Ribbons / Incentives

Swim Meet Ribbons

The Dublin Green Gators ribbon awarding guidelines are as follows: Everyone who swims will receive a ribbon. No ribbons will be given out during a meet. Please ask your swimmers not to question ribbon writers at the meet. Ribbons will be awarded to the swimmers the following week at practice. Ribbons are awarded for 1st through 4th place. A participant ribbon will be given to any swimmer participating, but not placing in the meet. Please be aware that other teams have their own policies for awarding ribbons. Ribbons are provided by the host team.

Patch Awards

Patches will be given to the swimmers who have beaten the time listed under “patch award times” shown in the Dublin Green Gator’s team manual.  Swimmers will only receive each patch award once per stroke. 

Personal Best Awards

A sticker and candy will be given to swimmers ages 10 and under who have dropped their time in all events from the previous meet.
