Championship Meet Info - PLEASE READ

    Sea Raiders,

    This email contains some important information so please read thoroughly.

    I want to thank everyone who is attending championships.  This is our biggest culminating meet and so much fun for our swimmers!  Championships are a DUSO tradition and we are so happy to have it back this year.  

    As always there will be a team parade and our theme is 101 Dalmatians.  I have purchased some cute ears, bowties and tails for our younger swimmers to wear, along with some Dalmatian temporary tattoos.  Swimmers may also chose to plan their own fun Dalmatian themed attire.  

    What to expect:  It will be a long day.  The entire Red Hook Team will be under one tent, mini pop up tents are not allowed.  Parents and swimmers should bring the following items in addition to their regular swim gear:

    • camp chair(s)
    • blankets/sleeping bags
    • cards, legos, crafts, etc.  (things to do between races)
    • coolers (water, drinks, snacks, sandwiches, etc.)
    • sunscreen
    • hand sanitzer

    Schedule & Things to Know:

    Parking/Drop-off - Parking lot will open at 6:00am. The drop off area is located at the main entrance of the pool.

    Bathrooms – The County has asked that we limit the use of the bathrooms at the pool facility and utilize port-a-potties as we have in the past. There will be hand sanitizer outside of the port-a-potties and teams are welcome to bring some of their own to keep at your tent. We will provide bathroom passes for those that are volunteering, and for handicap use. Swimmers will NOT be able to use the bathrooms.

    Volunteers - Each volunteer will get a printed label to be worn when on deck. This will help officials to be clear with who should be on deck for the safety of our swimmers. This label can also be used as their bathroom pass during the meet.

    Apparel Sales – A representative from The Deep End will be located under the pavilion.

    Concessions- Food and Beverages will be available through County Pool Concessions. We are working on having a small concessions stand provided by Seahawks.

    Championship races will be using a touch pad, as well as two timers. Swimmers will be seeded slowest to fastest. We will be using 5 lanes.

    There are NO TECH SUITS allowed in DUSO Meets.

    I will be down in New Paltz on Thursday picking up parking passes for our coaches, officials and board members.  I will also be getting bathroom passes for those signed up to volunteer.  Erin Daniels and I will be handing out bathroom passes Saturday morning. Volunteers should check in with us.
