Swim Meet Sign Ups

Every swim meet will have a “line up”. This indicates which event and heat your child will be swimming. On the team website, (www.riverglenswimteam.com) you can sign your swimmers up for each meet (as well as sign up for volunteer positions.)  Please check off your child’s name if they will be swimming for each meet. It is very important to follow this procedure because your child will not be in the “line up” if their name is not checked off on the meet roster. The deadline to sign up for a meet is 11am the day before the meet.

If you have not signed up for a meet, but are able to attend, you may swim if there is an available spot. It is our goal to have a fair and accurate line up for every meet.
