We are going into our 2024 season.
Understanding Ages - Since we are in the 2024 season you would take the year 2024 and subtract the year your child was born. So if you were born in 2012 then you would take 2024-2012 and you would be 12 for the next season. If you were born in 2011 then you would be 13 for the season even if you were born in December of 2024. If you were born in 2009 then you would be 15. With that said there is important information regarding competitions:
There are various levels and competitions. In the first part of the season we have the figure meet, intermediate meets, novice meets. We also have National championships. In the 2nd part of the season around April we have intermediate meets, novice meets, age group meets such as associations, Regionals and JO Nationals. This is very important to know.
So for the first part of the season we have enough swimmers to have 2 13-15 teams. In the 2nd part of the season we will have enough swimmers for 2 -12 & Under teams.
For the first part of the season Karen and Carmina will do a duet and Carmina will do a solo as they will be 16-17 next season. They will swim in the Junior Category for the first part of the season.
