Championship B Meet Entries

Congratulations!  You made it!

Some notes about the Championship B Meet

  1. It’s going to be longer and more crowded than our dual meets.
  2. The competition is going to be tough – 10 teams will be competing.
  3. The officials are more strict about proper stroke.
  4. Athletes can participate in only 2 individual events.  And they can only compete in an event they have already competed in during this season (a seed time).
  5. Each team can only have 1 relay per age bracket – so a few athletes will compete in a third event on the relays.
  6. There is no admission fee.
  7. Heat sheets will be $3.
  8. There will be print on demand for Championship T-Shirts (Pro tip: order early.)
  9. Typically, the Championship Meet concludes your swimmer’s season.

More Meet Information

  • Because they include so many teams, the conference meets are run differently than regular dual meets.  We will be competing with 8 other teams in our half of the West Michigan Swim League.  This also means they run a little longer – so be prepared.
  • At the B meet, there is no medley relay, only a freestyle relay.  Swimmers are allowed to swim 1 relay and 2 individual events.  However, each team may only enter 1 relay, so only 4 swimmers in each age/gender group will swim in a relay.
  • Everyone will be entered in their 2 individual events.
  • Swimmers may only swim events for which they have a seed time.
  • Because there are several officials at conference meets, disqualifications will be called on the technical aspects of each stroke, i.e., illegal kicks (common in breaststroke and butterfly).  Therefore, most swimmers will be entered in freestyle and backstroke events.
  • Last year NCST won the B meet, so we are looking forward to repeating!
  • Generally, the Championship Meet signals the end of practices for your athlete – watch for End of Season Party information – scheduled for 2/15.

1/27 Home Meet Results

Great job everyone!  Thanks to all the volunteers, concessions workers and donaters, and athletes.  That was a super fast meet and everyone did a great job.  It doesn’t run that smoothly without you – the community – helping out.  It’s truly appreciated.

The athletes did great last night.  Some swimmers had really fast times last night, showing all the hard work has paid off in their time improvements.  There are nearly 150 time improvement ribbons to be made this weekend – that’s awesome!
