Vikings 2019 “Blue and White” Meet

May 12, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

The Vikings Annual Blue and White Meet is our first social event of the summer swimming season. ALL Vikings (swimmers, parents, executive, coaches) are invited (and strongly encouraged to attend)!

  • When: Sunday May 12, 2019 from 8 – 11 am
  • Where: St. George’s Senior School (pool, Maclean Hall and Room 115).

The event offers something for everyone:  fun, friendly competition, new parent swim meet training (e.g. who all those people in white shirts are, standing on the deck; how to time a swim race), an opportunity to meet your executive and group coaches and to make connections with other families and, of course, yummy treats! All swimmers will be getting in the pool, so please make sure to bring your suit, goggles and a towel.

The schedule for the morning is as follows:

  • 8 am: Parents drop off potluck food items 
  • 8 – 10 am: Swimmers are in the pool
  • 8:15ish – 9:30 / 10 am: NEW parents attend Timing Clinic in Room 115; all other parents socialize, check out clothing in Maclean Hall, or watch swimmers
  • 10 – 11 am:  Feast and meet your coaches in Maclean Hall!

Meet Your Coaches

After the meet, Group Coaches will meet with their swimmers and parents to share their coaching philosophy, season plan and more. It will also be an opportunity for you to ask questions!

Team Aquatic on Site

Team Aquatic Supplies will once again be at this year’s Blue & White Meet, in Maclean Hall. TAS will also have swim goggles, fins, pull buoys, snorkels, and other equipment for sale, so if your kid has grown over the winter or simply needs some extra or new gear, this will be the perfect opportunity to get everything you need for the season! Payment for these items must be made to TAS directly; TAS will accept payment by credit cards for these items.

Viking Clothing

Our VIK Clothing Committee (Sarah, Suzanne and Mina) will also be at the B&W in Maclean Hall with sample VIK apparel to check out and try on for size.
