The SRVA C/B/BB+
Meet is October 20 & 21, in San Ramon. This
meet is for AG1, AG2, AG3, and AG4 swimmers. Enter online as soon as entries
open. This meet will fill before the published entry
deadline. The most competitive race of the fall season is
to get entered into a meet before it closes (sometimes within 48
hours of opening and well before the published entry
deadline). If you would like to participate in the meet,
please enter it as soon as you can.

My best advice is
to mix a few races that your swimmer is comfortable swimming, with
a few longer races. Also, ease into the longer
...if your swimmer
has done 25's in the summer, then stick to 25's and 50's, and maybe
try the 100 free.
...if your swimmer
has done 50's in the summer, then stick with 50's and 100's at
first, before venturing into the 200 and longer
If you have a time
for a certain event, use that as your entry time. If you
don't have a time for a certain event, I would enter make an
educated guess (like double your 50 time and add 12 seconds), and
then err on the slow side.
Below is a primer
on how to navigate the online entries website. For entry
purposes, our club code is WCAB, and we are part of Pacific
Swimming. Your swimmer's USA Registration number will be
MMDDYYFFFMLLLL, MMDDYY is their birthdate, and FFF is the first 3
letters of their first name, M is middle initial, and LLLL is the
first 4 letters of their last name. If you have a shorter
name, or no middle initial, use the asterisk * as a place
