B Meet Championships Entries

Championship B Meet is this week at Hudsonville.

Don’t forget to check the updated times below!

Some notes about the Championship B Meet

  1. The competition is going to be tough
  2. The officials are more strict about proper stroke.
  3. 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).
  4. Each team can only have 1 relay per age bracket – so a few athletes will compete in a third event on the relays.
  5. There is no admission fee.
  6. Please remind your swimmer that the Warm Down pool is for warming down, this is not open swim time.  Don’t get worn out before the big event.

More Meet Information

  • Because they include so many teams, the conference meets are run differently than regular dual meets.  We will be competing with many 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.
  • Generally, the Championship Meet signals the end of practices for your athlete.
