Mock Meet & Welcome Back Breakfast
It has been fantastic to see all the swimmers back in the Steveston Pool!
We are excited to kick off our competitive 2022 season on Saturday May 28th with our Mock Meet & Welcome Back Breakfast. The Mock Meet is the ideal time for our new swimmers to gain some valuable meet experience including understanding a Heat Sheet, marshalling, when to enter the water in a race and a chance to dive off the starting blocks! It is also a chance for our parents to learn some new volunteer positions and earn some volunteer hours. Most importantly, it is a chance to be together again as Club and have some fun!
The schedule for Saturday May 28th will be as follows:
7:00 Warm-Up and Cheers
7:30 First Race
The race schedule will be 50 Freestyle, 25 Freestyle, 50 Backstroke, 25 Backstroke, 50 Breaststroke and 50 Fly. All swimmers can swim up to 4 races. The 25M races are for our JD swimmers that are not yet swimming 50M races. The heats will be organized from JD – Senior.
We will also be having our annual Welcome Back Breakfast.
