2022 Walnut Creek All City Swim Meet
Saturday & Sunday, June 25th & 26th at Clarke Memorial Swim Center

 

We are getting the band back together this year! It's the 2022 Reunion Tour!

We look forward to welcoming rockstar swimmers and rockstar parents to the 35th Annual Walnut Creek All City Meet. Annually we meet to bring the best of Walnut Creek to battle out for epic swims and fun at Heather Farms. This year we are proud to reunite, bring the teams back together and offer our traditional meet format. We think of this as the world tour of the Walnut Creek swim teams, gathering for one weekend in one location. It's our homage to community and the sport. We hope to offer you, the VIP experience. We offer great parking, plentiful lawn seats, tasty food, drink and treats. Our vendors are back to sell suits and toys. Our swimmers are back to perform. We'll have parent relays and coaches relays and music to get everyone pysched. We're back for the reunion tour and we can't wait to see you on the pool deck prior to the start of the show.   
 
All Out. All Weekend. All City.

WHAT MAKES OUR MEET UNIQUE

Two flights! An A and a B flight in every individual event -- that's what makes the All City Meet unique (that and the fact that the ten competing recreational teams all hail from the City of Walnut Creek). All City brings over 1,800 swimmers and their families together to participate in a community event where each athlete has a chance to contribute to the success of their team.

HOW THE FLIGHTS WORK

The flight of a swimmer for a given event is based on result times. Flight A consists of the swimmers with the faster half of the times. Flight B consists of the remaining swimmers. There are no flights for relay events.

SWIMMER ELIGIBILITY

The Contra Costa County Championships (County Meet) age rules apply. Participating swimmers enter the meet according to their age on June 15, 2022 including 18- year-old swimmers. Swimmers may not be any older than 18 as of June 15, 2022. 

Participating swimmers must be full-time members of a Walnut Creek recreational swim team. The spirit of the All City meet is for recreational swimmers to compete and score points. Therefore exhibition swims and/or year-round swimmers are not allowed, and may jeopardize their team's ability to swim in the County Meet.

Recreational swim teams may not begin training earlier than specified by Walnut Creek Swim Conference. Those swimmers that are not high school and college swimmers may not compete as members of a year-round swim team or train with a year-round swim team after December 31, 2021. These swimmers may not compete in any USA swim meets after December 31, 2021 and until August 1, 2022. High School and college swimmers who are members of their scholastic teams may continue to train with a year-round team until the NCS High School Swim season begins. High School and college swimmers may swim USA meets unattached until March 15th.

Participation in various clinics and lesson programs will not jeopardize eligibility provided the total hours of participation does not exceed 15 hours between December 31, 2021 and the beginning of the recreational season.

Swimmers assisting with the coaching of the participating teams may compete, provided they meet all other eligibility requirements and are bona fide members of the team they represent. Head coaches are not eligible to compete.

ENTRY LIMITS

Each swimmer can participate in up to three individual events and two relays, plus the All Ages Relay (3 separate relay events). Each team will be allowed two relay teams per event. All relays are single gender (no mixed relays). 15/18 swimmers may swim the 50 free in addition to three individual events, two relays and the All Ages Relay.

SWIMMING UP AN AGE GROUP

A swimmer must swim in the Age Group corresponding to his or her age on June 15th, 2022. An exception to this rule allows the swimmer to 'swim up' an age group for individual events and/or relays provided the swimmer swims all events in the higher age group for the entire meet.  

SWIM SUIT REGULATIONS

Swimsuits for men may not extend above the navel or below the knee and for women may not cover the neck or extend past the shoulder or below the knee. No zippers or other fastening devices are allowed except for a waist tie on a brief or jammer. Suits must be of textile material and must not be made of any rubberized type of material such as polyurethane or neoprene. The cut of the suit shall not expose body parts so as to offend good taste.

Tech suit rules for 12&Unders will follow USA swimming guidelines, as per the County Meet. Link to information here.

AWARDS

Each team will be placed in one of two divisions based on the number of athletes it has entered in the meet. The five teams with more athletes will compete in Division I. The five teams with fewer athletes will compete in Division II. Trophiies will be warded to the teams with the top three scores in each division.

SCORING

All events, except the parent/coach relays, will be scored and will be counted in the overall team scoring.
