All Star Meet info and program

The All Star Meet is this Saturday at the Mt. Hood CC Aquatic Center again. 

Here are the details you need to know for our meet.  Plan to arrive on deck around 12:30 with your swimmer who is ready to swim, except for a shower, because warm-ups are from 1:00 to 1:20.  The meet will begin at 1:30.  It is ok to arrive later, if your swimmer is not in the beginning of the meet.  If this is the case, see the Meet Program (below) for the approximate time of their event.  Plan to arrive 90-60 minutes before they swim, and then they can use the shallow part of the pool for a proper warm-up.

The meet needs additional volunteers. As a school, we have satisfied our fair share, but the meet still needs 11 timers, 3 runners, and 8 bullpen workers. At this point, it is best to volunteer at the pool, but these positions are first-come.  The following people are already confirmed volunteers: Patrick Leslie (bullpen), Jon Dooley (bullpen), and Dan Bates (S/T). If you are volunteering for the meet, you should plan to arrive by 12:20, and maybe a little earlier if you want one of the extra spots Volunteers get in for FREE! All volunteers should go to the North Door to sign in and get a badge for free entry.

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.

Championship Meets / All Star Practice

WOW!  What great swims over the past two weekends by everyone!!  I am so happy to see each swimmer go out and try their best in the Championship meets.  I will post the results for both meets as soon as I have the final copies.

For the 10 swimmers that are swimming in the meet this weekend (All-Star Meet) we have our last two practices for the season on Tuesday and Wednesday from 5:00-6:00pm both days.  We will be working on their events exclusively, so come to one or both.  Coach Kevin will be at both practices to give some last minute pointers on their race(s).

Please remember to submit payment for the meet during practice this week.  I have only received two sets of entry fees.  It is $40 as a check to WHCS or cash will work too.

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!!
