On Monday, June 29, Ridgetop will be visiting the Richmond Country Club for another away meet! The club is on the north side of Rt 6 (Patterson Avenue) west of Rt 288 and Rt 6 intersection; the address to use for GPS is 12950 Patterson Avenue, Richmond, VA 23233. Swimmers should plan to be on deck by 5:45pm to be ready for warmups. The meet starts at 6:30pm. The theme for the meet — getting ready for the holiday weekend! — is 4th of July.
The pool is on the left driving in, past the tennis courts. Unfortunately, club rules prohibit bringing food from the outside into the Aquatic complex. However, food will be available from the snack bar. You may want to bring a chair. There will be pool chairs available, but you never know. Feel bring to bring pop up tents to set up on the grassy areas around the pool.
Please review the list of swimmers who will NOT be attending the meet for accuracy. If you are not attending this meet and your name is not on this list, it is imperative that you email the coach AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Foreseeable last minute cancellations cause disruption of the lineup and buddy list and are disrespectful of your teammates and coaches.
Be aware that there can be late changes due to last minute cancellations, so don’t forget to verify the events at the meet. The most likely change would be to a relay; if anyone’s individual events are affected I will attempt to contact them by email.
Even experienced swimmers and swim parents could benefit from reading pages 22-23 in the swim team handbook about swim meet routines and procedures, as well as this post about how the coaches determine meet line-ups.
