The first swim meet can be overwhelming for kids and parents. Here are some tips to make the first meet go smoothly for you and your child.
What To Bring
Navigating The Swim Meet
One of the most helpful things you can do as a new swim parent is to talk to a seasoned swim parent. A fellow parent who can answer questions and help you through your first meet will go a long way toward maximizing your meet experience!
And as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to a Team Rep (Alison Dalton or Bobby Lindauer) or any of our coaches.
In the case of thunderstorms or other adverse weather conditions during SouthPark Swim League swim meets, the safety of swimmers and parents is always the first priority. Clearing the pool and the pool deck is at the discretion of the home team's lifeguards/pool management, in cooperation with Team Representatives from each team. If a storm prevents the start of at meet at the regularly scheduled time, Team Reps can elect to postpone the start to a later time in the morning/evening, if weather forecasts indicate that a storm will pass. In addition, if a meet already in progress is suspended due to thunderstorms or other inclement weather, the goal is always to wait and consult with weather forecasts, and to re-commence the meet once the weather clears. Calling off a meet (either ending early or postponing the conclusion to another day) is always the last resort.
