Crash Area

For anyone who is not familiar with swim meets this is called the crash area. It's where swimmers and their families (those who are not working the meet) "crash" between events.

Going to a swim meet is not like going to a baseball or football game. Most of the time you must plan to be there most of the day. You take chairs with you. You take a cooler with snacks and drinks with you. The kids bring stuff to help keep them busy, i.e. DS, books, coloring books and crayons, puzzles, games, laptops, iPods, etc. Swimmers have clothes, extra goggles and swim caps, a couple pairs of sweat or pj pants, some kind of shoes like flip flops or crocs, robes and/or sweat shirts, blankets, at least 4 towels each, sleeping bags, etc with them too.
