Swimmers attend various swim meets throughout the season for a number of different reasons depending on the squad. For our younger swimmers the meets provide race practice, experience swimming under race conditions, opportunities to achieve personal best times - plus the chance to have lots of fun and help develop Club team spirit.
As swimmers become more experienced they attend meets to achieve qualifying times (QT's) to enable them to swim at higher levels of competition. ie. Country & State Championships, etc.
Each season the Squad Coach will "target" specific swim meets that are suitable for the squad and the goals they wish to achieve. Coaches attend these meets and provide guidance and feedback to swimmers on their performance.
