B Meets

B meets are for fun and for the development of swimmers. B meets are where swimmers get the opportunity to swim the strokes they want and to try new things. B meets also provide an opportunity for every swimmer on the team to compete on a regular basis. The emphasis is not placed on winning the meet but to give these swimmers a chance to achieve success at their level. There is generally no disqualification in "B" meets; however, if a swimmer is doing the wrong stroke or not doing a stroke correctly, they may be informed of the error for future reference.

Eligibility

  1. No swimmer who has met the Tri-county qualifying time in an event may swim that event in a "B" meet including on a relay
  2. If a swimmer scores 5 or more points in a Tri-County "A" meet in an event, he or she may not swim that event in a "B" meet.
  3. A swimmer may not qualify for the Tri-County in a "B" meet. They must qualify in one of the scheduled "A" meets
