Championship Meet Info A/B Meet

Hello All,

Some of you may be wondering, what is an"A" or "B" Meet? And, which one did my swimmer qualify to swim at?

The "A" and "B" meets are the Championship Meets for the West Michigan Swim League. If your swimmer achieved an"A" qualifying time at one of the swim meets during the season, they will swim at the "A" Meet. If your swimmer did not achieve an "A" qualifying time at one of the swim meets during the season, they will swim at the "B" Meet. Also, if your swimmer is over 13 years of age, and swam at a meet this summer, they automatically qualify for the "A" meet.

Qualifying times can be found here(WMSL time standards)

The "A" meet is broken down into two separate meets, the 12 & Under "A" Meet, and the 13 & Over "A" Meet. The "B" meet is just one meet.

This is a free event, everyone who participated in at least one meet this summer qualifies to swim at a Championship Meet.

*Please fill out the meet absence form  here, by Thursday July 12th at Midnight,  if you are unable to attend the Championship Meet.
**Quad Meet #3 swim times will count towards qualifying for the "A" Meet.
