What is Time Trials?
Time Trials is the first official swim meet of the season, although we are not swimming against another team. The purpose is to have swimmers swim competitively within their age groups, trying to swim their best possible time in each stroke, or in all the strokes that they know at that time. The times posted are used by the coaches as an initial assessment and a starting point from which the swimmer can work to improve during the summer. The initial times are entered in our statistical data base.
Time Trials is also training time for parents of new swimmers. Parents are needed in the following functions during the course of Time Trials: Set-up, timer, official, runner, computer operator helpers, announcer, concessions, and “take down” after the meet. Parents will be instructed on the “how to’s” before Time Trials begins, and then will be paired with an experienced parent during events to learn firsthand what is required in each function
