The 2016 SI Swimming All-Star Team will be competing in the annual All-Star Meet, which this year will be a dual meet against the Sierra Nevada All-Star Team on January 16-17 right here in San Diego!  Our All-Star team will be selected at the the upcoming Winter Age Group Championship meet in December from the eligible SI swimmers with the best performances at the meet. The key word here is “eligible” – and to be eligible for selection, each interested swimmer must submit an All-Star Team Application prior to the completion of the Sunday preliminary events at the Winter Age Group Championships on Dec 20, 2015.  The team will consist of up to 24 girls and 24 boys – 8 each in the 10 & Under, 11-12, and 13-14 age groups.

Selection Criteria: Based on the performance of the swimmers’ best six finishes at the Winter Age Group Championships in events that are to be swum at the All Star Meet (designated in WAGs format with a star), the following criteria will be used:

  1. Two first place finishes among SI swimmers in an event – automatic qualification.
  2. Single first place finishers fill the remaining slots (max of 8), with next highest place finish being used (if necessary) as a tie breaker.
  3. If still less than 8 have qualified, scores will be awarded in swimmers’ best six qualifying races and the lowest scores will fill the remaining spots on the roster. IMX scoring will be used. Scores will be given to non-participants in the meet who competed in another SI swim meet in December.
  4. Note: Coaching staff reserves the right to select team in the event of circumstances beyond those described above.
