I just sent out the GJ Invite Information. I forgot to change the sytem deadline. I will need entries by May 3rd. This will be a great experience for the athletes. We always enjoy swimming in GJ and we will do a team rafting trip on the way home Monday.
Here are some notes about the meet:
**This is a prelim/final 4 day meet for 11 and Over events. 10
and Under events will be timed finals (meaning they race once in
the prelim session). This meet is for group 2 and up qualifiers
**There are qualification standards for events over 50 (no qual times for 12 and Under 50 free,fly,bk and breast) and there is a link to them at the bottom of the meet information. They are the National motiviational B standards. The chart may be confusing especially when looking at Short course and Long course. I can help you with that. It will probably be best to wait until after this weekend to see if your child is qualified. Almost all group 3 and 4 swimmers are qualified and a lot of group 2 right now. All Sectional group is qualified and quite a few SR group swimmers. This meet is sent out by group though so there will be some swimmers receiving this who are not yet qualified in events over a 50.
