GKAISA News and Notes: City Meet Updates

Team Reps and Head Coaches,

We are so excited for the GKAISA Championship Meet tomorrow when we welcome our 10-Under swimmers! Here are some things to keep in mind…


Your tents should be ready tomorrow when your team arrives. Please see the attached tent map to confirm your location. There will be a trash can located in each tent. Please be sure that all trash is placed in the trash can at the end of each day. ALSO, please be sure that you keep the sidewalks clear for emergency vehicles.


We will have the check-in for the coaches from Noon until 12:20 tomorrow. Please check-in as a team. At that check-in, you will receive your coaches packets, which will include the Coaches Information, Heat Sheets for your coaches, relay cards, and relay card duplicates. You will also be required to check in and get your wrist band for the weekend. If you have a coach that will be swimming on Friday, you will need to alert the check-in person to get a special wristband. Those swimmer/coaches will not be allowed on deck until swimming their events out of fairness to the other competitors.

Coaches will meet for the Coaches’ Meeting at 12:30 pm in the Hospitality Room. All coaches must attend this meeting.

Relay cards will be given to you in the coaches packets. It is your responsibility to enter the names and order of swimmers in that event and then turn them in to the Clerk’s table at the designated time. Once cards have been turned in to the Clerk, the names and order may not be changed unless approved by the Meet Referee. Cards will be given to the swimmers in the Clerk of Course tent prior to the event, and the swimmers must give the completed card to the timer at the block prior to their heat.


Warm-up session will begin at 1:00 pm. Please be sure that your swimmers are ready for warm-ups. For the safety of our swimmers, diving during warm-ups can only occur is your swimmers are swimming one-way and then exiting the pool.


The Head Officials Meeting will occur in the hallway outside the Meet Management Room at 2:00 pm.


ALL team workers and skilled workers should report to the Clerk of Course tents at 2:10 to check-in for the meeting. At that check-in, First Session workers will receive wristbands, and all workers will receive job instructions. Second session Meet Workers should check in between 4:30 and 4:45 pm.


Events lining up and events in the water will be broadcast on GKAISA radio at 88.1 and via Twitter at @GKAISAOfficial.


Heat Sheets will be sold in the ticket booth, beginning at 12:30 tomorrow. Cost is $10 per Heat Sheet. Cash and credit card accepted.


The weather looks perfect for the next three days. Remember to bring plenty of water and sunscreen. We cannot wait to see you tomorrow!

Happy Swimming!
