Team Champs: This year Division Three Team Champs is April 29-May 1 in Markham. Last year this meet was held in December, we placed 5th overall just missing the top three. If we place in the top three we move up to Division Two next season. It is our goal to place within the top three this year and move back into Division Two. With this goal in mind we will be choosing the fastest swimmers in each age group to represent our club. We are allowed to field a team of 30 swimmers this year. Coaches will be discussing Team Champs with the swimmers, and reminding them that not all swimmers will be selected. Coaches have been monitoring swimmers performances at practice and meets since the fall and will continue to do so. A lot of our decision is based on the following three points:
Team Champs Selection Criteria
–individual meet results (we look at what the top 10 placings were from the year before in each age group and compare with our swimmers times)
– fastest relay teams per age group (relays score double points).
-This year we will have a 10 &under girls relay, 11/12 boys and girls, 13/14 girls and boys, 15 & over girls and boys…that gives us 28 swimmers which leaves only two more spots.
We will continue to review all of the above mentioned criteria on a weekly basis and will post the Team Champs roster on the Cats website before March Break. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Once the list is posted we will be looking for parent chaperones.
