Home Swim Meet Thursday, June 17th
Good afternoon everyone!
Here is just a little bit of information about our upcoming meet this Thursday, June 17th at our home location, the Civic Center. All entries for swimmers and volunteer positions are now also available on the website and can be signup up for here: ORCA June 17th Swim Meet.
This is a home meet for us so the location is a lot more familiar, thankfully, but this also means we will need a lot more volunteers to make sure everything runs smoothly (Unlike our previous one, but I digress).
Location: Oak Ridge Civic Center - 1403 Oak Ridge Turnpike, Oak Ridge, TN 37830
Warmups: We will warmup at 5:00 P.M. to 5:20 P.M. on the dot because we are the home team so we go first. From 5:20 to 6:00 we will wait around and get comfortable.
Please try your best to be there by around 4:50 so we can immediately hit the pool when 5:00 rolls around.
Volunteers: We will have our volunteer meeting at 6:00 P.M. once all teams have warmed up and get everyone everything they need for this meet to run very easily and be a lot less stressful. Any older children or friends (18+) that you may have with you are always appreciated just in case we have have a small lack of any sort of position.
Meet Start: The Meet is set to begin at or around 6:30 P.M., but depending on how long the volunteer worker briefing goes we could start a little bit before or after that time. This meet should run through at least a little bit faster than our previous one through organization, and I expect us to be finishing up the whole thing around 9:00 P.M..
Entries: I wrote a little note when you sign up any swimmer for their events, but I will reiterate it here. If you are not sure what events to put your swimmer(s) in, just indicate that you plan to attend the meet through the blue text link above and I will fill in what I think they could do well in.
Entries and Volunteer positions will close at 3:00 P.M. on Wednesday June 16th. If you cannot get something through by then please just indicate to me through email that your swimmer(s) plans to attend or you would like to volunteer for any position.
We just need to get all of these events and entries entered to alleviate most of the stress that comes on us and both of the other teams, and avoid the debacle that occurred last meet.
Thank you all so much, I hope to see as many of you as possible this evening at practice and this Thursday at our swim meet!
