As per The President, Chris Spranger's, email on 28 Jun 16; it is a requirement to wear the team suit at A and B Meets. Please ensure your swimmers are in their team suit and cap. If the swimmers are not in uniform, they will not swim.

Stroke Order

For this meet the order will be: Back, Breast, Fly, Free. The League varies the stroke order throughout the season so that no stroke is neglected due to darkness. Relays will not be swum, however there may be IMs, time permitting.

Setup Locations

Our team's setup area is on the grassy slope overlooking the gazebo. The visiting team will set up on the grass surrounding the gazebo (between the 25m & 50m pools). The café area and the adjacent hill is a communal area.

Snack Bar

Refreshments will be available from the poolside café. No food or drink from home please - it's café rules.


FMST volunteers are essential to make the meet viable - please consider volunteering (

See you there!
