What if I am racing an event myself and can not be with my child?

During morning check-in, all youth athletes will have a serialized wrist band attached by our staff. The accompanying parent/ guardian will be given the matching band which must be attached to the person picking up the athlete. Youth athletes can not leave the finishline holding area without proper matching. Unaccompanied youth athletes will be shuttled to the swim start and held at the finish line until they have been picked up.
