Sign-up for Ottumwa Meet by Tues, 2/15/11

Ottumwa is hosting a swim meet on Saturday, Feb. 19.  The meet will take place at the Beach in Ottumwa and will begin with warm-ups at 8:15 a.m. and the meet at 9:00 a.m.  The entry list was sent to swim families via e-mail, but if you didn't get a copy or can’t open it, or if you have questions, please let our ASA Meet Coordinator Andrea Maag know.  The Ottumwa meet will be a terrific chance for swimmers of all levels to experience a swim meet in a low-stress situation.  We will compete against five other teams, but it should be pretty informal and fun for everyone. 


There is no entry fee for swimmers at this meet, and they ask that we limit each swimmer to three individual events and two relays.  They will age swimmers up on 12/1/10 for this meet, and relays will swim coed.  There was a bit of confusion at the last meet, so if there is not an age listed for an event, it is an OPEN event and anyone of any age may swim it. For example, events 15-16 are open events.  Swimmers may swim up an age group for relays.  


There are already several ASA swimmers who are interested in competing, but we would like to make sure everyone who wants to go has a chance to get entered.  Please let Andrea Maag know (if you haven’t already) if your swimmer is interested in attending this meet, along with the event numbers of the events he or she wants to compete in, by the evening of Tuesday, Feb. 15, so she can get the entries to Ottumwa on time.
