Swim meets provide an excellent opportunity for swimmers and coaches to judge an athlete's progress and gauge our training methods. Times definitely help in the evaluation process, but equally as important, we are able to examine a swimmer's technique more closely.
Swimmers should try to attend one swim meet per month. Please check with your group coach for further expectations.
Swimmers qualifying for Championship meets, Silver State, Short Course State, Long Course State, Senior State, etc., are expected to participate.
Prelim/Final Formatted Swim Meets
Swimmers qualifying for Finals are expected to swim Finals.
Parents and swimmers need to be aware of USA Swimming's scratch rule and regulations.
Our coaching staff is confident our swimmers have an excellent understanding of the events they ought to be swimming when entering a meet and feel comfortable letting swimmers select their own events. However, our coaches are always available to provide recommendations and guidance, notably for new members.
There are certain meets our coaches will help swimmers select their events; group coaches might want the entire group to swim a particular event(s), or have an individual try something more challenging.
For championship meets, coaches and swimmers will review all qualified events before making a decision on entries.
DSA coaches approve all entries from their group before sending them to the meet director. If they feel a change needs to be made to a swimmer's entries, they will review with the swimmer and make any necessary changes.
