Ribbons and Awards

Ribbons

Home Meets

At regular dual meets at OPP, place ribbons are awarded in each heat, with the exception of relays. No place ribbons are awarded for relay events, Time Trials, or at the Intrasquad meet. No additional ribbons or special awards are given for top finishers in each event. 

Away Meets

Different pools = different rules. Host pools follow their own guidelines for awarding ribbons, so swimmers may not receive ribbons for every heat or event.

Invitational Meets

At invitational meets (such as Bottoms Up and Meadow Mini Meet), only the heat winners receive a heat winner ribbon, and only the top finishers in each event receive ribbons and/or awards; however, all participating swimmers receive a participant ribbon.

Awards

Best Time Ribbons/Award

Best Time Ribbons are awarded each time a swimmer achieves an improvement over their previous best time in an event.   Save these black ribbons -- each best time is a real achievement!  Best Time Awards are given to those in the 7-14yo age groups who receive 10 or more best times during the season. Swimmers in the 6-and-Under age group receive a Best Time Award with 7 or more best times.
