Swim Meet 101

SAIL Swim Meet Primer (includes overview and stroke explanation)

Before the Meet:
Write your child's events (event #,heat #,and stroke style)on their forearm with a sharpie marker. To find their events go to swimtopia, choose the “sign up calendar” tab and click on the grey “meet entry” button. Boy events are odd #’s, girl events are even #’s. Also, the free version of the swimtopia app will give you a list of all your children's events in order.cPlease tell your swimmers to pay attention to which events they are swimming and for them to be near the tent when it is close to their event.

What to bring:

  • Team Suit
  • Goggles
  • Swim cap
  • Towel
  • Folding Beach Chair
  • Water Bottle
  • Bolt Buddy Gift (snack, drink, note)

When to Arrive:
Home Meets: Swimmers to arrive by 4:00pm. Warm ups start at 4:15pm. Parent volunteers check in at 5:00pm. Meet starts at 5:30pm.
Away Meets: Bring your swimmers to the competing pool at approximately 4:30 pm.

Team Tent:
All the swimmers sit together under our Bolts team tent. Volunteer Tent Parents help manage the swimmers and get them to the Clerk of Course for their events on time. Here are a handy set of Tent Parent Tips for you! 

Parent Roles:
Each family is expected to fill two volunteer slots per meet. One parent can work the entire meet, or two parents each work half. Please try to take at least one SAIL test this season. Here are a few volunteer positions that are greatly needed each meet. 

Clean up: 
All hands on deck please! The faster we do this, the faster we can relax and let the kids have some fun time in the pool!

All SAIL events are alcohol-free. No drinking is allowed inside or outside of the gate or at away meets. Thanks for keeping your coolers at home and your Yeti's full of water.

Concessions helps support our team. Please purchase from concessions. We'll have Venmo available as well as cash sales. We'll also post the menu for each meet. 

Inclement Weather:
Cancellations will be announced via remind message(to sign up text @swimbolts to 81010).In the event of lightning or thunder during a meet, the pool will be vacated for the amount of time set by DHEC. Swimmers will wait on the pool deck.
