The CIF State Swimming & Diving Championships will take place from May 9-11 at the Clovis Olympic Swim Complex at Clovis West High School in Fresno. Swimmers will qualify to compete at the meet by virtue of their performances at their respective Section Meets, based on the qualifying criteria below:

At-Large Entries

Swimming: Once allocated automatic qualifying spots from each section are filled, sections may enter additional competitors provided they have met or bettered the “At-Large” Automatic or Consideration standard for their event in their Section Meet that qualifies athletes for the CIF State Swimming & Diving Championships. In the event that there are not 40 automatic qualifiers, consideration times will be used to fill each event to 40 qualifiers/relay teams. “At-Large” qualifying times must be achieved in Finals of the Section Championships. All times must be recorded on “Fully Automatic Timing” systems (FAT). No hand times will be accepted.

Diving: No At Large Qualifiers. Each section will get one additional entry for diving.

San Joaquin section is at the Elk Grove Aquatics Complex. Bummer that the meet is during the day Wed-Fri. Historically it was Thu-Sat…parents could watch their swimmers on Sat without taking off work.

Spring High School is a LC killer not much time to keep up with the rest of the country.

An additional training cycle and a big meet to update SCY results. Th chemistry of the high school meet is different from club meets, so students do really well 😀
