Athlete Check in for Races
-Swimmers will go straight from warm up to lining up for races. Coaches will line up swimmers for all races from the record board pool: girls will be lined along the locker room side and boys along the garage door side (this is for all 3 sessions, all events- all heats will be lined up on the indoor pool deck from the record board end)
-After they finish their first race, swimmers will report back to the coaches at the queing areas to get organized for their next race. After their second race, they are finished and free to leave!
Facility Guidelines / Meet Procedures
- Current facility guidelines for practices are in effect for the meet. Come dressed in swim suits!
- All races will take place in the Scoreboard end pool, however both pools will be used for warm up.
25 yard events start from the bulkhead (divider between the pools) and 50/100 yard events start from the blocks.
- All spectator seating is in the outdoor bleachers. Athletes will flow from warm up to the queing areas at the record board end of the facility to line up for races. The first 2 garage doors at the diving block end is intended to be a "Walk Up/Walk Away" viewing area to allow parents to flow in and out to watch their athletes race. Please assist in this by not standing here for the duration of the meet but allow for a rotation of viewers.
Food Drive! This December we are making a concerted effort to help the local Baton Rouge community and its' Food Bank that is in great need of Non Perishable Items. We have a container onsite already at our Bluebonnet location and it will remain up through our December Meet. We ask, if you can, please donate food to the containers and we will have the Food Bank pick up the week after our meet.
To have even greater participation we are challenging all who participate in our December Meet to bring food on the day of the meet. For all donations on the day of the meet we will record and track. For the group that has the most food donated (in a combination of meet participation and quantity per individual) we will provide a Pizza Party to the group that brings in the most and ranks highest in our calculations. The party will be during the next week. All sites are encouraged to participate and we will provide one overall group winner. If you are unable to compete in the meet, we understand and ask you bring food prior to the meet or send with someone else to help our community. In advance, we thank you!
