Senior Group Swimmers and Parents;

Below is some information on the two travel meets offered in June.

Traveling during the season (for the Summer this is June Meet) and competing at a good meet is a key to great end of season performances. Both of the meets offered will provide excellent competition. Swimmers should choose the meet based on time standards and level of competition. The meets are going to be held the same weekend. We will have full coaching staffs at both meets.

Over the past several years we have attended the Invitational at the Woodlands. The Woodlands pool is under renovation and the meet is not being held. This Summer - we have 2 great meet options for our travel meets in June. Swimmers need to pick the appropriate meet and the info in this note is intended to help. Please read through and ask me any questions. We will review again at practice today.

Utah – there are several teams attending with strong senior group swimmers. The pool is fast and the event order offers every event and relays. The cost of the meet has been posted along with some details and the meet format.

Mission Viejo – This is a high power senior meet and the meet this year will be big. Because Nationals and Junior Nationals are outdoors (and being held within 10 miles of this pool) this is a great chance to get used to racing outside. The meet will be flighted into A and B groups. I will review this process at practice. Usually the top 40 entrants will be in the “A” flight. A past meet result link is below so you can see what it took to score. You may be able to look this up on meet mobile also. Swimmers attending should have a reasonable expectation of scoring in the meet.

It is important to decide between the two meets and commit for your choice soon!
