BTW Swim - Lane Timers for Tonight / Swimtopia Mobile App
HOME MEET TONIGHT!
We still need some more volunteers to help run our first home meet of the season - especially 8 more Lane Timers. JV and Varsity will compete against Deer Creek and Putnam City. Go to the Meets & Events page of our website and click on the green Jobs Signup button next to the event to volunteer. The meet can’t take place without your help. Thank you!
SWIMTOPIA MOBILE APP
Swimtopia - our team website host - now offers a free mobile app which allows team admins to communicate vital information quickly through its notification system, along with a few other features. We encourage all swimmers and parents to download the app and turn on notifications in your phone settings. (If you don’t use the app or don’t turn on notifications, any messages sent as Alerts to app users will also be sent as an email message to those not using the app or notifications.)
App Features Overview:
- Notification Alerts from team admins
- Personalized calendar view of upcoming meets and events
- Personalized Meet & Event Overview for your family members (including volunteer jobs)
- Your swimmers’ best times
- Your swimmers’ event history
- Post-meet results for your family’s swimmers
*Because we don’t use Swimtopia’s Meet Maestro swim software, it does not include live meet information.
*You can not sign up for jobs through the app; that still must be done through the Swimtopia website.
NOTE: a Pro version of the app is available at a small charge, but don’t upgrade to that; it’s only useful if a team is using Swimtopia’s Meet Maestro software that integrates with the app, which we don't use.
Download the Swimtopia app on the Apple App Store for iPhone or on Google Play for Android. (Android users: you may need to receive your first notification before you can edit this setting. See Swimtopia’s HelpCenter article about setting up Android Notifications - https://help.swimtopia.com/hc/en-us/articles/360028382651 )
We'll use the Alert function of the app for short, time-sensitive messages; more detailed news will still be sent via email.
Our first pasta party of the season was a great success and it seems like the swimmers had a fun time. Many thanks to Marnie Choisnard for assisting my wife and I last night. The next Pasta Party will take place on Monday, December 9 at Shea Goodson’s home.
See you at the pool tonight!
