Description

2018 MI Swim White Junior Olympic Championships

The Junior Olympics is our second Championship Meet of the short course yard season.  All GLT Swimmers are eligible to swim in events that they have achieved Junior Olympic qualifying times in.  They may not compete in events that they have achieved State qualifying times in.  This is one of the Championship Meets that our swimmers have been working so hard for since September.

The Junior Olympics is divided into 3 different championship meets (Red, White, and Blue).  GLT will be competing in the White Junior Olympics being hosted by LL/HVP at Lake Orion High School March 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.  Lake Orion High School is located at 495 E. Scripps Rd, Lake Orion, MI 48360.

Deadline:  The deadline to sign-up for the Junior Olympic Championship is Sunday February 25th, 2018

Eligibility – The Michigan Swimming White Junior Olympic Meet is the middle level meet (Above Districts and below State Championship meets) Thus, it is a “Faster than / Slower than” time standard swim meet. All swimmers must be currently registered with Michigan Swimming and United States of America Swimming (USA-S). A swimmer's age on March 2nd, 2018 will determine his/her eligibility for a particular age group.

Meet Format – The format at each of the three Junior Olympics Championship Meets is identical. All events are timed finals. All 10 & Under and 11-12 age groups will swim in the AM sessions. All 13-18’s will swim in the PM sessions. Relays are offered. The 13-18 Age group events will be swum together but split into 13&14 and 15-18 age groups for awards. All events will be swum slowest to fastest except for the 400 IM, 500 Freestyle,1000 Freestyle, and the 1650 Freestyle which will be swum fastest to slowest. The 400 IM, 500 Freestyle and the 13-18 1650 Freestyle will also be swum alternating genders female/male.

Entry Procedures: Michigan Swimming has adopted USA Swimming's OME (Online Meet Entry) as the sole process for entering teams and individual swimmers into the State Meet.  Times achieved at any USA Swimming sanctioned, observed or approved meet will appear in OME.  GLT Coaches will enter all swimmers into the meet using the OME.  GLT Swimmers can sign up for their events on our website.  All events for the Junior Olympic Championship Meet should be discussed with your child's coach prior to the entry deadline.

Relays: Swimmers may compete in 1 relay per day.  Each team is limited to swim an A and B relay.  Since this is a Championship Meet, GLT coaches will be choosing the fastest relays possible to compete.  GLT will be covering the expense for relays.  If your child isn’t interested in participating in a relay, please make sure that you include this in the note section when signing your child up for the meet.  If not, GLT Coaches will assume that your child is eligible to compete in a relay.

Check-In: All swimmers are required to check-in starting 30 minutes before the start of warm-up.  We would like all of our swimmers to check-in and show up 15 minutes before the start of Warm-Up.  This allows the coaches to warm-up all of our swimmers together as a team.  The check-in sheets will be posted outside in the hallway before you enter the locker rooms.  

Fees are as follow: $5.00 per individual event, $5.00 MI Swim surcharge per swimmer and $7.00 GLT surcharge per swimmer. Relays will be selected by the GLT Coaches and paid for by the team.

Please make sure you indicate in the Note Section anything you feel is important for the Coaches to know.  If your child can only swim on certain days you must include that in the note section, otherwise Coaches will assume that your child can swim all 3 days.  Please note, the Coaches will be selecting the events that they feel will benefit your swimmer.
