Meet Preparations

Swim meets can last up to four hours, and are held come rain or shine! Meets are only canceled for thunder or lightning. Temperatures can vary greatly during a meet, so be prepared for all weather variations.

Items you need to bring, or consider, as you prepare for a meet:

  1. Team suit and a back-up suit – marked with the swimmer's name for easy identification (Tip: use one suit for warm ups, and then change your dry team suit to stay comfortable until your event. Suits must be the team suit or all black for competition. Any suit will work for warm ups)
  2. Team cap (Tip: caps are optional for competition. If you choose to wear a cap, it must be the team cap or all black)
  3. Goggles and back up goggles (Tip: goggles are optional. If goggles often fall off after the start, try goggles under the cap )
  4. Lots of towels- A good rule is to have one towel per event plus one extra. (Tip: For this meet, plan on 3 towels per swimmer)
  5. Sharpie - All swimmers must have their swimmer ID written largely on their shoulder/upper back. (Tip: to stay organized write your event, heat, lane, and stroke on your forearm. Any buddy, board member, or seasoned swimmer can help with this)
  6. Sunscreen (Tip: Be mindful of sunscreen on the face as it often makes goggle and caps slippery for swimmers)
  7. Warm clothes - Sweats, swim parka, rain jacket (Tip: for new swimmers, a snow coat and hand warmers are perfect)
  8. Blanket(s) - (Tip: Can also work as an extra towel)
  9. Folding chair(s) - Both home and away pools do not have enough seating to support all the spectators (Tip: Set up away from the pool deck and go to the pool deck when you swimmer swims to watch and cheer them on for their race and then return to your set up spot)
  10. Entertainment - Cards, books, other items to pass time while waiting at the meet (Tip: swimmer favorites have been Uno, Spot It, TacoCatGoatCheesePizza, Coloring books. Electronics are not ideal)
  11. Canopy/tent - Great for all weather, sun or rain. Please try and share/coordinate with other Gator families.
