  • The last day to sign up for meet is the Friday prior to Monday meet or the Monday prior to the Wednesday meet.
  • You can find the “Meet Sign Up” on the Swim Team Section of the Cottonwood Country Club website – which will enable you to sign up for all the meets and plan your schedules accordingly.
  • Towels – 2 to 3 per swimmer
  • Swim Suit, Swim Cap, Swim Goggles
  • Extra Swim Cap and Swim Goggles
  • Team Shirt
  • Sunscreen & Hat
  • Chairs
  • Umbrella for Shade
  • Activities - games, books, etc.
  • Dinner/snacks - you can bring in a cooler and/or bag at most away meets
  • Arrive early and have your own Heat Sheet/Dive Sheet – bring a copy with you from the email and highlight your swimmer’s event number, heat number and lane number, or access it on your smart phone/iPad – this will save you the stress of having to go to the heat sheets posted on the wall to get your heat information. Many swimmers write the Event/heat/lane on hand or leg to easily remember where to be.
  • Watch for your child’s upcoming races, there is an electronic event board in the northeast corner of pool. Kids like to socialize just like you, but try to keep an eye out for what event the meet is on in relation to your swimmer’s next event.
  • Ensure your kids get to their spot behind the starting block in plenty of time for their heat of their event (we suggest walking them over 2-3 heats before their heat). Sometimes events and heats are combined and so the meet suddenly moves ahead quickly.
  • Have Fun and maybe a beverage or two.

The following inclement weather policy will be in place for the 2019 season.

  • Practice for the 2019 Season will be held rain or shine
  • In the event of inclement weather or cold temperatures the team will be doing dry land training/activities
  • Meets can be canceled or postponed due to weather, such as lightning. Unless you get an email or are notified, please just show up to the swim meet even if the weather looks threatening.
  • Each Team is required to staff their own Home Meets, therefore you will be obligated to help staff one (1) home swim/team event per child participating on the team – not to exceed three (3) home swim meets.If your child is on the Dive Team you are obligated to staff (1) Home Dive Meet per family.
  • The Parent Volunteer List will be posted at the pool and on the website prior to all home meets.  This will have the names of all the parents that will be volunteering for that particular meet.
  • Check-in:  Dive - All volunteers need to check in by 3:45 pm.
  • Check-in: Swim - All volunteers need to check in at 4:45 pm to the Meet Coordinator at the officials' table for their assignments.  Jobs include 12 timers, a runner by passing out soft drinks to timers, gathering heat sheets, or passing out ribbons to 6 & under swimmers immediately after their races.
