The IMX/IMR Meet is here! You should be very excited! We coaches sure are!

Below is a brief checklist of things necessary to make the meet run smoothly. PLEASE look at each one and attend to it ahead of time:

1. Print your heat sheets, please. They will not be available at the meet. Here is the link to get it.


2. We still need volunteers, especially Sat and Sun afternoon session. If you have not signed up yet or have questions, please click here.


3. Be Early...Be Excited! Your Team WUTS begins 15-20 minutes before we hit the water for warm up.

4. Wear your STINGRAYS Gear! Caps, tattoos and car magnets will be sold at concessions, too.

5. Sunday morning, 7:00am Devotional just outside the back door. All are welcome! Dress warmly!

Bring your best, Stingrays! You are ready to race strong and cheer on your team! Congratulate the lanes next to you after each race because racing them makes you go faster.
