HOW TO MARK-UP A SWIMMER FOR A MEET

Locate your swimmer on the Events by Athlete report.

Here is how to read the Events by Athlete report:

For Example:

Wilson, Carter

#7 Girls 11-12 200 Medley Relay (3)2:21.321/5

#29 Girls 11-12100 FreeNT1/5

#81Girls 11-12200 Free Relay (4)2:05.821/5

#7 is the Event Number

(3) in the Medley Relay means Carter will swim 3rd and her stroke is Butterfly (see NOTES below)

1/5 means she will swim HEAT 1 in LANE 5

(4) in the Free Relay means she will swim 4th (or last) in the relay

Using the Events by Athlete report and a Sharpie marker, create the chart below on your swimmer’s arm or leg:

Carter’s chart will look like this:

EVENT HEAT LANE STROKE
7 1 5 Med Relay – FLY (3)
29 1 5 100 Free
81 1 5 200 Free Relay (4)

NOTES:

  • For the INDIVIDUAL MEDLEY (IM), the order of strokes is Butterfly, Back, Breast, Freestyle.
  • For the MEDLEY RELAY the order is as follows:

Swimmer 1 (Backstroke)Swimmer 2 (Breast)

Swimmer 3 (Butterfly)Swimmer 4 (Freestyle)

  • Typically at home meets, MMC will swim in lanes 2, 4, and 6.
  • Typically at away meets, MMC will swim in lanes 1, 3, and 5.
