Championship 2019

Please review the 2019 Championship Packet for all the rules that we must follow.

The Championship will take place at Chabot College on Saturday, July 27th. Swimmers arrive before 6:30 am and we hope the meet is done by 4 pm. We need the help of everybody on the team - parents included! All families with swimmers attending championship will need to work at the meet -- we will be assigning jobs. Plan on spending the whole day at the event.  

There is no morning practice the Friday before championships. We will be practicing at Chabot College on Friday before champs from 12-1 pm. Please see the 2019 Friday practice schedule here.

Before Championship - 

1. Championship Cover Contest: All EBSL swimmers are eligible! If any of your swimmers are artistic, please encourage them to enter the cover contest. The front and back cover will be in color this year. Artwork must be submitted on 8 1/2 x 11-inch white paper, hand-drawn in color (no computer-generated artwork) and swimmer's name, age, & team should be printed neatly in light pencil on the back of the page. There will be two winners: 10 and under & 11 and up. Winners will receive $50 and the 11 & up winner will be the cover for this year's program. For examples of previous years artwork, you can check here -

2. Championship Program: Every family going to championship should be buying a program - cost is $10 (there will be programs for sale the day of championship for $15). This will allow you to know what heat/lane/event your child is swimming. Check your email for details on placing an order.

3. Ads (in the Championship Program): This is the main fundraiser for the team and we encourage all families attending championship to participate. This is an opportunity for you to thank the coaches and cheer on your swimmers.  Many families will scan in their child's swim team picture. Check your email for details on placing an ad for champs.

4. Champs Apparel: Every season we have a special theme for champs. Our theme this year is Toy Story. Please go to the Cuda Store on the website and place your order. The artwork is on the main page and we have three shirt styles available - Men's, ladies and youth. 

Ways and Means (Natalie) will be taking orders/collecting checks at swim practices and at the last dual swim meet. Bring your checkbooks to practices or the last dual meet for paying for the following orders: Champs Programs/ Champs Ads/ Champs Apparel. You should write one check for Champs ads/program, and a separate check for champs apparel. All checks are payable to MVST. Check your email for order details and deadline.

Each swimmer will also be receiving a championship swim cap. Swimmers not attending championship will receive their cap at the awards dinner.

5. End of Season Dinner: This is for all swimmers on the team and family members. El Rincon Taco Truck will be catering the dinner this year. There will be a veggie option for the same price. Check your email for order details and deadline.

Day of Championship

  • Parking: Chabot College has requested that we park in the athletic sections, lots B and J. You must pay $3 on Friday & Saturday. Please follow all posted parking rules. Tickets are $40.
  • Swimmers should wear the team suit and team cap -- if your swimmer has misplaced their suit/cap, please make sure the cap and suit are plain black. Remind your swimmer that they are not allowed to wear jewelry.
  • Camp out area -- 10 & Under and 11 & Up swimmers and families:
All families with 11U swimmers will be camping outside of the pool area

An e-mail will be sent on Friday evening with an aerial view of the location of our team's spot -- click here to see our team's spot this year / Aerial View 

We need families to bring canopies as there may be no shade! Look for other MVST families -- or if you are the first one there, there should be a chalk mark with "MV" for our area.

10U families should camp out in the deck area

We all need to share the space, so please be considerate of others. We will bring the team canopies. The 2019 Championship Camp out Map for 10 and under shows where our space is on the deck. This year, we are assigned space in front of the men's locker room between Seals and Treeview. No tents are allowed on the pool deck!!

  • PARENT VOLUNTEER JOBS Every parent needs to do their volunteer job. There are descriptions of when you need to show up and what needs to be done -- if you are unsure, ask! The fine for not doing a job is $100 (more importantly, this will cause a family to not be in good standing with the team if you fail to do your championship volunteer job). Click here for 2019 jobs assigned to each family and the EBSL Job Descriptions. Our Parent Volunteer Coordinator will have all of your stickers - please see Sandra Li for your sticker on Saturday morning in the MV area on the deck.
  • Programs The program will show what heat/lane your child is swimming. Ways & Means will hand out programs to all that pre-purchased one in the MV area on the deck. 
  • Events: For our 10&Under swimmers, the coordinators will escort them to the staging area for their event, but we need parents to make sure your child is in the 10&Under camp area. 11&Up swimmers will direct themselves to the 11&Up clerk of the course area. The 11&Up tend to call into the pool area to find out what event is taking place to find out when they need to proceed.

Meet will be run just like last year. The deep end will have medley relays, beginning with the 8U Girls "B" medley relay. After medley relays, all of the 10U events, including the free relay, will be held in the shallow end of the pool; all of the 11U events will be held in the deep end of the pool. There are bleachers in the deep end of the pool to watch the events and you can stand along the railing by the shallow end. You are not to bring chairs to sit in along this area.

It will be a long day. Keep swimmers in the shade. Eat healthy food, stay well-hydrated, and have fun! We expect many of our Cuda families will stay through the awards ceremony at the end of the day. It takes place after everything is cleaned up at Chabot.

After the awards presentation on Saturday, it is tradition for many of the Barracuda families to meet at Fuddruckers (Union Landing) for dinner. Hope you can join us!

Please let us know if you have any questions -- It should be a very exciting meet on Saturday!
