Zones Selection Clarification?
June 15, 2016
RE: Age Group Zone Meet Selection Process
This is to clarify the role of the new events at the 2016 SES Long Course Championships (50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly for 13-14 and Senior) and how they will affect the selection of the Southeastern Zone All-Star Team for 2016.
For 2016, the 13-14 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly and the Senior 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly shall not be considered for any qualification purposes in determining the 2016 Southeastern Swimming Age Group Zone All Star Team.
Reasons for clarification:
1) These events were not addressed in any manner for legislation at the Fall Meetings to make changes to the previously adopted Zone Selection Process.
2) This is the first year of these events at the Southeastern Championships, thus there is no historical data to draw from when making informed changes to the selection process.
3) The 50 Back, 50 Breast, and 50 Fly are not contested individually for 13-14 or 15-18 age groups at the Zone meet itself. (NOTE: They are a part of the 200 Relays, however the meet now also features 400 Relays as well)
We hope this will alleviate any confusion as you prepare to do your Southeastern Meet Entries.
