How to Mark Your Swimmers
Using a waterproof marker (Sharpie), write four column headings on your swimmer’s arm: E, H, L, S – for Event, Heat, Lane and Stroke respectively.
Continue filling in the grid until all of your swimmer’s event information is on the arm.
You can abbreviate the stroke: Freestyle = FR, Backstroke = BK, Butterfly = FL, Breaststroke = BR, IM. Relays....put the stroke your swimmer will swim.
For this Event, Jan's arm would read:
E H L S
12 1 5 50 FR (means event 12 - heat 1 - lane 5 in the 50 Freestyle)
Note: Our league only has events 1 through 68.
