We are hosting a time trial swim meet for all Riptides swimmers during regular practice hours on Monday, December 17 from 3:30 to 6:00 pm. This is an opportunity for swimmers to try some of the long distance events that are not always offered at swim meets. It is also a chance to qualify for the Alberta Age Group Trials Championships in February by achieving a Meet Qualifying Standard.
At this meet, swimmers in the 10&U category can qualify in the 100 IM, 200 IM, or 400 free, while swimmers that are 11 or older can qualify in the 200 IM, 400 free, 800 free, or 1500 free. Here are the Alberta Provincial Meet Qualifying Standards.
Warm-ups are from 3:30 to 4:25 pm and the meet will run from 4:30 to 6:00 pm. We need parents to help out as timers and stroke and turn judges. Please sign up for a shift here – http://volunteersignup.org/PHCRB.
Thanks to Lockie Lister, who is returning as our meet referee.
The swim meet will be followed by our annual Christmas party upstairs at the Rec Centre in Lady MacDonald Hall from 6 pm to 7:30 pm. Details to follow by email.
