Congratulations on a great day of swimming! Thank you for all of your hard work in getting your swimmers to the clerk of course and helping to keep the meet running.

Please remind your parents to bring chairs, blankets, snacks, games, etc. for swimmers in the tents.

Also, please remind your parents and swimmers that there are to be NO POP-UP TENTS.

And, remind your teams that chairs, coolers, etc. may not be placed on the sidewalks. We must KEEP THE SIDEWALKS CLEAR for foot traffic and emergency vehicles.


Events will be called three times, and swimmers should be in the Clerk of Course tent by the 3rd call. Once a swimmer has reported to Clerk of Course, they should remain there unless excused by the Head Clerk. Failure to report to Clerk of Course on time will constitute a scratch from the event. If a swimmer misses a heat, then he or she will not be allowed to swim in another heat, absent permission from the Meet Referee.


All Meet Workers should attend the Meet Worker Meeting at 8:20 tomorrow. First shift worker should report to the worker check-in table before the worker meeting and should be at their stations prior to the start of the Meet. Second shift workers should report to their stations by 11:00 am.

Shifts cannot be split or shared. When a worker shift ends, the worker should exit the pool deck or other area and return to the stands or to the team tent.


Coach check-in will occur in the upper concourse (diving well end) at noon. Please be sure that you pick up your coaches’ packet. The coaches packet will contain heat sheets for your coaches to share and your relay cards.

Wristbands must be worn all weekend and cannot be removed.


We have a very limited number of passes available for purchase each day, first-come first-served. Cost per pass is $20.

Free parking is available at the Metron Center across Kingston Pike (approximately 1 mile away). Shuttle service will NOT be provided.
