I am already being contacted regarding doing relays at Harvard at firstname.lastname@example.org. It looks like we might be able to get at least 3 relays in the same event at least once this year (our past record was 2 relays). Keep contacting me with your name, age, gender, the days and times you are planning to be at Harvard and the strokes/distances you feel comfortable or uncomfortable swimming. The more information I have ahead of time, the more accurate our relays can be.
I have heard some newer swimmers say that they don’t think they are ready for a big meet like Harvard yet. While there are a lot of fast swimmers at Harvard, they are not necessarily any faster than our fast swimmers- there are just more of them. There are also a lot more average speed swimmers and there are more newer and slower swimmers. I have met swimmers at past Harvard meets for whom it is their first swim meet ever. Despite the large number of swimmers, the meet is run well. It is efficient but organized and not rushed. People are friendly and helpful- just like the meets we have hosted in Connecticut. I believe that any swimmer of any ability or experience can have an enjoyable experience in Harvard.
I have already heard from some people interested in going to Spring Nationals in Santa Clara, California. I would like to also put relays together for that meet. If you are planning on going, please email me at email@example.com.
