Below is a List of Potential Dates for meets. I believe that these meets will be accurate but could change based on interest from swimmers and meet cancellations. This list is being provided so that families can plan their weekends accordingly.
Pass meets are for those swimmers that do not have their 4:00 200 IM. They are not sanctioned and provide a meet for swimmers to go and try out a meet. There are no stroke and turn judges at these meets. They are fun!
LMR meets mean that swimmers are required to have their under 4:00 200 IM time and perform it legally according to the FINA rules. ie two hand touches on fly and breast stroke, etc.
Tier meets have qualifying standards that rank swimmers in the top 50 in BC. Tier 1 requires swimmers to meet the 200IM time standard as well as one other event. Swimmers can then choose up to 8 events at the meet. Tier 2 only requires swimmers to make one time standard but swimmers can only swim those events that they qualify in.
The Hollyburn meets do not require the 4:00 200 IM. Also the Whistler meet does not have that standard. These meets are open to anyone that would like to go that are capable of swimming the distance of the events.
Hopes this helps to clarify the swimming Lingo. Always feel free to ask me questions! This info is new to everyone at some point and can be very confusing.
