Which swim meets should I attend? Which events should I swim?

(Some notes from the coach…)

Swim meets are fun events that serve as motivators and rewards for hard work. Participating in meets encourages swimmers to set goals, monitor their progress, learn good sportsmanship, and strive for their personal best! Swim meets are also a great time to build friendships and team camaraderie. That said, swim meets require a commitment of time, money, and effort. I hope you can attend several meets throughout the short course season, but it’s a family decision. Here are my recommendations:

Sharks and Bronze Swimmers: Experienced, confident Bronze swimmers who naturally enjoy swim meets are encouraged to try at least USA Meets. For USA meets, you should sign up for the events that are within your skill and stamina level. Ask your coach for recommendations. All meet entries are reviewed before finalizing them, and coaches will contact you as needed to make any adjustments to your swimmer’s entries.

Silver I Swimmers:  It is recommended that you compete in USA meets. For USA meets, you should sign up for the events that are within your skill and stamina level. Ask your coach for recommendations. All meet entries are reviewed before finalizing them, and coaches will contact you as needed to make any adjustments to your swimmer’s entries.

Silver II Swimmers: It is recommended that you compete in USA meets monthly, and Championship meets that you qualify for. You should sign up for the maximum number events allowed each day, giving yourself the opportunity to compete and improve in all the different strokes and distances. Ask your coach for recommendations. All meet entries are reviewed before finalizing them, and coaches will contact you as needed to make any adjustments to your swimmer’s entries.

Gold & Senior Swimmers: You are expected to compete in USA meets monthly, and Championship meets that you qualify for.  Except for tapered and/or championship meets, you should sign up for the maximum number events allowed each day, giving yourself the opportunity to compete and improve in all the different strokes and distances. At important/championship meets, you may choose to do less than the maximum number in order to focus on your strongest events.  Ask your coach for recommendations. I review all meet entries before finalizing them, and I will contact you as needed to make any adjustments to your swimmer’s entries.
