    Smoky Meet Invitational
    Springbrook Pool, 636 Vose Road, Alcoa, TN 37701

    SMI is a large outdoor two-day meet:

    Saturday, 11 and older (Events 1-52)
    Sunday, 10 and under (Events 53-86)

    There will be about 30 teams there with 1,500 swimmers and 3,500 spectators. There's one pool in use for the meet and two large clerk of course tents (one to gather and one for seating). Parents are asked NOT to enter Clerk of Course.

    There's also a spectator swim area that you can purchase a wristband for. Please note that SMI requests that swimmers only participate in spectator swim once their races are finished.

    Our team will purchase a tent for our use, historically it has been behind the big slide at the spectator swim area.

    Warm-ups start at 7:00am, and the meet starts approximately 8:45 a.m. each day. We will send out exact arrive times and warm-ups times when we get them.

    Jobs listed are those our team filled last year - may be updated this year.

    Parking is limited. There are signs in the areas designated where not to park. Early teams get good spots. No parking in church on Sunday during church.

    What to bring:
    Cash
    Sunscreen
    Bug spray
    Cooler with food and drinks
    Breakfast to share
    Lawn chairs, blankets, sleeping bags
    Books, games, things to do


    What to do upon arrival:
    Check in at our team tent.
    Make sure your coaches know you are here
    Set up your chairs, coolers, whatever you brought (stake your area)
    Buy a Heat Sheet (Credit Cards Accepted).
    The Heat Sheet contains when your child swims, what heat, and approximate time they will swim. Also shows seed times.

    If you are working, attend Workers meeting in Clerk of Course tent when announced (before meet starts).

    Unlike previous year, SMI T-Shirts will be available to purchase/preorder only (not on site).  Details will be posted as soon as we receive them.

    Food vendors and other have been onsite historically - will post details when we receive them.

    Scoring and results are posted on a large board near the restrooms. Event results are posted 30 minutes after each event is complete.

    The meet moves very fast, so always be attentive. Announcer is making calls every five minutes. Swimmers should get ready on first call, make their way to clerk of course on second call and be in the tent
    (with team if relay) by final call.

    Spectator swims are available during specific times (noted in heat sheet).
    Credit Cards are accepted.
    Athletes are not allowed in the pool, until after their events that day (rest is
    important!).

    *Note: As with meets, it is important that you stay and complete ALL of your events. The Saturday session has historically run until approximately 6:00 PM and the Sunday session timeline has historically run until 4:00 PM. If you are scheduled to be on a relay please do your part and do not leave early, your 3 teammates want to swim too. In planning your day – expect normal delays to that time, and hope for no weather-related delays.
