Our first meet is fast approaching. Tuesday, May 22 will be the close of entries for the East Kentwood Invitational, June 1, Friday at 4:30 pm. After that date, we coaches will not be adding or changing entries. What you choose, is what you will be entered in, so please be careful in your choices and entries. It's not unusual due to typing errors for a parent to enter their 8 year old boy in the 8 year old girls' event, or to mistype and enter your daughter in the 400 IM when you meant the 50 Freestyle.
For those new to this, here's what it might look like:
First we have a meet scheduled. You will find the meet events and information packet available on our Weebly site. Approximately 2 weeks ahead of the meet we will close entries, and you will only be entered in the events you chose and paid for. If payment is not completed, the entries will not be made. The coaches will submit entries to the host team. If you are not sure what to swim, first time around it's best to do the 2 shortest freestyle events, a short backstroke, and perhaps any other event you would like. Most meets limit entries to 4 events, you do not have to swim 4, but it makes sense to me as the coach to swim as many as your wallet and time will allow. If you're not sure what to swim, simply click coaches' choice for each event you wish to enter (so if you want to swim 4 events, you'll need to click coaches' choice at the bottom of 4 separate drop down boxes). Most meets run 3-4 hours.
