Prelims/B-Champs – A Tutorial

At the finish of the dual meet season, all swimmers are eligible to participate in the championship season. Swimmers that reach a qualifying time standard swim at the Division Preliminaries. Those who haven't reached a qualifying time swim at the B-Championship meet. Results from B-Champs can move a swimmer into prelims if it betters the prelim standard.

The fastest six swimmers in each event at the Prelims move on to the Northern Division Finals. To qualify for the All-City Meet, a swimmer's time at Northern Division is compared to the Southern Division results. The fastest six results, regardless of North or South affiliation, are entered in the All-City Championship meet.

*All swimmers participating in prelims must be available to swim at the All-City Championship meet.


Please make sure to mark on the missing meet board, or email us, if your child does not plan on participating in these meets.
