Answers to FAQ:
Why don't we hold swim meets at University of MD College Park?
The University, located in PG County, is not a part of Maryland Swimming and is currently not available to us. Maryland Swimming does not include PG or Montgomery Counties - they belong to Potomac Valley Swimming, who has the rights to the UM pool..
Why is the concession food not really for swimmers, or very limited in selection, at many meets?
Many facilities that are rented for a swim meet, have food services that we are required to employ - teams can not bring in their own food to sell or their own food vendors into the venue. With those large Facility Concession Vendors, there is no leeway in what food they offer for sporting events - or any type of event. Many of our meet hosts have attempted to discuss this with the vendors, but it is not feasible, or profitable, for them to purchase different (healthier) items for a swim meet - than they would sell at a basketball game or football game or a concert. Best suggestion for your swimmer - have them bring a small cooler, or insulated bag, packed with what they like to eat! Don't blame the meet host - in more and more facilities, they have absolutely no control over the concessions.
