Meet Overview

How are the meets structured?

A. The North East Championship Meets are formatted, seeded and swam according to the standard USA Swimming guidelines for age groups, i.e., 8 and under (relays only), 6&U (Freestyle and Backstroke events only), 7 and 8, 9 and 10, 11 and 12, 13 and 14, and 15 through 18. 

B. Girls always swim events first in the age group category.

C. Swimmers who have reached their 19th birthday by June 1st of the season may not compete in the AASSL North East Championships.

D. The meets will be scored and awarded to eight (8) places. 

  1. Individual events will be scored as single age groups, i. e., 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18.
  2. Relays will be scored and awarded in traditional age groups. Relays age groups consist of the following age groups: 8 and under, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-18. 
  3. Swimmers may compete in 4 events total: 2 individual and 2 relays. There are two types of relays: Medley Relay consists of 4 swimmers each swimming a different stroke in a set order, and Freestyle Relay consist of 4 swimmers, each swimming freestyle.  Participants for the relays are selected based on their times (the four fastest being on the “A”, the next 4 fastest on the “B”, etc). There are occasional exceptions to this rule based on the Coaches discretion. The coach’s decision is final.

It is critical that parents communicate with the staff in the event they cannot attend the meet ASAP. Swimmers who consistently fail to comply with team regulations will not be placed on relays.

The following is the order of individual and relay events for dual meets:
