Frequently Asked Questions about Swim Meets...
1. When are the Westchester Swim Team Meets?
Our dual meets begin at 6:00 in the evening every Tuesdays and Thursdays. For home
meets, swimmers should report to the Westchester Pool at 4:30 p.m. For away meets, swimmers should report to
the away meet pool at 5:00 p.m.
2. What should my swimmer bring to a meet?
Swimmers should bring the obvious essentials--swimsuit, towel, cap and
goggles if desired. Since the meets are in the evening, swimmers may
also want to bring a sweatshirt/jacket and pants in case it gets cool.
Swimmers will be asked to sit in one area or “camp” and they may want to
bring an old sleeping bag or extra towel to sit on. Snacks and a water
bottle or drink are a must. Since there will be “down time” between
events, swimmers should bring along cards or a book to occupy the time.
3. What shouldn’t my swimmer bring to a meet?
Leave behind the obvious--crabby attitudes and poor sportsmanship,
along with anything that may be valuable, such as Game Boys, etc. The
camp area gets wet from all the traffic, so swimmers are advised not to
bring anything they don’t want to lose or get damaged.
4. Okay, while we’re on the subject of “stuff”, what should parents bring to a meet?
Unless scheduled to work a meet, parents may want to bring a lawn
chair and snacks. Extra change will also be popular, because every pool
(including ours!) has a concession stand! Siblings of our swimmers are
more than welcome as well as grandparents, friends and fans.
6. What’s the schedule for a swim meet?
During the warm-up period, swimmers will be told what events they will
be swimming for that meet. There are 76 events, broken down by age
group, stroke and individual or relay activity. Our Kids’ Organizers
will assist the coaches by getting the swimmers ready for each event.
It’s important for our swimmers to stay in the camp area and not wander
off--they may miss their event! Typically each swimmer will be entered
into 3-4 events per meet. Dual meets generally last between 2 1/2 - 3 hours.
7. What recognition do swimmers receive?
Those swimmers who place as a top finisher will receive a ribbon.
Ribbons will be placed in a swimmer’s family mail box the next practice
day after a meet. Our coaches also track time improvement and will
periodically recognize swimmers for their efforts.
8. Where are the swim meets held?
of our meets are home meets at the Westchester pool and half are away.
