7/1/20: Bandits Virtual Swim Meets



Aquatics Update



Swim Meets will look a little different this summer due to COVID19.

All our meets this summer will follow a virtual format, i.e., the teams we are swimming against will be swimming in their own pools, and we will compare times once both teams have completed swimming. 

In an effort to simplify the meet schedule this summer, we will run all of our meets on Tuesday mornings. Swimmers aged 11 & over will compete first, from 8:30 to 10:00, while those aged 10 & under will compete second, from 10:00 to 11:30. This will allow for social distancing and prevent the pool area from being overcrowded.

Here is the schedule:

  • Tuesday July 7 vs Roton Point

  • Tuesday July 14 vs Shore & CC

  • Tuesday July 21 vs Riverside YC

  • Tuesday July 28 vs Milbrook CC

  • Tuesday August 4 Division Championships (Tentative)

We will use the League Management system again this summer to sign children up for these meets. The email queries will start tomorrow for next week’s meet, and then every Wednesday for the following week. Please respond to these emails by clicking Available or Not available. You will keep getting them every day until you respond!

More details will come at the end of the weekend about our first meet on Tuesday! For now, what is important is that every swimmer who is signed up as available will get to swim 3 official individual races, which is the maximum allowed by league rules per meet. 

Please email me with any questions about the meet format or schedule.

Go Bandits!!!!
