All About Meets

Our team is part of the Southern Ohio Swim League (SOSL). We compete in the “A” division with Milford, Mariemont, Coney, and Phillips.

Meets are held on either “at home” or “away” on Tuesday and/or Thursday evenings, and they usually last about four hours.

Please Note: Parent participation is essential to the team, especially for running meets. Please check the Parental Responsibilities page for more info

Home Meets!
Clinton Hills hosts several home meets each year:

Home Meet Schedule:
     5:15pm:Clinton Hills swimmers arrive.
     5:30pm: Swimmer warm-ups; parents signed up to work check-in with the volunteer coordinator.
     6:30pm: Meet begins.

The Meet Lineup:
Is posted on the wall between the rest rooms, so you and your child(ren) copy down the events they are swimming. For quick reference, many people write the event, heat and lane numbers on swimmer’s arm using a Sharpie marker. Heat sheets listing all meet entries are also available for sale.

Swim Meet Concessions:
Each family is asked to provide a baked good or other snack (can be store-bought) for sale at the concessions. Suggestions are cupcakes, brownies, Rice Krispie treats, or individual portions of cut fruit or pasta salad.

The “After-Party”:
When the meet is over, Clinton Hills swimmers are served hot dogs and chips at the concession stand.

Away Meets!
Clinton Hills Swim Team also travels to a number of Away Swim Meets each season.

Away Meet Schedule:
     5:45pm: Clinton Hills swimmers arrive and find Clinton Hills “team area.”
     6:00pm: Clinton Hills swimmer warm-ups; parents signed up to work check-in with the volunteer coordinator.
     6:30pm: Meet begins.

The Meet Lineup:
Is posted near the team area, so you and your child(ren) copy down the events they are swimming for your reference, and Sharpie tattooing.

The “After-Party”:
When the meet is over, Clinton Hills swimmers are invited to gather at a restaurant like LaRosa’s or Skyline. A parent volunteer calls ahead to let the restaurant know, and may collect money to place an advance order from families who choose to participate.
