Swim Meets

 
Seahorse Swim Meets

1st Saturday Dual Meet – Date/Location TBD
2nd Saturday Dual Meet – Date/Location TBD
Championship Meet - Saturday, August 15, 2020 at the Covington Aquatic Center. Arrive no later than 12:15pm. Warm-up begins at 12:30pm. Races begin at 1:30pm.


Event Participation

Meet entry sheets will be handed out at practice Thursdays, the week prior to a meet and are due the Monday prior to a meet. They can also be emailed!

Dual meets usually last 2-3 hours. The Championship Meet will last longer, due to the presence of 3 teams. Each swimmer can compete in up to four (4) individual events, and may be placed in up to two (2) relay events by their coach; totaling up to six (6) events per swimmer. Not all swimmers will participate in six events. We will need to know ahead of time which swimmers are attending each meet to schedule our events.

It's also very important to let coaches know when a swimmer is leaving early, especially if they are assigned to a relay event. Please keep coaches informed of any changes in your event attendance!

What to Bring to a Swim Meet (hint: you'll need extras of everything):

  • Swimsuits
  • Goggles
  • Team Swim Caps
  • Towels (We recommend two for each swimmer, one for during the meet, one for afterwards)
  • Water and/or Sports Drinks with electrolytes
  • Healthy Snacks
  • Shampoo/Conditioner/Soap and other personal toiletries for afterwards
  • Seahorse t-shirt
  • Comfortable clothing to wear home afterwards
  • Spectators: Wear light comfortable clothing, pool decks can be very warm and humid


Other Important Swim Meet Notes

All Meet Fees (excluding heat sheets if sold by the home team) are included in the Swim Team Registration Fees.

Deck space and spectator seating at pools can be limited; we recommend that you bring folding/camping chairs or seat cushions to away meets if you need more comfortable seating. We also recommend bringing a combination lock to away meets for pool lockers that use combo locks, rather than tokens.
