Champs Order of Events
Champs practice times are different than the regular season:
8:30-9:30 mites, midgets
9:30-10:30 juniors, inter, seniors
5:00-6:00 mites, midgets
6:00-7:00 juniors, intermediates, seniors
Registration for Champs will be on Thursday, July 20th from 6-7pm. Even if you are not attending Champs (but have qualified), you will still need to attend registration to make sure you get a t-shirt.
The process will be the same as last year - stations.
Station 1: Each swimmer will receive a sheet with their qualified events listed for each category. If your swimmer has qualified in more than four events, coaches will be available to help swimmers decide. Once the swimmer has decided, they record the information on the second sheet. Each event is $2.50. Relays will be paid for by Ashcreek.
Station 2: All qualified swimmers will be receiving a free Ashcreek Champs t-shirt. A mock up of what the t-shirt will look like will be available. Additional tshirts for siblings, parents, and grandparents can be purchased. These are $12.
Also, Heat Sheets can be purchased at this time. These list all the events so swimmers and parents know event number, heat, and lane assigned to the swimmer. The ads are also placed in the back.
Station 3: This will complete the process of registration, because it is where you will pay! So parents, bring your checkbook and swimmers, bring a parent!
