2016 YMCA Long Course National Time...

2016 YMCA Long Course National Championship Qualifying Times 

Updated 5/1/2016.  This update includes a 800/1500 bonus event. 

Link: Updated Qualifying Times

If a swimmer has a qualifying time in the 800 free, the swimmer can qualify for the 1500 free with a secondary qualifying time which is 3% slower.  In addition, if a swimmer has a qualifying time in the 1500, the swimmer can qualify for the 800 free with a secondary qualifying time that is 3% slower. 

This change was recommended by the Coaches Association and has been adopted by the Meet Committee for this year only.  There is no commitment at this time by the meet committee to continue this bonus opportunity in the future.  It will be evaluated for continuation in 2017 after the 2016 Long Course Championship

Investing in Swimming

Below is an conversation between a swim parent and non-swim parent.

One of my friends asked "Why do you pay so much money for your kids to Swim?"

Well I have a confession to make, I don't pay for my kids Swim. Personally, I couldn't care less about the pool.

So, if I am not paying for Swimming what am I paying for?
I pay for those moments when my kids become so tired they want to quit but don't.

  • I pay for those days when my kids come home from school and are "too tired" to go the pool but go anyway.
  • I pay for my kids to learn to be disciplined.
  • I pay for my kids to learn to take care of their body.
  • I pay for my kids to learn to work with others and to be good team mates.
  • I pay for my kids to learn to deal with disappointment, when they don't get that place or PB they'd hoped for, but still have to work hard.
  • I pay for my kids to learn to make and accomplish goals.
  • I pay for my kids to learn that it takes hours and hours and hours and hours of hard work and practice to create a champion, and that success does not happen overnight.
  • I pay for the opportunity my kids have and will have to make life-long friendships.
  • I pay so that my kids can be in the pool instead of in front of a screen...

...I could go on but, to be short, I don't pay for swimming I pay for the opportunities that it provides my kids with to develop attributes that will serve them well throughout their lives and give them the opportunity to bless the lives of others. From what I have seen so far I think it is a great investment!
