Meets

Several people have asked which meet they should attend Flag City in Findlay, Ohio or the Summer Jam in Fishers, Indiana (Indianapolis). The Summer Jam is indoors and will be more comfortable for our younger swimmers (Silver 1, 8 & under).  Our 9-10 swimmers can pick either meet or do both (both meets are timed finals for this age group).  We would like our 11 & overs to swim both meets.  Swimmers will be entered int heir best events at the Summer Jam. At Flag City, they will be entered into events that they do not normally try, or in their best stroke but a different distance.  This will give our swimmers the opportunity to grow their events list and abilities.  This also keeps their best events 'fresh' for the Summer Jam.

Peppe vs. Regionals
The other popular question is which meet to swim -Mike Peppe or Regionals.   Here's the entry guide:

  • If you are swimming Ohio JO's and not Regioanls, enter Peppe if you would like.
  • If you are swimming Regionals but Not Ohio JO's, DO NOT enter Peppe.
  • If you are swimming just a couple of events at JO's you need to CHOOSE which meet you will make your last chance to pick up more JO cuts: Peppe or Regionals.   Do not do both.  That would be 3 major meets (plus summer league meets) in 3 weeks.  By the time JO's rolls around, things get a little tired and ugly.
