CLASH OF THE DOLPHIN
     

 

- FORT HOOD DOLPHINS THIRD ANNUAL -

CLASH OF THE DOLPHINS

During the month of August, we will be running a progressive meet. We have divided the team in half to create two teams: the Red team and the Blue team (scroll to the bottom of the page to see your team!) During the week we will swim one event on any given day - we have rotated the days of the week in which we will compete to accommodate as many of our families' schedules as possible.  Each swimmer in attendance at practice will compete in that day's event and record a time. There will not be "make-up" swims for days that swimmers miss or "substitute" events. The coaches will compile the times, rank them from fastest to slowest and then score that event as it would be scored in a regular meet. At the end of the month, the scores will be combined and a winning team will be announced! Developmental swimmers will be scored separately from the Bronze, Silver, Gold groups. Points can be earned during dryland competitions, but will be deducted for swimmers who are late. If your swimmer is not in attendance for practice on days that we are racing an event, they cannot help their team earn points!  So it is very important that swimmers are at practice! Please let the coaches know ASAP if your swimmer will be gone for the ENTIRE month of August so we can create even teams.

Developmental swimmers will be scored separately through sixth place on the following points scale: 10, 8, 7, 5, 4, 2

Bonus points and deductions
5 points will be subtracted for every team member that is late getting into the water after dryland is over. Coaches will allot a certain amount of time for swimmers to transition from dryland into the pool- any swimmers left on deck after this time is over will be penalized. 

- Secret Bonus Swims - Days where swimmers will be competing in 50/100 distances of each stroke, coaches will select one swimmer from each team to compete in a 200 of that stroke. These swimmers will be selected from the Silver or Gold groups. The swimmer that wins will be awarded 15 bonus points, the second place swimmer will be awarded 10 bonus points.
