Winter Juniors: Coaches please read

Club Contacts, please pass this message along to your coaches.


Lakeside Aquatic Club is planning on hosting the USA Swimming 18 and Under Winter Championships December 10-13th at the Westside Aquatic Center in Lewisville for all Texas teams. LAC, Lewisville ISD believes we can run a safe and fast meet, but we need some information from everyone prior to receiving the meet information. 

Our plan is to run two different flights (2 prelim sessions) in prelims. The first session would be the faster seeded kids. These swimmers would most likely will make finals and therefore get the most time between prelims and finals. The second session would be the next fastest kids, who also have a chance to make finals. We plan to have 250-300 swimmers per prelim session, based on each swimmer's fastest time standard.   

Therefore, I need to know how many SWIMMERS AND COACHES you plan on sending to the meet.  Please let us know how many swimmers have achieved 1 of the following time standard.

  • 2019 Winter Junior Time Standard- a minimum of one (1) event achieved
  • 2020 USA Swimming 18 and Under Winter Championship Time Standard to a 2019 Winter Junior Time Standard

Based on this information we will split up the prelim into two flights. 

Please send me an email to Jason Walter ( no later than Tuesday, October 13 by noon if you plan on attending our meet.  We will need to know your athlete count you are sending to the meet and what time standard category they fall into.  I understand your count may be off by a couple athletes who may achieve the time standard between now and the entry deadline.  However, I cannot have it off by much more than a few as we are operating in a tight window. 

This meet will follow the same format as past Winter Junior Nationals.  We plan on running the following event order including relays!
