BBST ranked one of the Top 500 teams in the Nation for 2008-2009
USA Swimming Virtual Club Championships Program Description

Purpose: Recognize and highlight clubs that are developing athletes and achieving success at multiple levels in the club swimming continuum emphasizing the team element in club swimming. This program serves as a key part of the Athlete Development & Performance component of the Club Recognition Program.

Period: The  Virtual Club Championships will be tabulated annually for both the short course yards (SCY) and long course meter (LCM) seasons. Both SCY and LCM rankings will be tabulated using results achieved betweeen September 1 and August 31 of the following year. (Prior to the SCY 2008-2009 season the yards season was from 9/1 to 5/31 of the following year)

Tabulation: All registered USA Swimming clubs will be scored automatically. The USA Swimming Star Times Data Base will be used in combination with the Hy-Tek Single-Year Age Group Power Point system. The program will score single age groups from 11-16 years old and have a combined 17-18 age group. After all eligible swims have been scored using the power point system, a team score for each registered USA Swimming club will be calculated. The tabulation process occurs very early every morning.

Team Event Limit: Each team will be limited to two entries per event by age group and gender. The program will automatically tabulate which two events in combination with other teammates produce the highest team score.

View Options: A viewer has four options to look at their club ranking:

  1. If you select no option you will see all clubs sorted by national rank
  2. Select Club will see only the selected club (it will show the national rank and then show VCC rank=1)
  3. Only looking at clubs in their LSC (will show the national rank first then the rank within the LSC)
  4. Only looking at clubs in their Zone (will show the national rank first then the rank within the Zone)

"View Detail" Option: A team may choose to look at the detail summary chart by clicking on the View Detail link on the far right-hand side of the ranking. At the beginning of the report, the viewer will see a chart that will quickly give coaches the ability to assess strengths and weaknesses of the team.
