Map to Green Trails Pool
You might note to your team that for swim meets most people park on the North side of Kingsland Blvd in the Medical Facility and then walk across Kingsland using the cross walk. The directions we have are to our pool. It is only about 100 yards of walking and looks farther than it is in this picture.
This is a six-lane pool. See map for where the visiting team sets up.
Swim Meet Entries will be posted and emailed out tomorrow evening. We will have an estimated length of the meet tomorrow, but the meet will probably go until 11PM.
See attachment for items and pricing.
VOLUNTEERS ARE STILL NEEDED for Thursday's Swim Meet - see below of needs!
Contact Beth Lee at [email protected]
7/8 boys Marshal - 2nd shift
7/8 girls Marshal - 2nd shift
9/10 girls Marshal - 2nd shift
Set Up/Take Down - NEED 2 more People
Awards - 2nd shift
(Please remember this is volunteer driven, and we can't do this without everyone helping even if that means you take on an extra shift). Thank you!
Set up/ Take Down Crew: Thank you to Andrew Bordt for taking and bringing home our tents to both away meets! Crew, please be ready to help Andrew unload the tents and get setting up. He will also need help loading them into his truck at the end of the night.
Meet Survival Tips (the abridged version):
- Bring your own chairs for you and your children & cooler for drinks
- Label everything
- Write swimmer events/heats/lanes on BEFORE sunscreen
- Bring Cash or Venmo for concessions
- Bring extra dry clothing and towels (EVERYTHING gets wet)
- Bring a few stationary activities for the kids to stay busy and under the tents. Tablets, coloring books, action figures or dolls, or games like beyblades work well.
- Make sure to check in for your volunteer shifts at the Volunteer Check-In table!
Thursday, we will have condensed practice time at the Club (see below) and LATER PRACTICE ON FRIDAY! (we realize this is a change so if you can't make it, don't worry, but we have a meet on Monday and want to make sure we are prepared)
