Description

BASS Families,

Our BASS-hosted Jim Frye Memorial Invitational Long Course meet is available for signups. Our meet is open for all swimmers who are registered to swim through May 2019. The deadline for signups is midnight, Thursday, April 18. The meet will be held 4-5 May 2019, at the Collegiate School Aquatic Center, 5050 Ridgedale Parkway, Richmond VA.

This meet IS included in your swim dues AND you will have the opportunity to earn volunteer points.  Since BASS hosts this meet, it’s important that we have everyone’s involvement because it takes an entire swim team to run a meet!

This is a Long Course (50m) meet. That means that no 25 yard events are available.  The pool is configured so that 50m is one length of the pool.

  • All 13 & Over swimmers will swim in the morning session Saturday and Sunday
  • All 12 & Under swimmers will swim in the afternoon session Saturday and Sunday.
  • 13 & Over 400 Free will swim in a Saturday mid-day session.
  • MIXED gender events (800m & 1500m) will be swim in a Sunday Late Afternoon Session.  Girls and boys will be mixed together and seeded by time in these events.

12 & under swimmers may enter up to 3 individual events per day

13 & over swimmers may enter up to 3 individual events per day and 1 distance event per day.

Heat sheets will be available for purchase throughout the meet. Concessions will be available at the facility.
