The Neptunes compete in the Tri-State Swim League, attending nine "invitational" meets per season, plus two or three "dual" meets against teams in neighboring communities, plus a Tri-State Championship meets for those who make qualifying times and compete in at least three invitational meets. Some meets are one day (Saturday) meets; some are two-day (Saturday and Sunday) meets, but there is no requirement to attend both days. Duals are mid-week, evening meets. The meets are a fun picnic environment with good, clean competition. Swimmers are encouraged to attend all the meets they want to, but they do not have to attend any. Kids find competing just makes it more fun. Swimmers compete in heats, by age and ability.
