Champs Information

Every year our summer season wraps up with a big end-of-season Champs meet where all seven teams come together in one meet. While the qualifications are easy to meet, they are specific. Most of our swimmers do qualify, but please read through the eligibility requirements below to be sure. Reach out to the Head Coach if you have any questions.

END-OF-SEASON CHAMPS MEET ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible to enter the end-of-season Champs meet, a swimmer must meet all the following requirements: 

  1. A swimmer must have a current season meet time in each of his entered events. There shall be no “NT” (no time) allowed in the end-of-season Champs meet(s) entries. 
  2. To be entered into a Champs 25m event all swimmers, regardless of age, must be under the time standard of 1:00 for meters or: 55 for yards.
  3. Swimmers must have at least one legal time in an individual event to be eligible to swim that event in a Championship Meet.
  4. Swimmers seven and older must swim:
    • At least two season meets 
    • At least two individual events of any stroke in each of those meets
  • Swimmers six and under must swim:
    • At least two season meets
    • At least one individual event of any stroke in each these meets
  • A DQ, in any event, will count toward this requirement.  For example, if a seven-year old swimmer swims breaststroke in two meets and achieves one legal time and one DQ, then she/he is eligible to swim breaststroke in the Championship Meet.
  • Neither Intra-squad meets (e.g. Mock Meet), nor “Time Trials”  fulfill this requirement.
  • NOTE: For swimmers entered in a meet canceled after the halfway point, the meet, including events not swum will count toward fulfilling eligibility requirement toward end-of-season Champs Meet.  Meets canceled prior to the halfway point do not count for Champs eligibility.  
    • For 2019, the Avery Ranch meet was canceled prior to the halfway point.  Therefore, entries and times at this meet will not count toward Champs meet eligibility.


EXEMPTIONS —The league will consider swimmer exemptions to Championship qualifications ONLY in extenuating circumstances. The Championship Meet Qualifications Exemption Form must be completed and submitted to Team League Representatives no later than one week prior to the Champs Meet. The Exemption must be approved by a 2/3 vote of the League members.

SUMMER SWIM TEAM UPDATE!


Hello parents,

I regret to inform you that we will not have a Twisters swim team this summer. The league met last week and collectively decided we could not move forward. We believe this is in the best interest of the health and safety of our families. Even if government authorities were to allow gatherings like swim meets this summer, which remains uncertain, there are other problems resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. A few teams in our league have lost sponsorship funding and likely will not have anywhere to practice. Accordingly, the league teams unanimously voted to cancel the season. This makes me very sad, as I was truly looking forward to a great season.

Fortunately, we have not yet charged any accounts for swim team dues, so we do not have any refunds to manage. We will not hold a registration, swim suit try-ons, or any practices this summer. Sadly, we will have to wait for the 2021 season.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me.

Sincerely,

Kelley Galant

Board President
