Who is Invited to All Stars?
All Stars Selection Process
The Colorado All Star Team is selected using a high point system for Colorado swimmers 14 & Under in the following age categories: 10 & Under, 11-12, 13-14. Using the USA Swimming database, top times are obtained for each gender and age category for only the events swum at the Midwest All Star meet. In addition, only times achieved between the start of the 2016-2017 Short Course season and the completion of the CSI Pioneer Open meet are eligible for All Star consideration. Swimmers will be considered in the age category in which they fall based on their age at the first day of the Midwest All Star meet. The overall top 10 swimmers in each gender and age category will be selected to the Colorado All Star team. In addition, the top finisher in each gender and age category will automatically be selected to the team, regardless of overall points.
Tops Pioneer Open and the All Star Meet
The Pioneer Open, held in mid-December, is the last chance to qualify for the All Star meet
Swimmers interested in the All Star meet should speak with their coach before deciding on events for the Pioneer Open.
The All Star selection process is based on a point system that basically rewards the all-around swimmer. Swimmers need to look at all of their best times before entering the Pioneer Open to see which events need improvement; some times may need a boost, especially events that haven't been done in a while.
Ask your group coach for guidance.
