The App will help with the questions that parents always have which are where and when is the swim meet. This App also is a good place to post new swim records for events and list out duties for people to sign up for.
A lot of swim meets will have weather delays, this App lets you do Geo-Push-Notifications so participants will know when the meet is ready to start again.
This App can be used for increasing concession sells by listing out what is available and the cost. Promotions can also be put out for end of meet food specials.

With all that can be done with this App, why would you not want it for your next swim meet?
