      • MUST DO: 
        • Swimmers need to check in with coaches pre and post events.
        • Swimmers should be ready to line up for their event 2 events before so that they do not miss their race. Plan to help your swimmer get to events if U10, older swimmers should make it to their events on their own. 
        • Timers - Must be at their lane at the time they signed up for to relieve the current timers. This is the best view of the races and you usually get free food and drinks. 
        • Timmer signups will open Thursday morning at the latest. Watch for a REMIND Announcement.
      • Must Haves - Shade, Chair's, Sunscreen, Goggles, Caps, Towels, SHARPIE, snacks, and LOTS of Water. Lot's More details in the Parent Handbook: https://orovilleorcas.swimtopia.com/new-parent-han...
      • There will food and clothing vendors at this meet for your pleasure.  They typically take VENMO and Cash. 
      • Download Meet Mobile to keep up with the days events and results: https://www.active.com/mobile/meet-mobile-app
      • Ribbons and Medals - Pick up at the tent on site or check the Deck Box at practice early next week. 
      • DQ - Coaches will get DQ slips from officials throughout the day. If the coach didn't see what happened, they may have to wait for the slips (this can take a while). Remember be encouraging to your swimmers but also do not badmouth the Officials. They are all volunteers and dislike giving DQ's and will only give them if it is a clear DQ. 
      • Above all, encourage and cheer on your swimmer and the rest of the ORCA's and HAVE FUN!
