2019 Heartland AREA Championships
Please see meet packet for details.
To qualify for AREA Championships you must have attended at least 3 meets since the beginning of September. High School swimmers must have attended at least 2 YMCA meets since the beginning of September. Regional Championships may be used as one of the qualifying meets. You also must have an AREA qualifying time to swim in each individual event. Qualified swimmers may also choose ONE bonus event. If you did not earn any qualifying times a swimmer may still be able to swim at AREA championships if they are "Called Up" in an event. The host team works to fill the meet with at least 24 swimmers in each event. Swimmers are called up in the order of their best seed times earned throughout the season (We will not be informed of call ups until VERY close to the date of the meet). Also a swimmer may also swim in relays on the team without having earned a qualifying AREA time. Each team may enter one relay team in each relay event regardless of who is on that relay. If you would like to make it known that your swimmer will be available for relays please LET COACHES KNOW ASAP! THANKS!!
