Description

MICHIGAN 12 & UNDER LC STATE CHAMPIONSHIP

Holland Community Aquatic Center

550 Maple, Holland, MI 49423

This is the State Championship Meet for our 12 and Under swimmers. Swimmers must have State (Q1) qualifying times for their age group.

Eligibility: All swimmers who have achieved an actual short course yards, short course meters, or long course meters time equal to or faster than the qualifying standards (referred to as Q1 Times) during the qualifying period are eligible to enter this meet. A list of current qualifying times has been uploaded with this document. No time conversions are permitted.

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. GPG Coaches will enter all swimmers into the meet using the OME. GPG swimmers can sign up for their events on our website. All events for the State Meet should be discussed with your child's coach prior to the entry deadline.

Meet Format: Individual events are swum in the 3-day prelim/final format. Preliminaries are swum in the morning with the top 8 swimmers after prelims swimming in the "A Final" and the 9th - 16th swimmers in the “B Final” in the evening. The following individual events are swum as timed finals (one-swim only): 11 & 12 400 IM, 400, 800 and 1500 Freestyle, 10 & Under 400 Freestyle. The top 8 seeded swimmers (after scratches) in the 11 & 12 400 IM, 400 Free, and 10 & U 400 Free will swim in finals. All 11 & 12 800 and 1500 Free swimmers will swim after the 200 Medley Relays at the end of prelims on Sunday. All relays are timed finals. The 200 Free Relays will be swum at the end of the finals session on Saturday. The 200 Medley Relays will be swum at the end of the prelim session on Sunday, before the 800 and 1500 Free.

Relays will be offered for all age groups. There are qualifying times for the relays and the Coaches will be putting relays together based upon swimmer’s times. All swimmers will be looked at as potential relay swimmers. “Relay Only Swimmers” can participate in this meet.

Seeding: During Prelims the fastest 3 heats will be circle seeding. The remainder of the heats will be seeded slowest to fastest, except for the 11 & 12 400 IM, 400, 800 and 1500 free, and 10 & U 400 Free, which will be seeded fastest to slowest and alternating gender.

Entry Limits: Swimmers may not swim more than 3 individual events per day and no more than 6 individual events and 2 relays for the entire 3 day meet. However, swimmers may enter additional events and scratch events to meet the limit at the meet.

Fees: $7.50 per individual event, $3.00 MI Swimming surcharge per swimmer and $30.00 GPG surcharge per swimmer. Relays will be paid for by the team.

Time Trials: Time permitting, at the discretion of the Meet Referee and Meet Director, time trials for athletes may be offered each day 15 minutes after the completion of the preliminary session. Athletes must be already entered in the meet to swim a time trial. Time trials do count against the maximum per day entry limit of three (3) but not against the total meet entry limit of six (6) and are limited to no more than two (2) per day. The entry fee is $7.50 per individual event and $15.00 for relays. Time trials sign up will be from 10:00 am each day of the meet.
