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.

Many coaches, swimmers and parents look at the meets their team attends in December, as the 2nd most important meets of the Short Course Season - besides the actual MD Swimming Championship Meets. Is the meet you are going to that important to you?

Maryland Swimming Trivia

Winner gets a $15 i-Tunes gift card!!!

All registered MD Swimming swimmers are welcome to play.

New Question: Learning about the Olympics. The ancient Olympic Games were primarily a part of a religious festival in honor of  the father of the Greek gods and goddesses. The festival and the games were held in Olympia, a rural sanctuary site. The Greeks that came to the Sanctuary at Olympia shared the same religious beliefs and spoke the same language. The athletes were all male citizens of the city-states from every corner of the Greek world, coming from as far away as Spain in the west and Turkey in the east. The sanctuary was named after Mt. Olympus , the highest mountain in mainland Greece. In Greek mythology, Mt. Olympus was the home of the greatest of the Greek gods and goddesses. Who was the father of the Greek Gods and Goddesses in whose honor the Olympic Games were held?
