Meet Information

WHAT TO EXPECT AT MEETS

HOME MEET INFO


Athletes will meet at the Nat after school or when designated by coach. Make sure you have food for before the meet and during. Gatorade is provided on deck for CHS athletes. Ensure that you have all of your equipment to compete.


TRAVEL MEETS


Athletes will meet at the Nat after school or when designated by coach. Have your swim bags packed and ready to go. Make sure you have food, snacks, and drinks.


Athletes are expected to travel to/from the meets on the bus with the team. Bring a pillow and blanket for added comfort!


Coaches will advise athletes who will be traveling to each meet. If there is an overnight travel meet, then your athlete MUST have a completed Overnight Travel Form returned to the CHS Swim & Dive mailbox outside of the pool doors BEFORE they get on the bus.


If there are any expenses associated with the specific travel meet, not covered by other means, then it will become the responsibility of the athlete. You will be notified prior to the meet.



WHAT IS THE STOTAN?


The Stotan has been a long-time New Year's Eve tradition for our athletes. They complete a grueling series of swimming and running events, finishing off with a Smoothie Bar, provided by the CHS Swimming and Diving Booster Club and parents.


This is a great way to push your boundaries as the year comes to a close.  


HIGH SCHOOL STATE - HOW DO I GET TO GO?


This is a qualifier meet which means the Sectional Champion of  each  event automatically attends. Any swimmer who makes the Auto-Cut for that event will also attend. Your next opportunity is an at-large position. If there are any spots available after the Sectional Champion and the Auto-Cuts, then the spots are fill by taking the next fastest swimmer in the state until all at-large spots are filled.


Coaches make the final decision on who swims in prelims and finals of all relays, regardless of who swam the finals heat in Sectionals.


After Sectionals, divers will compete in Regionals, then State depending on their final standings. 


Overnight Travel Forms must be received BEFORE the athletes leave the school. Place in the CHS Swim & Dive mailbox outside the pool doors.


Athletes are leaving Thursday after school. They will compete both Friday and Saturday (if make finals). They are excused from school.


Tickets for this meet are available at www.ihsaa.com following Sectionals. Tickets go FAST so call early if you want a reserved seat, otherwise bleacher seats can be purchased the day of the meet.
