Meet Maestro is a modern and easy-to-use online meet management platform. Meet Maestro and SwimTopia work together to help you simplify running your meets by removing numerous setup steps that were necessary in ‘old’ meet management platforms, and allowing teams to merge their entries online, without needing to exchange files. Meet Maestro saves team computer operators hours of pre, during, and post-meet work.
Meet Maestro is optimized to work with CTS Dolphin wireless timing systems, to eliminate the need for manual time entry on meet days. Meet Maestro also works with stopwatches, having an efficient interface for inputting times. And Meet Maestro can be customized with league-specific DQ codes.
Swimmingly is also designed to save volunteer work and time on meet days, but it does that by changing the way teams run their meets, and attempting to remove paper from the pool deck. With Swimmingly, the timers time on iPhones or Androids through the Swimmingly app, and need to input every swimmer’s unique “swimmer number” (found written on the swimmer’s shoulder or arm in Sharpie) after every heat. If teams are happy to have no backup timing whatsoever, Swimmingly removes the need for timing sheets, as times are directly transferred into the scorekeeping app. [Note, teams using the CTS Dolphin system can also eliminate timing sheets if teams don’t want any back up times.]
Both Swimmingly and Meet Maestro generate heat sheets and post-meet reports. And both systems have companion apps that provide subscribers with heat sheets and results, thus, both apps reduce the need for paper on the pool deck. However, a subscription to receive these features from Meet Maestro is a fraction of the price of Swimmingly’s app features ($2.49 per month for the SwimTopia app Pro features, with only one subscription needed to see all your family’s info, whereas SwimminglyFan app features are included with the $18 per swimmer membership fee).
