PARKING INFORMATION
There are several big events going on around the GMU campus the same weekend as our meet so GMU is allowing us the additional use of parking lots L & K in case anyone has trouble finding space in Lots C and A.

 

We  will be sending a select number of swimmers to this meet with Head Senior Coach Peter Ward and Head Age Group Coach Mike Cook determining the team participants for this competitive meet.  See below for selection criteria.
 
PLEASE INDICATE WHETHER YOU ARE AVAILABLE TO SWIM AT THIS MEET BY SELECTING EVENTS YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SWIMMING.
 
Selected swimmers will be notified of their participation and events in mid-November.
  • If you are a member of your high school team it is  expected that you will forgo your HS dual meet in order to participate in all three days of the Winter Classic  . 
  • HS coaches in our area are aware that there are several USA Swimming Championship meets over this particular weekend and agree that USA swim meets take precedence over HS dual meets, as the times count in the USA Swimming database at our meets, but do not count at HS dual meets. Times do count at HS District, Region, and State competitions, which are held at the end of the HS season.  Most coaches are extremely flexible with our year round swimmers, and are expecting this predicament for this particular meet. If your HS Coaches have any questions regarding this meet, please direct them to Coach Heather at makoswimming@aol.com.
Championship Meet Selection Criteria:  Please note that this is a three day championship meet.  The Head Coaches prefer that swimmers participate in all three days of the meet.  Swimmer selection for this meet will be based on the following: past meet performance, practice attendance, meet attendance, and the total number of events each swimmer has posted times for.  This is a Championship Meet, so please note that final event selection for this meet will be done by the Coaches in order to maximize overall MAKO team points.  Swimmers who are not selected for this meet will have the Swim & Rock Meet at Oak Marr as their Championship meet and can also swim at the MAKO Holiday Invitational.
