Meet #6 Info: Avalon @ Ridgetop

On Monday, July 18, Ridgetop will be hosting Avalon to close out the regular season. The meet start time is 6pm and you should arrive about 60 min early to get settled and be ready for warmups. The theme for the meet is Tie-Dye, so prepare accordingly!

We will have an official buddy list this meet! Since it is a home meet, the coaches encourage you to make creative (tie-dye colored?) posters to cheer on your buddy. Pre-teamers will be participating in this meet in the 25 freestyle. They are the youngest and least-experienced team members, so everyone needs to encourage and congratulate them (especially their older buddies, of course).

This is Senior Night, when we will honor our swimmers who graduated from high school. They are: Alexis Biltz, Harrison Carr, Ian Fraser, Anna Gilliam, Mitchell Green, Marina Leino, Ryley Ogden, Charlie Prideaux, Zoe Trenz. What an impressive group! Please make an effort to cheer extra hard for these swimmers in the meet. As part of the festivities (!), we will be having a parent relay and a coaches relay.

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.

Be aware that there can be late changes due to last minute cancellations, so don’t forget to verify the events at the meet.


Don’t forget to enter the “Ducks for Bucks” raffle!

As usual, there will be a number of fundraising events at this meet: the Ducks for Bucks raffle, Kona Ice, food from Chick-Fil-A and Quiznos, and the bake sale. Money spent on these items benefit the swim team! Please consider bringing baked goods to sell at the meet.

Even experienced swimmers and swim parents could benefit from reading pages 9-11 in the swim team handbook about swim meet routines and procedures, as well as this post about how the coaches determine meet line-ups.
