Heat Sheet  

Meet Mobile
You can keep track of events and results in real time using the handy Meet Mobile app. This is a yearly paid app but well worth it.

Volunteer Requirements
Each club is required to provide timers for every swim meet. It's a very simple job and offers the best seats in the house. 

There will be a sign up for timing shifts posted at the pool. Every family who has more than one adult attending and/or has older kids who don't need constant supervision are expected to take a timing shift. The meet can not run if we don't fill the shifts!

You might also consider becoming an Official. The first step is to head on the deck and ask any of the Stroke and Turn judges if you can shadow them. If you have any questions about this please contact Paul Miler at
