CHAMPIONSHIP MEETS:

Not all of the Championship meets require qualifying times to participate. However, all YMCA Championship meets do require that the swimmer be a member in good standing with his/her YMCA for 90 days prior to the meet and he/she must have competed in three (3) YMCA meets held on separate dates during the regular season. Please keep in mind each day of a multi-day meet counts towards meeting the 3-meet requirement (e.g. swimming on Saturday and Sunday of a meet counts as 2 meets!).
