We believe in building a swim meet that is more fun for everyone!
First and foremost, we believe in guiding swim teams towards shorter swim meets, with fewer volunteers, and NO paper. At a Swimmingly meet, paper heat sheets are no longer needed! This means your heat sheet for your meet is synchronized before you have to print a thing. Parents, grandparents, and fans can simply view the heat sheet on SwimminglyFan! This saves your key volunteers hours of time not having to print (and reprint) paper copies. No paper!
Next, we believe everyone deserves to be included in the fun of seeing times and results. As SwimminglyFan unfolds, we are seeing more of the operational burden of a swim meet being removed from the shoulders of club administrators. In the past, some club admins felt overwhelmed by the parents on their team. This was because, quite often, parents had no idea about results or scores – watching the meet in front of them but not having a scoreboard or any info! We are here to make swim meets more fun, bringing the times and scores to everyone on deck, increasing transparency, cooperation, and communication between everyone!
The Swimmingly WiFi (or legacy Meet Central WiFi) is for the Swimmingly app (swim meet operations) only. We protect the integrity of the swim meet first and foremost. Only devices using the Swimmingly app (Starter, Times, Judges, Scorekeeper) should ever be connected to the Swimmingly WiFi.
To use SwimminglyFan, simply connect to your cellular connection or any other WiFi, just like you do with any other app!
In fact, having SwimminglyFan eliminates another job for club admins–printing and/or distributing heat sheets. This job typically costs one volunteer on your team at least 1-2 hours of work per swim meet, depending on how you distribute your heat sheets. With SwimminglyFan, the heat sheet is available instantly. Additionally, you’ll never have a problem again with printing heat sheets that have to be revised at the last minute. SwimminglyFan instantly re-syncs with any heat sheet updates!
Any iOS device with a cellular data plan that is a Timer is eligible to be a live publisher. The Swimmingly app knows to live publish the results through any device that is a live publisher with the cellular connection. A entire swim meet using Swimmingly is typically about 1.25 MB of data (for perspective, live publishing Swimmingly for an entire swim meet uses approximately the same amount of data the Facebook app uses in a single minute). As long as you have one live publisher, SwimminglyFan just works!
As the Scorekeeper, you know that sometimes there will be results with the yellow warning icon. SwimminglyFan does not display these results immediately. It will acknowledge that there is a pending result, but results will only be shown on SwimminglyFan once the yellow warnings have been addressed.
