Championship Info...

There will be a couple of different end of season meets to end our swimming season.  Below you will find information about each one and about volunteering.  Please read this email carefully, it has a lot of information.  All the following meets occur at the Mt. Hood Aquatic Center and specifically under the bubble.

Polliwog Championships

First are the Polliwog Championships (K-3rd) on Sunday, January 15 from 1:00-5:30.  All polliwogs who have swam in two or more meets are eligible to swim, and this will be their last meet of the season.

Division (Cub/Cadet) Championships

Next, the Division Championships (4th-8th) will be on Sunday, January 22 from 1:00-5:30.  All cubs and cadets that have swam in two or more meets are eligible to swim, and this might be their last meet of the season.  Entries are due on January 10th.

All-Star Meet

Finally, the All Star Meet (4th - 8th) will occur on Saturday, January 28 from 1:00-5:00.  This is a fee-based, qualifying meet.  All swimmers who qualify for it can swim for about a $40 flat fee (meaning whether they qualify for one or three events, it will cost a total of about $40, exact charge will be announced before entries open). Entries can begin on January 9 and end on Jan. 24, and your fee payment must accompany entries.  Currently, here is a listing (2 pages) of who has qualified and in which events.


As always, these meets are staffed by parent volunteers and each team has a certain number of positions to fill. Spectators will have to pay to watch the meet and be crammed in the bleachers.  Volunteers can watch for free and are not confined to the uncomfortable bleachers.  So you want to volunteer, right?? ☺  Julie Motschenbacher will be emailing everyone with the details on how to volunteer for any of the three meets.

Meet tomorrow!

As you are hopefully aware of, we have another meet tomorrow.  This time it is at the Reynolds Pool, which is actually located at their middle school/administration offices (not the high school).  The address of the building is 1204 NE 201st Ave., Fairview, OR.

Due to a miscommunication between one of the coaches and myself, we are co-hosting this meet.  It is important that we fill a few spots to make this meet run smoothly.  The other team is filling a majority of the positions.  Please click the following link and volunteer.  Our meet's success depends on your volunteering.

The meet program can be found here.  Warm-ups begin at 4:00 and volunteers should be in their place by 3:40 and all swimmers should be on the deck by 3:45.  The meet will end close to 7:00pm, due to the number of swimmers.

Finally, if your swimmer has become ill and will not be at the meet, please email me ASAP or text me at 503-267-2346.
