THE DATE:

January 7-8, 2023

 

THE MEET:

The Mid States Championship meet is an “All-Star” meet for swimmers ages 14 & Under who compete as members of Team  Indiana, Team Kentucky, Team Michigan, Team Minnesota, Team Ohio, or Team Wisconsin.  Unlike the summer Central ZONE Championships where any athlete with a qualifying time can ENTER the meet, participation in Mid States involves a SELECTION process. There is a limit on the number of swimmers each team can enter in an event at Mid States.

QUALIFYING TIMES & QUALIFICATION PERIOD: To be considered for Team Wisconsin selection, the athlete must have swum minimum time standards at a sanctioned or high school competition between September 1, 2021, and the meet entry deadline Monday, December 12, 2022 at 5:00 PM. Minimum time standard is the “A” times of the National Standards Best times prior to September 1, 2021, do not qualify an athlete for Team Wisconsin selection

ELIGIBLE ATHLETES: To be considered for Team Wisconsin selection, the athlete must be a member of USA Swimming and registered as a member of Wisconsin LSC, be a 14 & U (age is as of the first day of the meet) athlete who met the minimum time standards during the qualifying period stated above. Simply Register using the “REGISTER” button on the home screen.

NOTE: Boys currently in their freshman year of high school have been deemed ineligible to compete in this meet by the WIAA.  The words "All Star" in the meet disqualify them from being able to compete, as it's not a meet eligible for everyone.  

SELECTION PROCESS: The Team Wisconsin Mid States coaching staff will review the entry reports of all applicants.  The top 4 individuals will be selected for each individual (with the exception of the 1650); A&B relays will also be selected from the times.  Individuals may swim up to 6 individual events for the weekend. 

COST:  $125/athlete.  This includes a t-shirt, cap, entry fees and coaching for the athletes.  The fee is charged to the family once the athletes have been selected.

Friday

A warmup will take place Friday night at 6:30-7:30P (Eastern); equipment can be picked up.

Please arrive at the pool by 6:15.  Meet the staff in the concourse behind the Team Wisconsin area (that's the east side of the facility, at the turn end of the center pool--its easy if you look at the picture)

While the pool opens to spectators at 8:15A, you don't need to be there when the doors open.  There are more seating opportunities than we'll ever need.

Athletes need to be ready to take the team picture at 9:15A, so that means arriving shortly after 9:00A.
