The next goal after sub-4 is to make your first "A" Time standard. The time standards are put out by Swim BC and are created as entry level points for the AA and AAA Provincial Championships. KISU uses the A time standard as an entry point for the upcoming Kamloops meet (Dec. 14 - 16). Once swimmers achieve the time standard they are eligible to attend the meet.
The Kamloops Meet is our first Championship meet of the season with three full days of heats and finals. Clubs from the Lower Mainland and Alberta often attend this meet. It is a great opportunity for KISU swimmers to be exposed to some FAST swimming. The registration for this meet is EARLY (Nov. 12). We will still allow swimmers who qualify at the Kelowna Meet to register, but we want to have an idea of numbers so we can start planning for the travel.
KISU encourages our swimmers to participate in Team Travel for this meet. Team Travel is a great experience that prepares them for future meets and Regional and Provincial Teams. If parents would like to attend, we encourage you to consider being a chaperone.
Please find attached a file with best times and the time difference between each swimmer's events and the A standard. If there are events where there is no time difference, it is possible that they are not Provincial Championship events (Swim BC follows the same event schedule as the Olympics (50 Free, 100s of each stroke, 200s of each stroke, 400 Free and IM, 800 Free for girls and 1500 Free for boys). /cankisu/UserFiles/File/time%20difference%20to%20a%20standard.pdf
