Welcome to the 2018 SPRING NASA BLAST OFF! We are very excited to have you guys back this year!!
Email from NASA (4/19/2018):
This meet is a CLOSED meet hosted by NASA/WILD Swim Club. There are qualifying times for this meet. As outlined in the meet packet, the entry qualification will be the "B Min" time standard for Long Course Meters (LCM) from the 2017-2020 National Age Group Motivational Times (see attached and review the listed qualifying times in the meet packet). The Girls and Boys Open time standards are derived from the 15-16 Age Level.
We have left the meet entry for this meet as "Commit by Event" so that it can easily be determined if your swimmer(s) are qualified for the meet. The Coaching Staff will review the entries to determine that they make sense for the swimmer and the timeline.
Since not all of our swimmers will be able to get into this meet due to the qualification requirements, we will also be attending the 3nd Annual Oak Forest (OFSA) Kickoff to Summer ISI meet on Saturday, May 12. We are NOT allowing swimmers that compete in the NASA Meet to compete in the OFSA Meet. The OFSA Meet is intended for those swimmers NOT having the "B Min" qualifying times.
Swimmers will be limited to three (3) events per day.
All teams MAY BE REQUIRED to provide timers for 1-2 lanes (2-4 timers) each session.
Due to the $10 swimmer surcharge included by NASA/WILD for the meet, there will be no admissions fees. Heat sheets will be sold for $2.
NASA reserves the right to limit the following events to the
fastest 24 or fewer entries if the four-hour rule
- Friday Evening: 400 Free*
- Saturday Morning: 200 I.M. & 200 Medley Relay
- Saturday Afternoon: 400 I.M.* & 200 Medley Relay
- Sunday Morning: 200 Freestyle & 200 Free Relay
- Sunday Afternoon: 200 Medley Relays
