Lakewood Aquatics Sprint Cup Invitational
(this is a team hosted event)
2018 Lakewood Aquatics Sprint Cup Invitational
Get ready for the first swim meet of 2018! Lakewood Aquatics will be hosting the 2018 Sprint Cup Invitations at Cerritos College on January 27th and 28th.
Age 11+ Swimmers
This meet is a little different than our usual meets in that it’s a prelims and finals meet for our swimmers age 11+. What that means is that they will compete in prelims in a morning session. The top 10 finishers in the prelims will then go on to compete in a single finals race in the late afternoon. So if you’re 11 and older and swim the 100 freestyle on Saturday morning and have one of the top 10 times, you will then compete in the finals for that race. The finals begin at 4 PM the same day. There are prelims and finals on both Saturday and Sunday.
Note from the meet guidelines that “swimmers must scratch or place an intent on an event within 30 minutes of announcement of preliminary results. Final ”no-show“ (original top places only) except last day will be removed from the remainder of the meet. A $50.00 fine will be assessed to the swimmer for a no show in her/his last event of the meet.” In other words, if you qualify for the finals but won’t be able to swim in them, be sure and scratch before leaving the meet. That means that 11+ swimmers will want to stick around for 30 minutes after their last race to see if they’ve qualified for the finals.
Age 10 and Under Swimmers
This meet will operate in the same way as a traditional meet for our 10 and under swimmers. The only difference is that they will be competing in the afternoon instead of the morning.
