At the Meets

Bring a positive attitude to endure the heat and the organized chaos, a chair, towels, sunscreen, plenty of water, snacks (optional â€" there is usually a concession stand), and a sun hat or umbrella.

  1. Check in with the child's Team Parent. (VERY IMPORTANT)
  2. Sit near the Team Parent if possible (especially important for the 8 and under swimmers). Have your child get with the Team Parent for line ups at least 2 events prior to their swim
  3. Look for the Meet Director or Volunteer Coordinator and ask if you can help. (There are lots of things to do!)
  4. After the meet, clean up your area, check for personal items, and help put up the equipment at home meets

Criteria for Making the Team

  • To make the team, swimmers must be able to swim one length of the pool without touching the sides, ropes, or bottom and without stopping (see Hope Team policy below)
  • 7&ups may be required to swim two lengths of the pool and all strokes (Freestyle, Breast, Back, and Butterfly)
