SWIM TIME INFORMATION
Kids Tri! Ballantyne participants (5-14 years) must submit a 50 yard swim time for seeing purposes. Any swim time changes can be made by emailing email@example.com. No changes will be made after Tuesday, July 10th.
Being a pool swim with a staggered start, participants are seeded from fastest to slowest with their age group. Each participant will be assigned a number based on their swim time within their age group. They will then line up according to their race number - #1, 2, 3, etc.
WHAT IS A STAGGERED SWIM START?
A staggered start race is where participants will be depart from the in the water wall start every 15 seconds. The oldest age group (12 – 14 years) will launch first from lane #6 and “snake” around six lane lines, swimming one way in each lane. They continue to swim one-way for all of the six lanes before exiting at the pool steps and heading to the transition area (TA). Age Group 9 - 11 years will line up at lane #4 and complete their four lane “snake” swim before exiting at the pool steps. Age Group 5 - 8 years will launch at lane #2 and complete their two lane “snake” swim before exiting at the pool steps. Race officials and volunteers will line up each swimmer and start them accordingly.
The Preschool division (3 - 5 years) will swim approximately 10 yards in a designated lane next to the wall. Parents are allowed to assist their preschool child in/out of the water. Floaties and kickboards are allowed for preschool kids only. No times are needed to submit for the Preschool Fun Tri!
