Lake Erie Swimming and Ohio Swimming join to form Team Ohio to compete in the 14 & Under Mid-states All Star Championships.

Applications for this year’s 14 & Under All-Star Mid-States Championships are being taken for the six -team All-Star meet at IUPUI in Indianapolis, IN on January 7-8, 2022 .

The six teams are: Ohio (Ohio Swimming combined with Lake Erie Swimming), Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.  Swimmers that feel they may be one of the fastest 4 swimmers in Ohio are encouraged to apply for the team.  No times standards are required to apply for the team.  Time standards for previous team selections for each age group are posted here for reference.

The fastest four (4) swimmers in each event (except the 1650 [3] ) from those applications received by the deadline will be selected. Be sure to enter all of your best times since 9/1/2021 in your entry for consideration for additional  events in case they have not been filled.  All swimmers shall submit their fastest 50 freestyle time from the qualifying period for relay considerations, even if the swimmer is not likely to be selected for the individual event.  Swimmers may apply for as many events as they wish, but will not be selected for more than 6 events.  

 

In the event that a swimmer qualifies for the team in more events than permissible by the meet rules, the following criteria will be considered for selection of the next applicant:

·          Relative strength of events for swimmer exceeding the entry limit

·          Differential between next fastest applicant and the swimmer exceeding the event limit

·          Strength of the next fastest applicant relative to national time standards and previous year's meet results

·          Event distribution for the swimmer exceeding the entry limitation
