Event List The UPDATED 2023* event list for SWSC is set and attached below. If a team would like to add additional events, they can be added after the last relay. These additional events are not scored and do not meet the Finals requirements for events swam at a SWSC meets. An example of additional events would be the longer events swam at Junior Olympics.
6 & U Swimmers 6 & U events are not scored, are not judged, and are strictly "exhibition". They count towards a swimmer's 6 "splashes" required to be eligible for conference finals.
However, in order to swim at conference finals, all 6 & U swimmers must have a legal time which can only be obtained by swimming the 8 & U events which are judged for proper stroke technique.
In 6 & U events, swimmers will receive participant ribbons.
If a 6 & U swimmer is not able to swim without help, they are probably not ready to participate in the meet and should continue to practice until such a time that they can attempt to swim the length of the pool unassisted. The lane ropes are always there, should they need to grab on to them.
Event Limits *Conference Minimum 3 Individual & 2 Relays Additionally, each host team can decide how many individual events, each swimmer is allowed to swim at their meet beyond the conference minimum. Example, some teams choose to allow 5 individual events plus 2 relays, 4 individual events plus 2 relays, 3 individual events plus 2 relays. At larger meets, smaller facilities, or locations that must vacate the pool by a specific time, they may choose to do less individual events.
