Just a reminder, attendance at this meet is extremely important! Numbers make a huge difference and everyone can contribute in some way. As with all SMSL meets we assume swimmers will attend.  If your swimmer(s) will be unable to attend the meet please sign out on your team account ASAP. A great deal of time and effort goes into planning the line up for this meet so it is important to know who will be there and who will not. We will be placing the swimmers in the the events they will preform and place the best for the TEAM.  All the teams in the league are required to provide meet workers for the championship meet. You can sign up via your team account or by using the link below. (be sure you are logged in) See what you can do to help. Please be sure you sign up for the correct session!

Friday before the meet will be a very important practice to attend, please make every effort! We will be having our team picture at 6:30 pm on Friday, March 21st at the pool. Parents please bring your cameras to get your team photo, we will not have a formal photographer. Also on Friday, in an effort to save time on Saturday, we will pre-mark all the 10 & under swimmers hands for the next day. If some parents would like to help out with this as well that would be awesome.
 
For those you you new to the team or if you want a little more information about this meet see below. As always if you have any questions please let me know.
 

What are Championships? 

The Super Bowl of SMSL swimming! This is the meet that the athletes have worked all season for and it is a lot of fun!  We strongly encourage everyone to participate. Every member of this team has an important role and makes a contribution!

 

Each age group swims against all the other age groups in the league. For example all of our 8 & unders will compete with all the other 8 & under swimmers in SMSL. The meet includes all the events that were swam in the dual meets throughout the season.  Each swimmer is allowed to swim up to four events at least one of which must be a relay. 

 

Scoring:

  • Four swimmers from each team can score in each individual event
  • Two relays from each team are allowed to score in each relay event
  • Scores are kept throughout each age group with all scores added together to determine how we finish as a team.
  • The meet would not be the same without maximum participation.  Numbers do make a difference!
