REMEMBER WE NEED EVERYONE TO BE AT THE MEET WHO IS SUPPOSED TO BE THERE! (Even if you're not feeling very well) 


FRIDAY swimmers should eat a good dinner of pasta at about 3:00.  SATURDAY swimmers should eat a good dinner on Fri. (pasta is best), a good breakfast, be on time, and don't eat much during the meet.  Save it for afterwards. Bring water to the meet; you should absolutely have NO POP.  Bring simple games, NOT video games or things that might get stolenWHERE WE GATHER IS NOT AN AREA TO HORSE AROUND IN! Do not bring balls to play catch with.  It is a good idea to shave the tops of your arms and thighs. SWIM CAPS will be handed out when you check in prior to warm ups or bring your personalized cap. If you bought a personalized cap we will not have a regular cap for you.
