All swim clubs in the Vancouver Island Region contribute to the running of the Regional meet regardless of where it is held. To ensure a successful meet we ask parents from all clubs to look at the list and sign up for a number of volunteer shifts, this does not include timing. There are many opportunities to support the event from food prep & service to parking and timing console shifts. Each role will have a number of designated volunteers, Sidney Piranhas is shown as SPSC.

Additional Meet Information:
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.
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!
What to Bring
The forecast is typical for Mid Island - cloudy with sunny periods and a chance of rain :)
You will also need your Piranhas shirt and swim cap, healthy snacks, water, lots of towels, chairs and/or blankets.
