    While we do process the data from Pacific Swimming, I am uncertain whether the results of meets hosted outside the USA will be published on the LSC website. Nevertheless, we can manually enter her records into our database. Please send the detailed information to contact@swimstandards.com.

    Location: Freedom Aquatic & Fitness Center, 9100 Freedom Center Blvd., Manassas, VA 20110

    Date: July 20-23, 2023

    Updates: Updated timelines with 9 swimmers in final's heats Updated psych sheet with changes up to date

    We look forward to welcoming you to the Freedom Center this weekend for the 13 & over champs. The meet looks to be a great size and timelines are mostly good except Saturday is lengthy with the distance events. There are a few adjustments to the warm-up/ start times that we made to accommodate the meet:

    Thursday 15 & over prelims will start 30 min later than scheduled Saturday timed finals will shorten the warm-up by 10 min and start the meet 15 minutes earlier than scheduled Sunday 15 & over prelims will start 30 minutes earlier than scheduled All finals sessions will start warm-ups at 4:00pm with competition at 5:00pm Schedule: Schedule Warm Up Events Start Thursday, July 20 13-14 Prelims 6:30-7:30 am 7:40 am 15 & Over Prelims 11:30 am-12:50 pm 1:00 pm Finals 4:00-4:50 pm 5:00 pm Friday, July 21 13-14 Prelims 6:30-7:30 am 7:40 am 15 & Over Prelims 11:00 am-12:20 pm 12:30 pm Finals 4:00-4:50 pm 5:00 pm Sunday, July 23 13-14 Prelims 6:30-7:30 am 7:40 am 15 & Over Prelims 10:30 am-11:50 pm 12:00 pm Finals 4:00-4:50 pm 5:00 pm Saturday Timed Finals 2:00-2:40 pm 2:45 pm

    Note: Finals will include the top 27 swimmers in 9 x 3 heats C-B-A. Swimmers in finals will report behind the blocks, and names will be announced for the A final prior to the heat, while the other heats will be announced during the races.

    Check-in:

    All events will require positive check-in.

    Thursday, Friday & Sunday:

    The first four events (not including relays) will close the check-in process 40 minutes prior to the start of the session. All other events will close at the start of the meet.

    Saturday:

    The 400 IM will close at 2:30pm, and the 1500 free will close at 3:45pm. (Note: these will also be available for check-in on Friday) Pool Entrance & Other Facility Notes:

    Please do not enter the facility through the main entrance of the building. Swimmers, coaches, volunteers, and spectators are to enter and exit through the patio that leads directly onto the pool deck.

    Parking is readily available; however, expect a little walk as the closest parking spots are reserved for patrons of the facility.

    Concessions:

    We have two food trucks that will be providing meals at the following schedule for families in the parking lot:

    BBQ Truck:

    Friday: 12pm-5:30pm Saturday: 2:00-6:00pm Sunday: 12:00-5:30pm

    District Small Bites:

    Thursday: 11am-8pm Friday: 11am-2pm Saturday: 2pm-6pm

    Note: Sorry, no breakfast/coffee vendor yet.

    Seating:

    As many of you learned at Claude Moore last weekend and to some extent Jeff Rouse, air quality can be an issue at these bigger meets with the number of bodies coming in and adding to the water sanitation can cause chloramines. We are working with the facility to do everything they can to pump fresh, conditioned air in, but to help your athletes to have the best possible environment for the athletes, coaches, volunteers, and officials. There is a large outdoor area available for teams/families to set up tents if they choose to. It may be warm outside, but the air should be decent (as long as Canada isn't burning).

    With less than 400 swimmers in any session, there will be plenty of seating in the stands for teams. To keep some organization and fend off any fighting for space, I will assign the seating areas, but you're also welcome to use outdoor space how you would like. No parents unless designated as group chaperones, marshals, or coaches will be permitted in the seating area. Parents will be permitted to sit in the deck bleachers only (please no swimmers in these). Coaches, you're welcome to bring a chair; there are some benches available.

    Livestream:

    We will provide a live stream of the swim meet along with an archive of the meet at the conclusion of the meet. Visit YouTube to watch.

    Meet Programs:

    We will post regularly on meet mobile and provide meet programs available through there. With all events being positive check-in on deck, we will not be selling programs but will provide coaches and meet personnel with printed copies as soon as they are available. Finals session seeding will be posted on MM and on PVS website as soon as things are finalized.

    Hospitality:

    We will provide three meals per day on Thursday, Friday & Sunday. Saturday will be a dinner provided mainly focused on the officials and coaches that are there for 6+ hours. Please let our hospitality team know if there is anything you need to help you get through the long weekend.

    Some additional notes regarding the recognized group events by USA Swimming:

    The 25 event is specifically for short courses and is limited to participants who are 8 years old and under. The 100 IM event is exclusive to short courses and is not an approved event for participants who are 13 years old and above. USA Swimming has one group specifically for swimmers who are 10 years old and under. While some clubs consider 8 years old and under as the Mini Group and 9-10 as the upper group. At SwimStandards, we categorize them as follows: 8 & Under (Mini), 9-10 (Midi), 11-12 (Juni), and 13 & Over (Maxi).
