Swim Meet Information
Heather Crampton sends out meet invitations for each meet 2-4 weeks before that meet to the parents. These 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. All swimmers must swim three meets, of which, one 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. Your $110 registration fee covers this cost.
Each host team charges $8-10 per swimmer per event. Championship meets cost more. These fees will be charged to your meet fee account. When you sign up for a meet please pre-pay. Estimate meet fees at $30-$40 per day per swimmer, Tsunami swimming must pay these fees to the host team before the meet deadline, if you sign up for the meet and don’t attend you still have to pay for those events. You will receive an account statement periodically which will show actual charges, payments, and credit or balance due for team fees, meet fees, scrip fees etc. Swim & Stay Fit swimmers can also attend meets with our team, but their meet fees are doubled for each competition.
