
I have sent a few personal emails out to ask about working at the mock meet because I need people who are very familiar with working a swim meet in all areas so they are able to help train parents of new swimmers.  I would really appreciate it if you could help us out! 
As stated earlier, the meet will being at 6:30pm.  Learn to swim will be in the pool until that time, so we will not have warm ups.  Please try to be here at 6 pm though so that we can begin to get lined up and start promptly at 6:30.  I am anticipating the meet to last appx 60 to 90 minutes.  We will only be swimming backstroke, freestyle and relays, so it will not be a full meet.  Please be patient as this is our first night running our new software.  It is for this purpose that we are having a meet prior to the official start of the season on Saturday
And now, on to Saturday's meet!  There are still quite a few volunteer openings for Saturday's meet.  Sign ups are in the pool area, just inside the main doors.  If the areas are not full by tomorrow night, I w ill have to start filling in names, so please take a few moments to sign up to work if you have not already done so.  Parent participation is a must and GREATLY appreciated!
