On Monday, June 26, we will visit the Three Chopt Tsunamis for our first away meet! The meet start time is 6:30 pm; you should arrive about 60 min early to get settled and be ready for warmups. The theme for the meet is Minions, so dress accordingly!
The meet will be at Three Chopt Recreation Club, located at 2100 Skipwidth Rd, 23294. There will be some parking within the pool grounds, as well as up the street at the school and Church. Church parking is only in the front, as they need the back area for their meetings. You may park right on Skipwith Road, facing Parham Road. Please take caution crossing the street. A police officer will be there to assist if needed.
The Ridgetop seating area is on the left side as you enter the pool area, as well as the baby pool area. The grill will be open, where $8 per plate gets you a choice of an entrée, 2 sides, chips or cookies and a drink! In addition the snack bar will provide a host of yummy treats. A bake sale table, located by the bathrooms will sell bags of goodies for a $1.00. Also, Kona Ice will be on site for a yummy cool treat.
Please review the list of swimmers who will NOT be attending the meet for accuracy. Please email the coach if this is in error. The list includes the “non-responders,” those who have not told me whether or not they are participating in the meet. If your plans change at the last minute, it is imperative that you email the coach AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Obviously unexpected things can happen, but foreseeable last minute cancellations cause disruption of the lineup and buddy list and are disrespectful of your teammates and coaches.
Below is the current meet lineup and buddy list, as of 8pm on June 24. Be aware that there can be late changes due to last minute cancellations, so don’t forget to verify the events at the meet.
Even experienced swimmers and swim parents could benefit from reading pages 8-11 in the swim team handbook about swim meet routines and procedures, as well as this post about how the coaches determine meet line-ups.
