Types of Meets

Intrasquad

Team Vortex is divided into two teams, swimmers will compete against similar age swimmers. This gives swimmers the chance to compete and parents a chance to practice running an effective meet.

Dual Meet

Team Vortex competes with only one other team. These meets help promote team unity and allow us to build relationships with other area teams.

Pentathlon

When swimmers compete in one event of each stroke plus an Individual Medley (I.M.). Awards are usually based on the lowest combined time-total of all 5 events in the swimmer’s gender and age bracket.

Silver Circuit

These are beginner swim meets! These meets have a maximum time standard to enter the event. Your fastest time must be slower than the time standard. These meets usually offer a low key environment to facilitate new swimmers transition into USA Swimming sanctioned events without long timelines and in a a good starting format.

Districts

The Northern Colorado Conference/League championship meet to crown a league championship club.  All Team Vortex swimmers should attend Northern Colorado District meets, held twice a year.

Silver State and State Championships

At the end of Short Course (winter) and Long Course (summer) season, Silver State and State Championship meets are sanctioned by Colorado Swimming Inc., the governing body of swimming in the state of Colorado. Colorado Swimming Inc. sets the qualifying time standards for these state meets.
 

Zones, Sectionals, Futures, Junior Nationals, Senior Nationals and Olympic Trials

These are championship meets that require qualifying standards to be met.  They are a series of national level stepping stone meets to progress competitively at the highest levels depending upon age and region.  These are the culminating meets for continuing a  swimmers development and should be a part of all swimmers long term goals and aspirations.
