Cub / Cadet Championships

The Cub & Cadet Championship Meet is this Saturday, January 20 from 1:00-5:30pm at Mt. Hood CC in the bubble.  Keep in mind that this is day 1 of 2.  Different CYO teams swim on Sunday.  If your swimmer gets second place on Saturday, it will be combined with the results from Sunday's meet, and your swimmer might earn a different place due to the combination of results.

Here are the details you need to know for our meet.  This will be a large meet!  Plan to arrive on deck by 12:45 with your swimmer who is ready to swim, except for a shower.  If you are volunteering for the meet, you should plan to arrive by 12:20.  Look for our school's banner which will show our team location, and your swimmer will sit in that area.  Warm-ups will begin at 1:00 and the meet will begin around 1:30.  See the Meet Program (below) for an approximated timeline of all events.

There will be an entry fee for this championship meet ($2 adult & $1 child [not swimmers]), unless you are volunteering.  If you are volunteering, check-in at the volunteer desk to get an job badge, then you won't be charged.  This year, heat sheets will be made available electronically, see below.  No heat sheets will be sold at the meet.

If your cub or cadet swimmer needs to go to the bathroom during the meet, please have a plan for them, since they are all located inside the other building.  I will have limited coaches at the meet, and we will need to keep our focus on the swimmers in the water and the ones sitting in the stands.

Lastly, this is a longer meet, so your swimmer should plan to bring some food.  I suggest fruits and easy to eat finger foods.  They do not need a whole meal!  They should definitely have a PLASTIC water bottle.  They should also bring some activities to occupy the time that are not damaged if they get wet.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me.   FYI, replies to this email or blog post get lost in cyberspace.  Finally, if your swimmer isn't going to make it to the meet, email or text me (503-267-2346) ASAP!!
