Dual Meets

Information about Dual Meets

We participate in 5 Dual Meets against teams from the PPSL League each season, 1 a week.    Meets are Thursday Night EXCEPT when there's a holiday conflict.     The schedule will be posted on this website.

Directions to each pool are listed under Pool Locations.   Please leave leave early enough for traffic.

Meets start as follows: Diving at 4:00,  Swimming at 7:00.

WARMUPS: Athletes must attend warmups unless you otherwise contact the coach.      Please be ready to hit the water at the start of warmups.

DIVING:       Home Meets: 3:00 - arrive by 2:50.      Away Meets: 3:30 - arrive by 3:20.

SWIMMING: Home Meets: 6:00 - arrive by 5:45.     Away Meets: 6:30 - arrive by 6:15.

In the case of weather, we will attempt to wait out the weather but will call the meet if forecast supports it.  We will attempt to advise you of the status by email/txt should the weather threaten the start of the meet.    We will attempt to start the meet even if forecasted to threaten later.

LINEUPS:    

The coaches are responsible for the lineups.   They are limited to 3 or 4 'competition' (scoring) entries.    But all kids will swim even if exhibition.      

Ribbons are awarded by 'heat'.     All kids 10&Under will receive ribbons for either place or best effort.       Kids 11&Over will receive place ribbons 1-3.    

In swimming: each athlete may swim 2 individual events and 2 relays.     We can enter up to 3 or 4 relays (depending on lanes at the pool). 

Disqualification: There are swim & dive rules.    For swimming, the rules apply to strokes and turn/finish.     Generally, Judges agree to NOT DQ an exhibition swimmer.      They are required to DQ competition heat (last heat) swimmers when observing an infraction.      'A' championships will strictly follow stroke and turn/finish rules so it's in the best interest of the swimmer to be 'judged' in dual meets - that's how we learn.     Please reinforce this to your swimmer.

Meet Results: When the internet/technology cooperates, we will deliver real time results thru the Meet Mobile ios/android application.     There is a fee to use this app.     We will also publish a Meet Results report on our website for both Swimming & Diving.

Lane assignments:    Odd lanes at Home Meets, Even lanes Away.     Heats may be combined to avoid excessive empty lanes.
