Teaching Tuesday

The Team Georgia application was recently posted for the 2018 Southern Zone Age Group Championships. Within the rules of USA Swimming, the Zone Age Group Championship is a mandatory meet for all zones and may be found under Section 205.6. Learn more about the program in this week's Teaching Tuesday.
 

Timers Needed for Age Group State

There are up to 20 volunteer timing slots available for Age Group State Championship Prelims on Saturday and/or Sunday from 8am-12:30pm. Volunteers will receive a shirt and any volunteer credit hours, if needed. This is a great opportunity for senior athletes to volunteer and support the younger swimmers in the LSC! Those interested should contact Hugh Convery at hugh@gwinnettaquatics.com​.

 

Age Group Zone Team Application Available

Apply Here for the Team Georgia trip to Midland, TX for the 2018 Southern Zone Age Group Championships.

Selection Process:

Age Group athletes for the Age Group Zone Team are chosen through an application process and point system. To be considered, interested athletes must submit a Zone Team Application prior to the start of the meet. There is a non-refundable $25 application fee for all applicants.

Selection process was amended on August 26, 2017.

The Zone Team will be selected using the following process:

  1. There will be eight (8) swimmers selected for each of the 11-12 girls, 11-12 boys, 13-14 girls and 13-14 boys age groups. There will also be six (6) disabled athletes selected to the team: three (3) males and three (3) females.

  2. The swimmers who finish the meet in the highest ranking amongst those who have applied for the team in the 100 Free, 100 Back, 100 Breast and 100 Fly for each age group will be selected as automatic qualifiers. In the event of a tie between two or more applicants in finals for the highest spot in one of those events, the automatic spot on the Zone Team will be given to the swimmer who had the fastest time in Prelims. It is possible for multiple 100’s to be won by a single individual. In this case, the 2nd place individual is not an automatic qualifier but would earn 2nd place points towards the at-large selection process. After the normal automatic qualifiers, the remaining spots are scored to 10th place (11, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1). 

  3. The remaining spots for each age group will be determined by individual scoring based on their ranking among the other applicants using the final ranking of those swimmers in the meet. Any swimmer who scratches finals in an event will not be scored in that event. All events will be scored. The six (6) highest placing swims will be considered for all eligible athletes (other swims will be discarded). In the event of a tie, the highest individual finish in any event shall determine the winner. This process will be repeated until the tie is broken.

A Hy-tek file of all swimmers attempting to qualify for the Zone Team must be included with team entries for the Age Group State Championship. This file must contain the best LCM times for each of those swimmers from the present long course season.
