Seeing Double??? It's OK...You are not imagining it.....
We have an exciting, innovative meet event format that I want to explain. The meet format is all about creating flexibility. Let's say you have a swimmer who you would like to participate in the following events:200 FL, 200 BK, 200 BR, 200 FR, 500 FR, 400 IM, 1650. Under typical event format structures, there is only one possible way in which you can get these events in through one meet. This leaves coaches/swimmers with less-than-ideal options for getting important events in early in the season. As a result, it sometimes takes several meets to get all of these events in. Our new event structure offers the 200's on both days. Having each 200yd on both days of a meet allows the coach/swimmer MANY different ways in which to optimally schedule their desired events.
Our event structure is set to allow 9-10yr olds to swim some of the more difficult events (200yd of each stroke and 400IM ) even though Motivational Standards do not exist for these event/age combinations. . The BLUE coaches do meet entries, so when we put younger swimmers in a tough event, it has been discussed with the swimmer, and we only put the swimmers in who we think are ready. The value comes when these swimmers turn 11yr and need a time in those events in order to swim them in a meet. By doing this we have had swimmers receive great experiences and gain times so that they don't get shut out of meets that exclude NT once they age up. I hope this helps your swimmers too !
