WINTER Championship Meet Summary - Age Group (ages 14 & under)

Below is a summary for Ohio Championship meets that NAAC will compete in during the winter season. These meets are in addition to regular meets held throughout the season. All swimmers are expected to swim in the highest level championship meet for which they qualify. Your primary group coach will assist you in your planning.

OHIO REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

February (Dayton, Cincinnati, Columbus, and Toledo)
There are six (6) Ohio REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP meets in Ohio: Dayton, 2x Columbus, 2x Cincinnati, and Toledo. The New Albany Aquatics Club is assigned to one of the Columbus area meets, usually held at Thomas Worthington High School and/or Upper Arlington High School. This 3-day championships meet (Fri-Sat-Sun format) is for swimmers in the 10-under, 11-12, and 13-14 age groups. All 14-under swimmers slower than the OHIO JUNIOR OLYMPIC time standard in a particular event compete at the REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS in those events. This meet is a prelim/final format, which means everyone swims their events during preliminary heats the morning. Then, the top 16 swimmers in each even return to swim finals at night. Medals are given to 1-8 place and ribbons are awarded to 9-16 place. Awards are only given to swimmers in finals. Swimmers who achieve an Ohio JUNIOR OLYMPIC time standard at the REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS, regardless of where they place or when they swam the event (prelims or finals) automatically qualify for the OHIO JUNIOR OLYMPIC STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS which takes place a few weeks later (see below).

TIME TRIAL QUALIFIER MEET

February Tuesday after REGIONAL CHAMPS (Upper Arlington, Ohio)
(Swimmers ONLY deck enter at the meet)  Between the REGIONAL and JUNIOR OLYMPIC Championship meets, this is a special "Last Chance" Qualifier one-day session for swimmers who want to attempt to achieve a time standard outside of the championship meets above. This meet typically takes place during one evening after school, usually falling on a Tuesday. Swimmers 14 and under may participate in this event. The criteria are that swimmers must be close to the time standard he/she is attempting to achieve in order to enter the event. No awards are given at a "LAST CHANCE" MEET. This Qualifier meet is an excellent option to consider - but you should always get the opinions of your group coach.

OHIO JUNIOR OLYMPIC STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS (JO's)

March (Bowling Green, OU or OSU)
There is one (1) OHIO JO SHORT COURSE CHAMPIONSHIP meet in Ohio. This 3-day championship meet is for swimmers in the 10-under, 11-12, and 13-14 age groups. There is team scoring at this meet. All swimmers who have achieved a JO time standard at any time during the season and who are members of JO relays are expected to compete at the state meet. This meet is a prelim/final format. Medals are given to 1-8 place and ribbons are awarded to 9-16 place at finals only. Also, an award is presented to the Ohio Outstanding "Male" and "Female" Swimmer of the Meet Award to the swimmer that scores the most Power Points (a scoring system that is part of USA-Swimming's "IMX CHALLENGE" program which is based on the cumulative point total of each individual race the JO Championships; points are generated based on age and event. Age Group "High Point" winners are also awarded.

WINTER Championship Meet Summary  Senior Age (15 & Over)

Below is a summary for Ohio Championship meets that NAAC swimmers will compete in during the winter season. These meets are in addition to regular meets held throughout the season.  Swimmers are expected to compete in the highest level meet for which they qualify AND NAAC is attending. Your primary group coach will assist you in your planning. Please keep in mind that once a Middle School or High School swimmer competes in a meet for their MS or HS, they are not allowed to compete for NAAC until the last meet of their MS or HS Season.

High School Championships are not USA-Swimming competitions. High School Districts and State Championships are technically USA official observed meets and are counted for time standards by USA swimming. High School Sectionals are not observed and do not count towards USA swimming time standards.

OHIO SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS
Now in December as of 2015, usually in Oxford (OH)

There is one (1) Ohio SENIOR Short Course Championship meet in Ohio. This meet is setup for swimmers who are 15-over and 14-under high school swimmers.  The Ohio SENIOR Championships is a prelim/finals format. The Head Coach will discuss with all senior aged swimmers if they are to attend this meet.

 HIGH SCHOOL SECTIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
Various locations throughout Ohio in early Feb

All HS swimmers compete at the SECTIONAL level. This is the first step to the "Road to Canton". High School swimmers are entered in a maximum of two (2) individual events and two (2) relay events (or 3 relay events if only one individual event) by their respective high school coach. If swimmers place high enough in their event(s) after all of the SECTIONAL results are compiled, then he/she advances to the DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIPS on the following weekend. The boys and girls are broken into two divisions, Div. I and Div. II. Contact your high school for information on what division you compete in.

HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIPS
Ohio State University (OH) mid Feb

There are four (4) DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIPS held throughout the state of Ohio. If a swimmer places high enough in their respective event(s) after all of the DISTRICT results are compiled, then he/she advances to the STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS on the following weekend.? There are automatic AND at-large qualifiers (based on fastest times in the State) per event.

HIGH SCHOOL STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS
Canton (OH) late Feb

Regarded as one of the fastest and most exciting state meets in the country, the OHIO HIGH SCHOOL STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS is one of the highest levels of high school competition found anywhere. Almost every year Ohio swimmers are recognized as national individual champions and/or National Team Champions because Ohio is one of the strongest swimming States in the USA. Only the top 24 swimmers and top 24 relays in the state qualify for this event per Division, per B & G. The meet is a two-day format with preliminary swimming on day 1 and finals (top 16) on day 2. The crowd is packed with people cheering on every race, as well as college recruiters throughout the crowd watching prospective athletes compete. All boys and girls throughout Ohio are divided into "Div I" and "Div II" based on school population sizes.


USA SPEEDO SECTIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
March and August, locations TBD, (usually in OH or IN)

The Sectional Championship Meet is for senior swimmers who meet strict SECTIONAL qualification standards. (Visit the time standards section to see the qualifications for this meet). There are several "sections" across the country (we are in section 3). The format for this meet was established in 2000 by USA-Swimming . Most swimmers who qualify for the sectional meet are expected to compete at this meet IN THE SUMMER & the Head Coach will guide senior swimmers on the entries for this meet.  NAAC most often participates in the NCSA Jr National Meet as a top meet at the end of the Winter season (see below).

NCSA SC JUNIOR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
March, usually in Orlando, Florida

Spring Juniors, since returning early 2002 by a coaches? organization called NCSA, have been mainly held in Florida, and is most often a short course (SC) meet. The cuts are located on the NCSA website. This meet most often occurs 2 to 3 weeks post the HS State meet, and any swimmer(s) must maintain their commitment to practices leading up to NCSA Jr's if they will be attending.  A lot of fun for those that can qualify!

WINTER USA JR NATIONALS and/or SR NATIONALS

Winter Juniors are often held in conjunction with Sr. Nationals, but some years the meets are not held close together in proximity, and there are now often 2 locations (East and West Coast) for the Jr Meet.   The location can be anywhere in the US, and both meets are most often held sometime over the first two weeks of December.  Cuts are posted by USA swimming with the meet packet (and they are FAST!).
