A Note About Holiday Classic & EEX Hosting Responsibilities:

Holiday Classic is one of the most competitive meets on the East Coast, and serves as both a local winter championship (for in-state athletes) as well as a popular destination for elite swimmers from around the region.  In 2016, our meet received special designation as a "National Certification Meet" for officials and admins, bringing in USA Swimming Volunteers and College Coaches by the dozens.  Entries for Holiday Classic XXXI opened at 6:00am and the entire meet was full by 6:05am, with many teams and swimmers left looking elsewhere for a December Meet.  EEX has proudly put on this high-performance competition for over three decades, and for the first 15 years, the rule was (without any event or swimmer exceptions): no cut, no compete, and families were required to work 8 Sessions each.  As our team's membership, leadership, and volunteering needs have evolved, so too have our policies regarding swimmer participation at Holiday Classic.  Those once strict standards were relaxed within the past ten years to allow for more team-wide participation, but with so many teams being closed out and with the meet more than ever on the regional and national radar, there is an expectation that EEX be more respectful of the cut times to ensure the timeliness and quality of the competition.  As the host team, we still have limited wiggle room when it comes to entering swimmers who do not have qualifying times; however, we do need to be more observant of the meet cuts, especially in the 15-Over Age Group, where the standards are most elite and the stakes involving college recruiting are so significant. 


​...​
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR MY SWIMMERS AND MY WORK ASSIGNMENT THE WEEKEND OF HOLIDAY CLASSIC??!!

 

Even if your swimmers are not racing daily at Holiday Classic, we still need your family’s support to help keep the meet running smoothly; this is an EEX Team Hosted Event!

 

​​
EEX​ Parents--- Your Swimmers (15-Over) Who Are Not Racing Can Fulfill Family Volunteer Requirements:

 

To EEX Swimmers (re: our group discussion(s) at practice)--- just because you are not competing in HC or are only racing 1 Day—this is still Our Team’s Meet, and we encourage all of you to be a part of the action!   Please come out and volunteer as timers, runners, result posters, awards, etc; it will bring some good energy to the deck and give you a chance to cheer on those who are competing. 

Your volunteering will count toward your family work requirements (i.e. you can fill in for your parents so they don’t have to work), and we can offer you Community Service for any and all hours worked at Holiday Classic XXXI.


​​
Priority Sign-up for Parents of Swimmers Racing 1 Or 2 Days Only

-We will make every attempt to give parents of these swimmers priority registration for these shifts.  So, for instance, if your swimmer is racing on Friday and Saturday but not on Sunday, then we will make sure you are not stuck with a shift on the day your swimmer is not racing.  This is going to take some teamwork and flexibility, but ultimately this should get people where they want to be and help balance the distribution of labor among our volunteers.
