This unique meet is hosted by the Dana Hills Otters in which every swimmer competes in all five individual events; freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly and the Individual Medley ( 6 & U's swim a 50 yard freestyle instead of the IM). Awards are given for all of the individual events results (including heat winners), and the times from each of the five races are totaled to determine overall Pentathalon rankings for swimmers in A and B divisions in each age/gender group which are announced in an exciting ceremony at the end of each day. This is a great meet for popping times and swimming lots of races.
This meet is an all-day event and runs two days but swimmers participate on only one day based on their age/gender group.
