GKAISA City Championship Meet @ Allan Jones Aquatic Center
(this is a team hosted event)
City Championship Meet
July 27th-29th, 2018 at Allan Jones Aquatic Center on the UT campus
The City Meet in Knoxville is the GKAISA Championship Meet. The City Meet takes place at the Alan Jones Aquatic Center in Knoxville with all GKAISA teams participating. GKAISA requires that each swimmer has swum in at least two dual meets during the regular season to be eligible to enter City Meet. Year-round and first-year swimmers may participate in this meet. There will be an $10 fee to enter this meet for all Dolphin swimmers.
This meet is a three-day meet. The first two days are preliminaries with swimmers divided by age
groups. Friday is for swimmers aged 11 and older. Saturday is for swimmers aged 10 and under. The top 16 swimmers or relay teams for each event then compete on the third day, Sunday for finals and consolation finals. If your child wants to participate in the City Meet, you must be sure your child will be able to attend both the first day of his/her age group’s preliminary heats and the final/consolation heats day. Swimmers must also have swum in two dual meets or one dual meet and SMI during the current season. The Flying Dolphins team must pay a penalty fee to GKAISA for every swimmer who signs up and then does not show up on either day. There is nothing more frustrating to swimmers than to make it to the finals on a relay team and then have to withdraw because one swimmer did not show up for the finals on Sunday! Check with the coaches if you have questions about City Meet.
City Meet is held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Swimmers eleven years and older swim on Friday. Swimmers ten and under swim on Saturday. Finals are held on Sunday. Your swimmer MUST attend on Sunday if they make finals.
