(this is a team hosted event)


What is Time Trials?

  • Time Trials is the first meet of the season.

  • Everyone swims as many strokes as they can swim to get a "starting time" for the season.

  • Time Trials also gives new swimmers and new families an opportunity to learn how a meet "runs".

  • Time Trials establishes the starting “ladder” for the season. The ladder is a listing of swimmers in order of times (fastest to slowest) in each age group/stroke.

  • This ladder can be found on the top menu of our webpage under RESULTS

  • STROKE ORDER:  Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Butterfly, IM 


When do I arrive:

  • 6:45 AM Arrive at the pool

  • 7:00 AM Warm-ups start

  • 07:30 AM Volunteer Check-in (6:45 for Set-Up and Concessions)

  • 8:00 AM Events Start

  • This meet can run as late as 12:00 PM.

  • Wear your team suit and cap (no other swim-club/team caps allowed)

Arrive HUNGRY! We will have a full array of concessions and coffee


What will my kid swim?

  • All 8 & unders will be doing AT LEAST freestyle and backstroke (Coaches will approve.)

  • Only 8 & Unders who can swim Fly and Breast should sign up for those strokes. (Coaches will approve.)

  • Most returning swimmers (and seasoned swimmers new to the team) will be doing all 4 strokes.

  • Swimmers who have 4 legal strokes (or coach's approval) may swim an IM at the end of the Butterfly events if we have time.

  • Mini and Junior Dolphins do not participate.

How will I know my kid's times?

  • During the meet, results are posted on the wall between the two bathrooms as soon as they are ready.

  • Ladders will be posted on the website under the RESULTS tab within 48 hours after the event. You must be logged in to see this tab.

  • A new ladder is posted every time there is a meet.

  • Parents may not enter the clubhouse during a meet to ask for a swimmer's time.
