Competition is not mandatory, however, it is strongly encouraged. Meet schedules are designed by training group level and are designed carefully with short term and long term goals kept in clear focus. Our goal is to have each swimmer compete at intervals which will allow them to be successful, to allow enough time between meets so that an improvement in skill and training (and thus performance) can be realized.
Typically, Splash Club sponsors three (3) to five (5) major swim meets each year, one the first weekend of December, one in the middle of January and one in early June. These are significant undertakings and all Splash Club members are asked to volunteer their time to make these events successful.
