Below is the TENTATIVE timeline for the meet on Thursday. There will be an open warm-up from 7-8:50 a.m. At 8:30 a.m. the competition boards will close to the ladies competing in the first event. The gentlemen may continue practicing on the non-competition side of the pool. There will be 30 minute warm-ups in between events.
Girls 1-5A - 37 divers, 9-11:50 a.m.
Boys 1-5A - 35 divers, 12:20-3:00 p.m.
Girls 6A - 39 divers, 3:15-6:10 p.m.
Boys 6A - 30 divers, 6:40-9:15 p.m.
We typically run anywhere from 20-50 minutes ahead of the timeline...but as you all know anything can happen. You may notice that the 6A meet is scheduled to begin at 3:15 p.m. but the timeline shows the 1-5A meet finishing at 3 p.m. Should we in fact run true to the timeline then the 6A meet will begin at 3:30 p.m. I will allow the 6A girls at least 30 minutes of warm-up time prior to their event. Again, we should be ahead of schedule so this should not be an issue but just in case I wanted you to be aware. Also be aware that the all non-competition boards will be closed during competition. Warm-ups will only be allowed in between events. Therefore, any of the 6A divers arriving at 1 p.m. can expect that they will not be able to get on the boards until the 1-5A competition is finished.
I know that many of you from 6A will be concerned if there isn't enough warm-up time prior to the 6A events. I assure you that 30 minutes is PLENTY of time for a warm-up. Again, this is a warm-up and not a practice. A warm-up should only take about 15-20 minutes. A prepared diver will not need more than that.
