What is B-Finals? B-Finals is a league-wide championship meet whose goal is to give every swimmer the chance for a big-meet championship experience. It does not affect the team’s placement in the league, though relative positions win trophies for the team and ribbons for the swimmers.
What's the difference between B-Finals and A-Finals? While A-Finals allows only two swimmers for each event per team, B-Finals welcomes all swimmers not swimming in A-Finals with no limit to entries per team. It is an opportunity for those swimmers who may not win blue ribbons to have a great time and succeed at a big meet.
Who goes to B-Finals? Any swimmer not selected to attend A-Finals can go to B-Finals so that every swimmer can participate in a championship meet.
What happens at B-Finals? B-Finals is a 1 day event. There are two sessions divided by age. Admission is charged by the host team. Parking is provided away from the pool area and shuttles move people back and forth. However, there is a drop off area for swimmers.
How many events can a swimmer swim at B-Finals? Each swimmer can participate in two individual events. There are no relays at B-Finals.
What does the team do during B-Finals? Each team is given a small space on the club grounds for a tent and to keep bags, towels, etc. It can get busy and chaotic so we ask the team to try and stay together, cheer for their teammates, and enjoy the day! Bring sunblock!
What is A-Finals? A-Finals is a scored, league-wide swim meet. Our score determines our position in the league and therefore which teams we will swim against next season. Each team wants to have the fastest swimmers present at A-Finals in order to place as high as possible.
Who goes to A-Finals? For each club, the fastest 2 swimmers available in each event swim at A-Finals. Our coaches will decide who swims each event.
What happens at A-Finals? A-Finals is a 2 day event, with preliminary races on Saturday and finals on Sunday. This means that all A-Finals swimmers swim on Saturday and the fastest 12 swimmers in each event regardless of club return on Sunday to swim for awards. There are also 2 alternates invited back in case all 12 finalists don’t return for the second day. There is no admission charge for A-Finals.
How many events can a swimmer swim at A-Finals? Swimmers are limited to 2 individual events and one relay, but it is possible that a swimmer may swim only 1 event, possibly only 1 relay, at A-Finals. They may also only come back to swim 1 relay on Sunday.
Can a swimmer go to both A and B Finals? No, if a swimmer is swimming even 1 event at A-Finals they may not attend B-Finals. Very occasionally a swimmer will opt to skip A-Finals in order to swim 2 events at B-Finals, but this decision must be approved by the coaches.
How do I know if a swimmer will be going to A-Finals? Lineups for both meets are due the Monday evening before B-Finals. After our submission, both lineups will be emailed to the team. If vacation or other plans require that you know ahead of time, talk to the coaches so they can give you an estimate for your swimmer. This estimate is not binding until the entry is made.
What does the team do during A-Finals? We have a tent somewhere around the pool deck so that the swimmers and their families have a shady place to watch the meet. There is a concession stand provided by the host club. Once there, the team hangs together, cheers for each other and has a GREAT time.
On the Sunday of A-Finals, there is a parade of teams before the start of the meet. We encourage ALL swimmers to attend this fun event, even if they do not swim in A-Finals or do not make the final day. Everyone gets dressed up, cheers and shows just how much spirit our team has!
