2020 SSL Championship Meet
(this is a team hosted event)
This is our Championship Meet,
the biggest and best meet of our season.
All swimmers are encouraged and expected to attend this meet.
***Champs is similar to Mock Meet in that all swimmers can swim in all events, except freestyle where they can only swim short or long free.****
New this year, your swimmer must have a valid seed time from the current year (including Mock Meet) for each event they wish to swim at Champs.
The 2020 SSL Championship swim meet will take place July 24 - 26, 2020. All eight teams in the league will come together for three days of swimming to compete for the Championship trophy. TAZ took home the trophy in 2013 and 2014 and we are hoping to bring it back here in 2020!!

Eligibility and Waivers :
To be eligible to participate in the League Championship meet, swimmers must have participated in a minimum of three of the seven dual meets held during the regular season.
Families or swimmers who will not or MAY NOT achieve participation in the required three dual meets may file a waiver request with the SSL Executive Board. Waivers are due to the EDH SSL Representative, Robert Laing, no later than July 12, 2020. Upon grant of waiver by the SSL Executive board, the swimmer will be allowed to participate in Champs. Swimmers petitioning for a waiver are NOT eligible until the waiver request is granted by the SSL Executive Board.
The Champs waiver form is attached to the SSL Policy 505-1 document available on the club website. See the Documents tab to download the policy, http://bit.ly/TAZSSLWaiver. The policy describes the waiver process and the general conditions under which waiver applications will be favorably considered.
Families who anticipate the need for an SSL waiver should file Champs entries normally using the form on page one. Submit entries by Sunday, July 12th. Requests for waivers are due July 12th.
Swimmers are eligible to enter individual events for which they have a seed time in ALL stroke series and disciplines (you made it all the way there, so sign your child up to swim all the strokes). However, swimmers may only select ONE of the two freestyle events.
Participants at Champs may never swim up in a higher age group. All entrants must swim in their normal age group. The 15-16 and 17-18 swimmers will swim in their own age groups at Champs.
Relays will be selected and submitted by the coaching staff on the day of the Relay Finals. There are no preliminary relay events, only event finals.
