Swim Meet Information

Meet announcements are posted on the team's Commit Suite.  The meet announcements have information on who qualifies to attend, location, times, dates, directions and other specifics. Swimmers and their parents choose which meets, they will attend. The coaches can guide you in these decisions, and will recommend meets that would be best for your swimmer.  You must mark your swimmer as attending by the specified team deadline to ensure the coaching staff is able to enter the swimmers in the meet.  All swimmers must swim three meets, one of which must be a Championship meet.

Swimmers are encouraged to swim a wide variety of events at meets. This is one of the great things about age group swimming. If your swimmer swims in summer league, high school and maybe college, they will probably have a "best" stroke or event, and will swim just that stroke or event all of the time. Age group swimmers are encourage to learn how to swim all of the strokes and events. Many swimmers find that the stroke they hate when they are 8 becomes their favorite at age 12.

USA Swimming Registration
All swimmers who wish to compete at meets must be registered with VA Swimming and USA Swimming.  Important: If you are new to Tsunami, you must register with USA Swimming AFTER September 1st for your regsitration to be valid for the full short course season. USA Swimming registrations done in August are only valid through the end of the calendar year.

Meet Fees
The TSU team charges a $5 per swimmer, per meet surcharge.  Each host team charges $9-15 per swimmer per event (cost per event will vary depending on meet host), plus a meet entry fee. Championship meets often cost more. These fees will be charged to your account. Tsunami covers relay entry costs to encourage participation. Tsunami Swimming must pay the entire team's meet fee balance to the host team before the meet occurs. If you sign up for a meet and don’t attend you still have to pay for those events. All meet fees should be paid within 10 days of the conclusion of the meet.  You will receive an account invoice which will show actual charges, payments, and credit or balance due for team fees, meet fees, fundraising fees etc. Swim & Stay Fit swimmers can also attend meets with our team, but their meet fees are doubled for each competition and USA Swimming registration is required. Talk to the coaching staff if you're interested in participating in a meet.
