Championships are this year at Wyoming Recreation Pool.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU SIGN UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AS THEY WILL NOT ACCEPT DECK ENTRIES THE DAY OF THE MEET.
There are three sessions to championships.
I. Monday morning July 16 (Meet start time of 9:00am) the 10 and unders will compete with 8 and under free relays
II. Monday afternoon July 16 (Meet start time of 4:30pm) the 11 and overs will compete
III. Tuesday afternoon July 17 (Meet start of 1:30pm) all finals will compete with relays.
So what are prelim/finals? All athletes can compete in prelims. These events will be circle seeded which means that the top swimmers will be dispersed evenly in the last three heats of each event otherwise the heats will be organized slowest to fastest. This will make the athletes swim faster since they are seeded in faster heats. The fastest 12 swimmers will compete in finals the next day. They will take 2 alternates for each event. All relays except for the 8 and under free relays will compete during finals.
During our dual meets we swim what is called "timed finals" this is a one chance swim. Prelim/finals will give those who qualify for finals a second opportunity to swim the event, making faster times.
We will have a Blue Fins tent set up in the team area. We all have to pay an admission fee of $2.00 per person.
As a team we are responsible for the clerk of course on Monday Morning. We will be responsible for getting ALL the 10 and unders to the blocks. On the map you will see our area. We will be located to the left of the pool in the splash area. Because of that we are going to have only a few people going back and forth to the tent in the team area. We will NOT have "age group helpers" for each age group like we do at a dual meet. Please sign up for the clerk of course and we will figure out logistics when we are at the meet.
As a team we are also responsible for supplying a few timers. The timing sessions are broken into 2 shifts so you are not out in the sun for very long. We will bring our own watches so find one of the coaches to get a stopwatch.
Attached you will find the meet packet. Full of fun information. In the packet they have a map of the pool, parking locations and team tent location. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.
