NEW BVSSL SCORING RULE
BVSSL has made some changes to the way our meets are compiled and scored. Following is a brief outline of the impacts of the new rules:
- An individual swimmer is able to now score from any heat (unlike previous years where only the first heat scored and the rest of the heats were exhibitioned)
- Each team is only
allowed 3 scorers: only the top 3 swimmers within each
individual team scores and receives ribbons, regardless of where
they placed within the event.
- For example: A Dolphin swimmer may have the 4th fastest time overall, but does not qualify to score or receive a ribbon if Dolphin swimmers have already placed 1st through 3rd within that event.
- Furthermore, the opposing team may have an 8th place overall, but is the fastest within their team and therefore will receive the 4th place points and ribbon.
NEW DOLPHIN S.W.A.A.T. TEAM AWARD
Swimmers With All-Around Talent. Swimmers who post a legal time in each of their respective 7 individual events will be recognized for their efforts at the Team Awards Banquet in July and receive a special gift. So don't wait until the final meet, get going now!
