Mock Meet – This Saturday

May 24th, 2017 | Posted by kigooswm in Meets - (Comments Off on Mock Meet – This Saturday)
Here is everything you need to know about this Saturday morning:
1)  Schedule:
6:45 –  Sign-in
7:00 – Warm-Up and Cheers
7:30 – First Race
9:00 – Breakfast
10:00 – Finished
The race schedule is 50 Freestyle, 25 Freestyle, 50 Backstroke, 25 Backstroke, 50 Breaststroke, 50 Fly.  All swimmers can swim up to 4 races.  The 25 Metre races are for 6 and Under swimmers and other new swimmers not yet swimming 50 M races.  The heats will be organized from JD – Senior
2)  Volunteering at the Meet:
We have all of our breakfast volunteers covered.  We will need timers and others to assist on Saturday morning.  We won’t do a sign-up in-advance but will recruit parents on the morning.  It is an easy way to get some participation hours.
 
3)  Breakfast Reminders:
The breakfast orders are now closed.  Please bring your own plate and cutlery for breakfast.
4)  Kigoos Swim Shop:
The Kigoos Swim Shop will be open during the entire Mock Meet to distribute the new clothing orders and the remaining club T-shirts/caps.  There will also be an opportunity to sell your recycled swimming paraphernalia at our first Swap Sale.  Please print the attached form and bring in your gently used items at the beginning of the mock meet at 7:20 am.  Then pick up your cash or unsold items at the end of the mock meet at 10:00 am.  Details are on the attached form.
5)  Orientation Tours:
In addition to getting our swimmers some meet experience (we will have marshalling, timing etc.) we want to familiarize our parents with the processes of the meet and answer any questions.  There will be sessions offered on Saturday morning by experienced Kigoos parents.  More info on this to come later today or tomorrow.
Hopefully this answers most of your questions about Saturday.

Salt Spring Island – Time Sensitive

May 24th, 2016 | Posted by kigooswm in Calendar | Meets | Notifier - (Comments Off on Salt Spring Island – Time Sensitive)
We have a bit of a time crunch with planning for the Salt Spring Island Swim Meet as it is two weeks earlier than this year.  This meet is open to swimmers in division 5 and above and their families.  With the scheduling for this year, families would likely take the ferry over on Friday July 8th and return and Sunday July 10th.
For families not attending – there is a local meet at Watermania that weekend.
You must register by this Friday to attend the Salt Spring Island Meet.  Please complete the form on the Swim Meet sign-up page HERE.  Please include your camping plans in the Comments section with total numbers from families attending.  Swimmers cannot go unsupervised.  Parent(s) need to attend, or plans need to be made clear of who is the parent-designate for the swimmer for the weekend.
We need this information to make camping and ferry arrangements.
If you have any questions – please contact Zoë at zoestronge@gmail.com

Mock Meet This Saturday!

May 28th, 2015 | Posted by kigooswm in Meets | Notifier - (Comments Off on Mock Meet This Saturday!)
The Mock Meet is this Saturday morning and we have more than 150 breakfasts ordered!  It will be a busy morning – and so great we will have such a huge turnout.
We would like all swimmers to sign-in at 6:45 AM.  After cheers the first race starts at 7:40 AM.
The Mock Meet isn’t just for the swimmers anymore!
 All new parents are encouraged to attend and take part in the morning’s events.You can also earn partent participation hours!   Please meet on the bleachers at 7:30am (directly after the kids finish cheers). This is an excellent opportunity to get an inside look at what goes on during a swim meet, learn how and where to get your volunteer hours, and ask all those questions that you’ve been dying to ask. New Parent Coordinator Rosemary Nygard will walk you through it all.
You can expect to learn (among other things):
1. Food for meets – what to bring, what’s provided.
2. What else to bring to meets.
3. Our Icebreaker Meet, what to expect.
4. What to expect from other meets.
5. Checking in with coaches re: what meet days to attend, Junior Development meets, etc.
6. General Q&A and much more.
If you have already signed up to help Nancy with the waffle breakfast, don’t worry, we’ll make sure you get to her in time.
For our experienced parents – please check in with your kids at 6:45 AM for volunteer duties helping with the food and / or the running of the meet.
