San Diego-Imperial Swimming has released the estimated meet timeline, warm-up assignments, team job, and lane timing assignments for this weekend’s upcoming Winter Age Group Championship meet.  From the Meet Director:

  • This meet is going to be huge!  We have well over 900 swimmers entered in this year’s meet, and expect the pool deck to be quite hectic at times.  Teams are encouraged to car pool to Coronado as parking around the BBMAC will be at a premium.  Allow plenty of extra time to arrive at the facility, warmup, and for swimmers to get to the blocks in time to make their heats.  

From the BBMAC Aquatics Director:

  • The BBMAC complex will open by 6:15 am each morning.  An outside swim team will be practicing in the pool until 7:00am – please be courteous until they finish.
  • Other swim and water polo teams have practice on Friday evening.  Team canopies may be dropped off (or setup in the CHS quad) after 6 pm on Friday.
  • Once again, no team or personal canopies will be allowed on the pool deck (inside the pool fences).  Team canopies and tarps will only be allowed in the CHS quad areas.  Coaches will be allowed to set up canopies over the coaching tables and chairs on both sides of the main pool.  Do not setup canopies where they will block travel paths to exits, gates, or restrooms.
  • No propane heaters are allowed on campus.
  • Please do not bring pets to the meet.  Service animals are allowed.
  • Additional parking will be available at Village Elementary on Saturday and Monday.

Programs will not be sold this year or printed for coaches.  The meet program, psych sheets and meet timelines are available for free download.  Print them out before you come to the pool!  Information should also be available on Meet Mobile.

Timelines:   These are estimates only and subject to change…
  • SAT AM (Session 1) – Start 8:30 am, Finish 2:30 pm (1000s start at 12:15)
  • SAT AM (Session 2) – Start 10:30 am, Finish 1:30 pm (relays start at 1:00)
  • SAT FINALS (Session 3) – Start time TBA. Run time 2.5 – 3 hours.
  • SUN AM (Session 4) – Start 8:30 am, Finish 2:30 pm (500s start at 12:30)
  • SUN AM (Session 5) – Start 10:30 am, Finish 2:00 pm (relays start at 1:30)

  • MON FINALS (Session 9) – Start time TBA. Run time 2 – 2.5 hours.

The start time for finals will be set by the Meet Referee during the coaches’ meeting on Saturday.  There will be a minimum of a 2 hour break between the end of prelims and the start of finals.  Last year finals started at 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday, and 4 pm on Monday.

After a flurry of entries were received in the past 24 hours, the meet has exceeded its capacity limits and is now closed out.  No additional swimmer entries to the WAGC will be accepted.  Swimmers already entered into the meet may update their entry times or add additional events, up to the entry deadline of December 6.

Preparations for the 2017 Winter Age Group Championships, to be held December 16-18 in Coronado, are well underway.  Medals and bag tags have been ordered, vendors are signing up, and entries continue to arrive on a daily basis.  At this point, we have 325 total entries submitted – remember that this meet will close out if more than 800 total entries are submitted.  We have 190 entries from swimmers outside of our LSC, meaning that we only have 10 spaces left for outside swimmers!

Coaches – it has been pointed out that the original Event File posted on our website contained an error for the cost of the swimmer surcharge – it listed the surcharge at last year’s rate instead of the correct amount ($8) as listed in the meet announcement. The Event File has been corrected as of this AM.
