High School Championship Meets - Best Time Instructions

Parents & Swimmers,

High school championship meets (Conferences, Regions, States, Metros, WMPSSDL, etc.) can be observed by Potomac Valley Swimming and times from these meets are eligible to be used for future York meets.

It is important that you communicate with your high school coach and follow their directions to ensure your times are posted to the USA Swimming database (SWIMS) and can be entered into our team database.  Usually this means giving your high school coach your USA Swimming ID Number which consists of your six digit birthday, the first three letters of your first name, middle initial and first four letters of your last name.  Example: John Christopher Smith – Birthday November 24, 2002 – 112402JOHCSMIT

If you go a best time during high school championships and you have confirmed with your coach that the meet is a “Potomac Valley Swimming Observed Meet”, please email the following information to Kristin ( ) within a week of the swim so the updated times can be entered into our team database:

  • Meet Name
  • Location (City)
  • Pool Name
  • Age at the Meet
  • Date of Swim
  • Event
  • Time (best times only please)
