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.

Saturday, January 8 and Sunday, January 9, 2022

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:  $100/ athlete.  This includes a team sweatshirt, a team silcone cap, entry fees and coaching for the athletes.  The fee is charged to the family once the athletes have been selected.
