Fred’s Philosophy

“I really enjoy meeting people and helping guide them through their events.” Fred Pigott

That is what he did. He welcomed swimmers of all levels and took an interest in them personally. If there was a new rule, he took time to explain it and answer questions. He was always pleasant as well as patient to swimmers. As an official, he was a role model.

At my first swim meet ever, I missed my event. I was in a panic and told Fred. He reacted calmly and told me not to worry. He could make room for me in the next heat.
