Knox Waldo Area Swim Meet

 Knox/Waldo County Regional Special
Olympic Swim Meet

Friday, March 8, 2024
Waldo County YMCA, Belfast, ME
9:00 am – 12:30 pm


Dear Coaches,

Let me start with an apology. Due to a variety of reasons I am very far behind in coordinating this event. I realize I have not given you enough information prior to the event for you to have swim times ready. Upon completing the registration please add times if you have them. If you do not have swim times then please place a checkmark in the event your athlete will compete in.

We will continue to provide lunches for coaches and athletes so be sure to give us your lunch count. A minimum of 2 sandwich options along with a beverage and other goodies will be provided for all participants and coaches free of charge by the Waldo County YMCA and various sponsors. It is important that we have a good faith estimate of how many lunches will be needed. Every effort will be made to accommodate any food allergies or dietary restrictions.

Please complete and return the registration form to Karen Gorris-Hicock by Monday, February 26. This will allow time to place participants into heats. Be sure to make a copy of this form before completing it and share it with me or email it to me.

Schedule of Events
9:00 – 9:30 Registration in the Waldo YMCA Lobby
9:30 – 11:30 Swim Meet in the Tom & Sally Savage Pool Complex
11:30 – 12:30 Lunch & Awards Ceremony in the Gym





Sadly we lost our dear friend Sandy Roman, who, for years, sang the national anthem at our swim meets. Sandy was not only a talented beautiful vocalist but a very important member of the Waldo YMCA and Belfast community. She was a supporter of all youth sports and activities and personified the mission and goals of the Special Olympics and the YMCA. As her son stated “ Sandi spread laughter and joy to everyone she met.” Sandi loved the color pin and was our very own Pinkalicious!

Please join me in celebrating and honoring Sandi by wearing or bringing something pink this year. This meet is dedicated to her memory.
