Judges and Other Volunteers
The MCSL All Star Relay Meet requires the staffing of two
full sets of Officials, Timers, Take-Off Judges and Other Volunteers since the meet
is run in two sessions – Section I and Section II. This meet is a unique event
in that each Division swims approximately the same number of Relay teams. As a
result, we need All Divisions to
solicit volunteers and help staff the meet.
The All Star Officials/Volunteer Coordinators for each
Division will be soliciting volunteers to work as Officials (Referee, Starter
and Stroke & Turn Judges) as well Timers/Take-Off Judges. If you are an
MCSL Certified Official or are willing to work as a Timer or Take-Off Judge
(each Division must provide at least 5 volunteers to work as Timers or Take-Off
Judges) we ask that you contact your Division All Star Officials/Volunteer
Coordinator either directly or through your team Representative.
Also, we are always looking for individuals interested in announcing
or performing the National Anthem. If you are interested or know someone that
might be interested please reach out to Marty Cohen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Preliminary All Star Relay Seeding’s for each Section will
be posted in advance of the meet with Final Seeding’s posted by the Thursday
before the Meet. If you identify errors or have questions regarding your teams
seeding you should reach out to Bob Hincke at email@example.com.
Meet T–Shirts for this event may be ordered in advance of
the meet through Capital Sport & Swim. T-Shirts may be ordered for all Relay
team members, that are listed on the All Star Relay seeding (including alternates)
posted on the web. T-Shirts may be picked-up, by a team Representative, at the
Capital Swim & Sport tent during the meet.
Meet programs will be available at a price of $1.00 per

you get to the steps going down to the Competition Pool.
Team tents may be placed on the grassy areas behind the
starting end of the Competition Pool. No tents will be permitted in the grassy
area between the Competition Pool and the upper Recreation pools. Tents left overnight at the pool for Individual All Stars are left at the owner's risk.
Entrance to the Centers parking lot is only through the
easternmost (indoor pool) driveway and the exit is through the westernmost
(outdoor pool) driveway.
A fee of $1.00 is charged for parking in the Center’s lot.
You may drop someone off without paying the fee but you cannot park in the lot
and must exit after dropping off. If you choose to park in the Centers lot only
park in defined spaces. Do not make your own parking space.
If you do not park in the Centers lot you may park on
Martins Lane, the Rock Terrace School parking lot (do not park on their fields
or grass) or in the Board of Education parking lot off of Mannakee Street.
Do not park on the
baseball field across the street from the Center or on side streets as this
will likely result in you receiving a City of Rockville parking ticket.
Please assist the
staff in making the parking operation a smooth one.
