SHAPRIES: NOT JUST FOR BODY ART

Sharpies come in lots of colors and are a fun way to express yourself, but Sharpies are so much more. Sharpies will help make sure your swimmer gets in the pool when they are supposed to. If a swimmer misses an event, they are sad, the coaches are sad, and parents are sad. Don't let it get to that point.


Take a Sharpie and mark your swimmer's name and age group on the back of their left shoulder. Then write their events on their arm or leg: Event #, Heat #, Lane #. If they are in a relay, add which leg they are swimming. Type A people love this activity.


If you're still unsure about how to properly "mark" your swimmer, get to the next meet a little early, check in with the Age Group Parent, and ask them to show you how. Veteran swim team parents are always happy to help, too.
