Championship Meets

 

 

Each year (September- August) is divided into three seasons: Fall, Winter, Spring/Summer

The coaches focus on having the athletes finish each season with a positive meet experience that they can build on for the next season. This is important for several reasons:

  • It is an extremely motivating way to finish the season which helps to set them up for a good start the next season

  • It validates the effort the kids have put in at practice

  • It validates the efforts the parents put into getting their kids to practice, making sure they are eating right, etc.

  • Some kids may be needed to fill out relays at one of the meets with qualifying standards- this is a big deal both for the athlete and the team.

Each family needs to attend at least one of the season ending meets, and as such should keep those dates open on their calendars.
