Swim Meet Information:

  • Team warm-ups will begin at 5:30 pm. Please plan on arriving at 5:00 pm to have your swimmers ready to get in the water promptly at 5:30 pm.
  • Swimmers should proceed directly to their Ready Bench (Look for our yellow tents) before warm-ups to be checked in. If your child is not there by 5:30 pm, they will be pulled from any relays they were scheduled to swim. Please note that failing to show for Relays can result in 3 other swimmers who showed up on time not being allowed to swim and your child being pulled from relays for future meets. Please be considerate of others.
  • Swimmers must wear their team suits. Plain black, one-piece swimsuit.
  • The official meet will begin at 6:00 pm. The ending time will vary based on many factors, and some swimmers may be finished earlier than others. Your Ready Bench parents can let you know what event your swimmer’s final event for the day will be. Do not leave without knowing that your child is finished swimming and that the Ready Bench parent knows you are taking them.
  • The meet begins with freestyle relays, freestyle, and then backstroke. All swimmers in all age groups will compete in freestyle and backstroke. 6&U's do not swim any events following backstroke. We are limited to fewer heats for IMs, breaststroke, and butterfly. The meet concludes with the Medley Relay.
