Swim meets are how we guage how a swimmer is progressing.  Practice is important, however, meets are crucial to swimmer advancement.  Not only do swimmers need to learn the strokes, turns and starts, they also need to learn to compete. It is normal to be nervous or afraid when you first start to compete, but, it becomes easier with every meet. 
All swimmer should swim a minimum of 3 AMS meets per season.  Gold and Silver need to compete in 6 meets or more. While it is not necessary to swim both days of a meet, it is highly recommended so that the swimmer can become accustomed to meet schedules and not miss out on certain events that would be missed by only swimming one day of the meet.
Meets that are noted with NQT are No Qualifying Time meets.  Any and all swimmers should sign up for these meets.  For the 2017-18 Short Course season, there are 7 meets that fit the NQT criteria in some way.  If you are unsure about qualifying for any meet, sign up or ask Coach Rick and he will let you know if your swimmer is able to participate in a particular meet.
