WWAGS Report for 2015-16 Swim Year

As we get ready for Season 4 of WWAGS, we thought we’d look back to see what 2015-16 looked like “by the numbers.” In our first year, from October 2013 through August 2014 we had 508 mentions; during the 2014-15 season that number was 473, and in 2015-16 it was 327.

It was fairly evenly distributed among the age categories, with the strongest representation coming from the 15-16 age groups, which isn’t all that surprising given that big growth spurts during these years tend to lead to big time drops. After all, what we tend to look for when putting together a WWAGS lists is a breakthrough meet.

So here is the breakdown of mentions for the 2015-16 swim season:
