I wanted to inform the parent's of Polliwog's of some important information for the meet next Sunday, January 19. Due to the large number of Polliwogs attending from all of the CYO teams, we must swim in the large pool at Mt. Hood, which is the exact same place as last week.
Warm-ups begin at 1:00 sharp with assigned lanes, and the meet will start at 1:45. Please have all swimmers in their suits, ready to swim, and with the coaches by 12:45. With over 300 swimmers at this meet, it is important to give extra time for parking, changing, finding our team area, and getting situated. The meet should be over by 5:30. Since there are so many people, we will easily find ourselves if we all wear the new red WHCS T-shirt with Swim Team labeled on it. You can order yours here! You must order by 5PM on Monday.
As with all big meets, parent volunteers are in high demand. Our school must provide 4 volunteers. Some positions might be full. If so, you will be moved to another position. All positions are for parents only. Volunteers must check-in by 12:15. If you can volunteer, please email me immediately and indicate for which position you would like to volunteer.
- Stroke and Turn (must be certified through CYO)
- Ribbon sorter
- Safety Marshal/Timer
- Hospitality Room
- Revolving door assistant
Since this is a Championship Meet, there is an entrance fee of $2 adults / $1 children. Swimmers and coaches get in for free. Additionally, meet volunteers also get in for free! Also, I do not have access to the meet program for this meet. If you want a meet program, they will be sold at the event. I'm not sure how much they will charge, but I believe it will be $1-2. Please come prepared. Due to this fact, coaches will be marking the swimmer's hands with Event / Heat/ Lane to assure they do not miss their event!
Since this is the last meet of the season for the Polliwogs, this will also be their last week of practices. Plan to come the the practices at Valley Catholic Monday through Thursday, and the Dryland Practice at WHCS on Friday.
