General Meet Info

What to Bring to a Swim Meet

Please label everything - the Lost & Found grows with each meet!

  • Team suit or black suit; Team shirt; Swim cap 
  • Towels, goggles, sunglasses, and SUNSCREEN
  • Snacks, drinks (snack bar is open)
  • Money for the snack bar
  • Swim Buddy item

Heat Sheets

Heat sheets are a listing of how the meet is organized. It lists the events, swimmers, heats, seed times, and lanes. Heats usually get progressively faster (i.e., the last heat to swim each event usually has the fastest swimmers based on seed time).

How to Read a Heat Sheet

Heat Sheets will be posted on our website the evening before a meet. They are also posted on the wall by the showers, bulletin board, and by the North Ramada. You can also print these out at home, but they are not available at the meet for purchase.

MARKING SWIMMERS

It is highly recommended to mark your child for their events. 

Marking Arm Diagram

To help the meets go smoother, PLEASE mark your child's right arm with all their events, heats, and lane numbers (open diagram above). PLEASE use a permanent marker (Sharpie or Sportsafe Marker) so the marking will last the entire Meet. 

Hint: Put sunscreen on your child first and let it dry completely. Then, mark the arm & back.

FINAL REMINDERS...

  • Out of courtesy to the host team, we ask everyone to please pick up after themselves.
  • Goals: Have fun and relax! Take care of yourself! Encourage Teammates!
  • Take lots of pictures. If you have one that would look good on our website, send it to Wahooswim@gmail.com
