Meet Descriptions

League Championships (or "A Champs") is the league individual championships where only swimmers/divers with the top 18 times/scores (plus 2 alternates) in the entire league in each event are eligible. Coaches notify swimmers/divers of their eligibility for Leagues Championships after a league seed meeting on Tues 1/27. Meet dates and times are here. 

ALL swimmers/divers are eligible for Division Championships, or "B Champs", (but cannot swim in events for which they qualified in League Championships and there is a limit on the combined number of entries for both Championships). The Division Swimming Championships are divisional: each division holds a championship meet. LMSD's divisional meet will be held at Council Rock South. Swimmers are seeded according to their best times for a particular event. A swimmer may compete in a max of 3 individual events and 2 relays. 

Note: Athletes must have competed in at least 40% of dual meets, as a swimmer and/or as a diver, to be eligible for League Championships.

FAQ for A & B Champs

 
My son wants to compete at A and B champs. How do I enter him for either A and/or B Champs? 
Fill out the below "A & B Champs Entry Form" by Sat 1/24 11:59p. 
 
I see on the current Top Times list my daughter is 25th place in the 50 Back. Does she have a chance of qualifying for A Champs, even though she is not currently top 18?
Yes. Not all swimmers listed in each event will choose to swim that particular event. Traditionally, a swimmer who is top 30 in an event has a chance of being selected to compete at A Champs. If your swimmer is close to the top 30 and they want to swim at A Champs, go ahead and choose the "A Champs" option in the "A & B Champs Entry Form".
 
If my son doesn't qualify for an individual event at A Champs, can he still do a relay at A Champs? 
Yes. Just choose the "I want to do A and B Champs" option in the "A & B Champs Entry Form". 
 
My daughter qualified to be an alternate (19th and 20th place) in the 100 Back for A Champs, can she still swim the 100 Back at B Champs? 
Yes, she can still swim the 100 Back at B Champs and then swim it again at A Champs.
