Session (2) ages 10 & under (meet begins around 2 PM)

(1) There will be swim judges at Regionals and State
(2) Only Top 8 in each event will get awards
(3) Top 4 or 5 swimmers in each event qualify for state (Age 14 and under)
FASST is real big on putting relays together for regionals to make it to state. 70% of our kids make it to state on a relay. We do not allow any of our top swimmers to skip out on at least being on (1) relay. So are you willing to travel 8 hours for a relay, we do not put kids on relays who are not going to state. So keep in mind, we can’t change relay swimmers, if you say you are going to state, and then decide not to after regionals, then (3) other kids are going to be VERY disappointed. More information will come out on this soon. But see below for a little of our thinking, it is also on the form
Ages 5-6, only 3 events (25 back, 25 free and 100 free relay).
Ages 7-8, only 3 events (usually 2 relays and 1 individual).
Ages 9-10 can do 4 total events (usually 2 individual and 2 relays).
Ages 11-14 can do 6 events (4 individual and 2 relays). for most kids, 4 individual is to many, to rest time
Ages 15-17 can do 4 events (all swim at least 1 relay), plus some will do the mixed relays
Age 18 and older can do unlimited events.
Fees: $7.00 per event, for regionals and state – do not send money yet
Contact Coach Trent for any questions.
