COPS Winter Meet 2023

We look forward to seeing you this weekend. Here is the final information for coaches and team managers. Please pass relevant information on to swimmers.
Please let the gala secretary know of any known withdrawals via email at [email protected] before the weekend and inform race control of any on the day. 
Just a reminder about the times:
Session 1 Warm up at 13.30 Start 14.15
Session 2 Warm up at 17.30 Start 18.15
Session 3 Warm up at 9.00 Start 9.50
Session 4 Warm up at 13.15 Start 14.05
As this is a busy meet, I will do the heats sheets on the day in case of withdraws so we will try to run with the least amount of empty lanes as possible.
Club positions on deck can be found on the attached diagram.
Due to the amount of swimmers we will have limited space on pool side, so please no chairs. Please also use lockers where possible to avoid as many bag poolside.
Also find attached the Warm-up Schedule.
In the TM and coaches packs I have included an Entry list of each clubs swimmers per Session. The expectation is to use these as your "attendance" check and let Time control know of any swimmers not attending by 13:40 for Session 1.
Just a reminder that we have swimmers with nut allergy so please can you ensure your swimmers do not have snacks on the pool side that contain nuts.
Please could all swimmers be on the grass area outside the pool entrance 15 minutes before the warm-up start to give time to enter the pool.  For example, be on the grass by 13:15 pm for Session 1. It would be helpful if swimmers can arrive beach ready and change on the poolside. We will not clear the poolside between sessions, but any new swimmers for the second session of each day will need to wait on the grass and a COPS volunteer will bring them onto the poolside in clubs.

Refreshments for Officials, Coaches, TM and Volunteers
Food and drinks for officials, coaches and volunteers will be served in the sports hall at Whittlesey. There will be Pizza or fish and chips on the Saturday tea time, breakfast items before the Sunday sessions and sandwiches for lunch. Teas/Coffees available and water refills.
Just a reminder (again) that we have swimmers with nut allergy so please can you ensure your swimmers do not have snacks on the pool side that contain nuts.
The meet is busy and due to limited seating space in Whittlesey pool, we need to limit/control the spectatorsTo make this as easy as possible we are enabling the purchase of entry before the weekend via INSERT OrderWizz.  There are 160 spectator seats.  
On the day, we will be offering an ‘In & Out” pass to enable a further 40 spectators to stand at the back of the seating area only when we their swimmer is racing. When your swimmer isn’t racing we have a separate room offering seating in between races. This room will be needed in between sessions for officials and Volunteers refreshments. In & Out passes will cost £2 per session.
Spectators will be charged £5 per session or £15 for the weekend (all 4 sessions). O.A.P.’s will be charged a discounted price of £3 per session. There is no charge for Under 18’s.
Refreshments and other 
We will also have COPS coffee selling drinks and snacks and we will have our new kit sale for goggles, equipment, water bottles etc. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS CASHLESS AND CARD READERS ONLY FOR PAYMENT
We have a catering van coming on site selling burger, chips etc., on the Saturday Session; this is a third-party company.
A 5-minute walk brings you to Whittlesey town centre, where you can also find a Subway and various takeaway options, as well as a Wetherspoons
