Our coaching staff needs for all our NVAL Championship swimmers to enter online by this THURSDAY (how to enter online detailed below) for 3 important reasons-
1--So we know who's going so we can prepare them properly.
2--So we can confer and put together the fastest possible relays.
3--So we know how many officials we need to have on deck so our swimmers can get awarded.
When you've entered online, please let me know so I can write it on our list.
If you have a problem entering online, please let me know asap, and I will help you (it is actually fairly easy-average time to enter one swimmer is 9 minutes.
Entering online is the wave of the future, saves time, and is much more accurate.
Here are the steps----
2-choose "2014 NVAL Swim Championship Redding Aquatic Center"
3-Click "Online Meet Entry"
4 On User ID screen you can click "create account", "Registered OME user", or, "NOT Registered OME user". All will take you to "Enter Meets".
5-Click "Enter Swimmer" on bottom of page. Put in Registration number (6 digit date of birth, 1st 3 letters of first name, middle initial, and first 4 letters of last name), and hit "Enter"
6-Click on "best times" in boxes for each event you want to enter. The computer will then extract and post the best time your kid has swum.
****Enter ALL your kids
7-After all swimmers are entered hit "Save" at the bottom of the screen.
8-Put in credit card info (totally safe)
9-Print confirmation page (you should also receive an email).
The coaches are asking all 11-12 swimmers who can do a legal I.M. to enter the 200 I.M. instead of the 100 (better chance of winning a ribbon).
Everybody 11 and up should enter the 500 free (if you've never done it, enter 8:30). If you think not, do let your kid's coach know.
All 6 and unders should enter the 100 free.
A bigtime thanks to Kim Baldree for listing how to enter online, and for making a tidy profit at the Swamp Party snack bar. Hats off to Ted and Sherry James for spearheading a most fun and successful Swamp Monster Relay meet. Our kids dug it. Marc
