This meet is our West Michigan Swim League “A” Championship and final WMSL meet of the summer. This meet is open to all swimmers who have achieved a WMSL “A” qualifying time for an event. This meet is recommended to any qualifying Groups I-IV and Jr Riptide swimmers. To register for this meet, simply respond with a declaration to swim (Y/N).

To compete in the meet:

1) Your swimmer MUST have competed in at least ONE of the WMSL dual meets or WMSL Invites this Spring/Summer season to participate in the Summer "A" Championship Meet.

2)  Your swimmer MUST have achieved an "A" qualifying time to participate in the WMSL Summer “A” Championship Meet. Once your swimmer has attained an “A” time in any event he or she must swim at the “A” meet. Per WMSL bylaws, swimmers may not swim both “A” and “B” Championship meets.

3) Bonus Swim(s): Swimmers who post an A qualifying time in just one event are required to swim all their remaining event(s) in the A Conference Championships.  Swimmers may enter another event if they only have one WMSL A qualifying time.  

* Eligibility times are attached to this event (please review to see if your swimmer qualifies). If your swimmer does not qualify for the WMSL A Championship meet, he or she is eligible for the WMSL B Championships. This info will be relesed shortly. 

Meet Format – Championship meet.  Swimmers are grouped by age and gender. Coaches will choose events; however, you are encouraged to recommend. Relays will be assigned by coaches and will depend upon the number of swimmers who sign up for the meet in their respective age groups.
