Virtual Meet Webinar Link (and Other Information from SwimTopia)
Team Reps and Head Coaches,
Thank you to everyone who joined the SwimTopia webinar last night. We had nearly 50 GKAISA team reps and coaches on the call.
In case you missed it (or if you would like to see it again), I have attached the link to a recording of the webinar: https://vimeo.com/414008275
For the first 20 minutes, they talk about a safe return to practices and meets with Joel Shinofield, Managing Director of Sport Development for USA Swimming. Click this link to access a handout to supplement the webinar with some points to consider when planning for a safe return to the pool: see our PDF here.
In the recording, Joel mentions that USA Swimming is working with the CDC and others to come up with a set of guidelines for a safe return to the pool and suggested facilities use. When those guidelines become available, Joel said he would share them with SwimTopia. They will be sent to GKAISA to share with you (hopefully, next week).
For the next 40 minutes of the recording, SwimTopia CEO Mason Hale demonstrates how virtual meets will be run in Meet Maestro. To learn more about running meets in Meet Maestro, you can see all the articles and a recorded webinar on using Meet Maestro here: this section of our Help Center.
There you will also find articles that explain how to ‘test drive’ Meet Maestro so you can check it out for yourself. An article specific to Virtual Meets will appear in that section very soon. The features are so new that SwimTopia is still developing that content.
Please note: Meet Maestro is included in the price of SwimTopia and is available to you through your SwimTopia website.
Also, GKAISA will be scheduling a special Zoom call with SwimTopia to answer our specific questions regarding our meets.
Thank you, again, for all that you are doing to promote swimming during this uncertain time.
