2019 Silver Championships - Feb 22nd thru 24th
This is a US Championship meet with more challenging cut off times. The times are posted on our site under qualifying times. However the easiest way to see if your child qualifies would be to go to Events then click on "Edit Commitment" then on childs name and then underneath you will see all the events in your childs age group. It will show qualifying time all the way to the right and your childs best time on the left. You do need to sign up by Feb 15th (TODAY)
There are some other meets JO's, Senior Met's, etc.. These meets have very challenging qualifying standards which are also listed on our site. Most of the swimmers that have made these cuts should already know about this. While it is ultimately swimmers/parents job to monitor if they qualify for a meet, the coaches would typically have mentioned to you if you qualified for one of these meets
Please NOTE it is very difficult for the swim board to monitor everything in which our swimmers qualify for. We do our best to pull the data best we can, but ultimately it is on the parents/swimmers to stay on top of this as well. We know for the new parents/swimmers it is difficult, so please don't hesitate to reach out to a board member or to send an email to Vacswiminfo@gmail.com with any questions
