North Coast Aquatics has provided the following information regarding this weekend’s ABC All Ages North Meet to be held at Alga Norte pool in Carlsbad:

Notes:  We will not swim any relays (coaches voted not to extend the timeline).  The 500 free, 1650 free and 400 IM will all require swimmers to provide timers.  I know it didn’t say the 400 IM but I don’t want any teams to have to cover for that event.  Alga Norte will provide the physical counters (you just need to supply the body!)
Tarps:  You can all set up under the existing shaded area on deck behind the diving boards.  You do not need tarps unless you want to set up out in the sun.

Estimated Meet Timeline:

  • Friday – starts at 5:00 pm; ends approximately 7:50 pm (miles start at 6:05)
  • Saturday AM session starts at 8:30 am; ends approximately 11:30 am
  • Saturday afternoon session starts at 1:00 pm; ends approximately 6:35 pm (400 IM starts at 6:00)
  • Sunday AM session starts at 8:30 am; ends approximately 10:55 am
  • Sunday afternoon session starts at 12:30 pm; ends approximately 6:25 pm (500s start at 5:07)
