Additional Reminders:


  • Practices will NOT be canceled due to rain, please join our group on Remind for cancellations and updates: https://www.remind.com/join/ptigersh
  • Please do not drop off your swimmer before 7am on practice days, as a safety protocol from the city there will not be a supervised adult to be with your child.
  • CHECK YOUR SWIMMER FOLDERS DAILY!!!!!
  • No congregating in the bathrooms or shower areas.
  • If you have questions regarding swim team, please address board members or coaches (after practice). The pool staff is separate from the team and is unable to answer your questions.
  • Parents, keep clear of the swimming deck during practice times. It is unsafe to try to hold a conversation with a coach while we have swimmers in the water. The same goes for trying to talk to your swimmer during practice. Parents are to remain in the grassy areas or under the awnings of the pool.

OFFICIALS NEEDED

WE NEED OFFICIALS TO RUN MEETS!


This volunteer position is essential to a successful meet. Each meet requires 6 officials making sure the swimmers are correctly swimming their event.


The training is easy and gives you a front row seat to watch your own swimmer. We have all the information you need to become an official. You will also shadow an experienced official at your first meet. With our upcoming home meet, we have an immediate need to fill. Email tigersharks.us@gmail.com for all the training materials.

Away Meet At Pataskala

BIG CHANGE: This meet is now in person and at Pataskala!

Pataskala, OH 43062

What to Bring:


  • Purple competition suit, Tiger Sharks Swim Cap (will have some for sale), goggles, towels, sharpie (to write events on swimmer's arm and name and PTS on swimmer's back)
  • Chairs, extra towels, snacks (concessions available), blankets, tents (personal preference)


Before the Meet:


  • Declare your swimmer by 7pm on Thursday (video how to at the bottom of this email)
  • Sign up to volunteer (video how to at the bottom of this email)
  • Check your email for your swimmer's entries. How to mark your child up for events video at the bottom.
  • Check in your swimmer with our Junior Coaches. Look for them near the fence with the Tiger Sharks banner.



During the Meet:


  • Locate Bullpen numbers near the pool deck, these will tell you what events they are setting up in the bullpen. Bullpen workers will be calling out kids' names but be aware of when they are swimming, so they don't miss it. They will get your children to where they need to be. The bullpen is an area where they will be setting up the swimmers in their lanes several heats prior to their event.
  • After your child swims their events, have them talk to Coach Cara so she can give them pointers on what to work on. BONUS: She will most likely have fun treats to hand out!
  • Please keep your children out of the diving well and other pool areas. The only people who should be in the water are the swimmers in current events.
  • Please do not crowd the timers while you are watching your child swim. They are there to do a job.
  • Take lots of pictures and send them to TigerSharks.us@gmail.com, so we can post them.
  • ENJOY AND HAVE FUN! We are here for the kids!





REMEMBER:

You are representing our team, please behave appropriately and be respectful to the facility and the hosting team.
