Meet Of Champions More Information - Division 3

Dear Meet Of Champion Parents,

We had our WHALe League Board Meeting for Meet Of Champions and All Stars with our three coaches Megan, Michelle and Savanna this evening. What came out of that meeting is that FBISD will not allow us extend our swim meet past 9pm. Our Division MOC was seeded this afternoon at 3pm is was discovered that our swim meet is running 5 hours and 30 mins. As a result a hard desision was made to cut out all relay events and only swim the individual events to stay within the time constraint. We are very unhappy with this descision and we are still fighting to keep the relays but we do not know the outcome as of right now. We will keep you posted. 

There are a few addition tweeks to the schedule. PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION.

16701 Bissonnet St, Houston, TX 77083

***Please account for TRAFFIC on 99, Westpark Tollway and 1464. It will be better to be early than late! Many of you are showing up for the meet right before it starts. This
is hard on the tent parents as well as the coaches. Your Swimmer must be on
time or they will be scratched out and will not be able to swim.


Sign up for a volunteer job at Meet of Champions - this does NOT count toward your required 5 shifts. Everyone who attends MOC is expected to volunteer to help us run the meet as it is considered a "post-season" event. MOC requires everyone to help. I have divided some volunteer jobs up into shifts some I could not due to the fact
that we only have 83 swimmers and we need 56 positions covered. EVERYONE needs to volunteer.

We need all the same positions needed to make a Home or Away Swim Meet Run smoothly.

Volunteers Needed: Please Sign Up on the Torperdoes website.

Swim Season 2023 Stroke/Touch/Turn Judges Will Need to sign up for Stroke/Touch/Turn Judging positions.

Age Group Marshals

Ready Bench





Our swim team will be overseeing setting up the chairs for the timers,
taping timer lane assignments to the back of the chairs, holding the meeting
with the timers, and making sure that all timers have arrived. If necessary,
find the team that happens to be missing and get it all straightened out.
Throughout the swim meet you will make sure the system is working well.

Please Sign up To Volunteer now.


I have below the information regarding the parking. We have been informed that the closest parking lot to where our Tam tent will be set up on the east side of the building is the Elementary parking lot. 


This is an eight-lane indoor pool. Visitors may stand along the side of the pool designated for Division 3 during your swimmer's events and in the parking lot in the designated roped of area with their swim team (NTST).

There will be two MOC's happening at the same time. Our Division which is Division 3 and Division 6. Please follow the instructions and signs pertaining to Division 3.


Swimmers and parents will be able to congregate outside the swimming facility around the team pool. Spectators will be allowed on deck. Spectators may come inside to watch their swimmers through the east side doors. Please be mindful and allow other families to see their swimmer and not "camp out." Once your swimmer has finished their event you must exit the building.


Please declare your swimmer's availability for All-Stars. I will need to turn that in at the end of the MOC. 


Parents heat sheets are available for download and print on the WHALe site for Division 3 MOC. https://whale.swimtopia.com/division-3-schedule. We will not be recieving revised heat sheets that reflect the elimination of relays.  

We will provide Heat Sheets for Age Group Marshals.
