2022 INVITATIONAL SWIM MEETS

  • Invitational Meets are meets Springwood attends and competes in as a team, by invitation of the host team.

  • Unlike regular dual meets, Invitationals cost money to compete and entries are final once submitted.

  • Invitationals often have their own unique “specifics” (fees, awards, entries) described in the “Meet Sheet” that I receive from the host team. Copies of these “Meet Sheets” can be found in the orange Invite Binder kept in the coach’s office cabinet should you be interested.

  • ALL SWIMMERS on the team roster WILL BE SCHEDULED TO SWIM IN THE CROSSINGS CHALLENGE, WOODLANDS INVITATIONAL, LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIPS & CITY MEET.  Athletes must “sign-out” by the specified date. Note: Often entries are due for these particular meets 2-3 weeks in advance so please pay special attention to the “SIGN-OUT BY…date.”

  • Notice Crossings Challenge & Woodlands fall on the same weekend. All swimmers will be scheduled to participate in one of the two meets based on their individual times.

  • “Sign up” will be required for Bishop Bash (8 & unders), Middle Age Madness (9-14 yr olds) and Devil Mtn Pentathlon because the swimmer pays their own entry fee for this meet. Details will be communicated.

  • Meet details & parent work schedules for invitational meets will be available on the website & posted at the pool as they become available.

  • Invitationals are an excellent opportunity for your swimmer(s) to Swim!!!
