Everyone is excited and ready to get back to the pools this summer. We might not know exactly what each swim meet will look like, but we do know that they might be a little bit different – and that’s okay! If last year has showed us anything, it’s the willingness to adapt and make sure that swim meets can and will happen!

There are many summer leagues and swim teams across the country that are looking for ways to run paperless swim meets to help eliminate the transmission touchpoints around the pool deck. Not to mention, virtual meets require fewer volunteers on the pool deck to keep a safe swim meet environment! If you are looking for ways to keep your swim meets SAFE and FUN for everyone, this might be for you!
