A-meet 3: CAS@FM - Saturday 07/09 - line-up and meet info

FMST Parents,

This Saturday's home A-meet is going to be an extremely close competition - only a few points will separate Cascades and FMST. This is our meet to win, and we have a good chance, but to do so we need EVERY swimmer to give it their all. If we can win an extra relay or two, and score some additional points in a few individual events, we WILL win the meet.

The line-up was sent out via Google Groups on Thursday night. If your swimmer is on the line-up, but is not available, please advise me ASAP.

Please note:

  • At the meet, ensure your swimmer gets to their event. We cannot afford any empty lanes.
  • Cheering is they key - especially during the relays. Please stay until the end and loudly cheer your team to a win.
  • Don't forget the Hawaiian theme for Saturday;
  • Volunteers are essential - please consider volunteering (; and

Remember - no training Friday for A-meet swimmers. If you have young exhibition swimmers that do not train on Wednesday, you may bring them to training on Friday.
