Swimmers who have 3, 4 or 5 AA cuts are welcome to participate, but are not required.

This meet is prelims-finals for 11 and overs, meaning top swimmers from the 11 and over morning session may qualify for the finals meet in the evening of the same day. We want all AMFY swimmers who qualify for finals to participate. The finals is held at the same location (Trotwood Madison) as prelims.

On some occasions we will take swimmers who have NOT qualified individually to use on relays. We require all AMFY swimmers who qualify for AA Champs to attend this meet and swim the events for which they qualify. This is our biggest meet of the year for the team, so we want full and enthusiastic participation from our swimmers.

Zone Champs (March 15-17)

Location: Ohio State University, McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion

Qualification standards: Achieve Zone times

The Zone level champs is open to any swimmers who have achieved at least one Zone qualifying time in an individual event. We will take swimmers who have NOT qualified individually to use on relays if our relay meets the qualifying standard. We strongly encourage AMFY swimmers who qualify for Zone Champs to attend this meet and swim the events for which they qualify. It is a big honor to qualify for this meet. While we do not make participation mandatory, keep in mind that if a swimmer on a relay team that qualifies for Zones chooses NOT to participate at Zones, it may prevent the other relay swimmers from attending as well. 

There is no 8 and under category for this meet. 8 and unders can technically qualify, but they must meet 9-10 year old standards. This meet is timed finals. There are no evening finals sessions for swimmers.

 

YMCA National Championships (April 1-5)

Location: Greensboro Aquatic Center, Greensboro NC

Qualification standards: Achieve National times

The YMCA National Championships is the highest level of YMCA competition. Participants must achieve a National qualifying time in an individual event. On some occasions we will take swimmers who have NOT qualified individually to use on relays, but we strongly prefer to use swimmers with individual cuts to swim relays. There are no age groups at this meet. A swimmer must be at least 12 years old on day one of the meet to be eligible to participate. Typically only high school aged swimmers qualify for this meet.

This is a week-long meet with prelims and finals every day. It is often a crowning achievement to qualify for this meet, and is a HUGE honor to participate. While we do not require those who qualify to attend, we strongly encourage those who qualify to swim the events for which they qualify. Since this meet is during weekdays, the swimmers should make advance arrangements with schools to ensure they are properly excused from classes that week.

Participation at practice in the weeks leading up to the meet is mandatory for those who plan to attend.
