What to bring

Please be aware what time the meet starts and what time warm up is.  Warm up is 1 hour before the racing starts, and all swimmers need to arrive 20 min before warm up

For those who are new to swim meets. Here’s a list of items to bring for the meet.

  • At least two towels
  • Water bottle (should be drinking throughout the day)
  • Swimsuit (and a spare)
  • Goggles (2 pairs – in case one breaks)
  • Swim Cap (2 – in case one breaks)
  • Team Gear – t-shirt
  • Shorts or track pants, tuque (important to stay dry and warm)
  • Flip-flops or other deck shoes
  • Food – bananas, sandwiches, cut up fruit, crackers, etc – preferably foods that are easily digestible and healthy. Nothing deep fried or high in fat (it takes too long to digest and can upset your stomach during racing)
  • An activity to keep entertained between races – while electronics are permitted, please consider whether you are willing to risk  your electronic device – the pool deck is a busy (and wet) place.
