The 2nd of our in house Time Trial Meets: specifically focused on our FUNdamentals, SwimActive, and D Group members of our Team:

  • FUNdamentals / SwimActive / D group swimmers are encouraged to participate
  • C group swimmers are encouraged to attend either as a swimmer or as a helper
  • B group / A group swimmers are encouraged to help the next generation; just as they'd received in years past

This is a FREE EVENT for all of our members and it is an UNSANCTIONED competition, meaning this will not affect your Swimmer's Swimming Canada / SwimBC Insurance category.  Questions?  Please contact your swimmer's regular coach firstname @duncanstingrays.com.



For our newest members to become familiar with the Swim Meet process, please review the list below for the typical vocabulary, timelines, and processes for each competition:

    • team's internal deadline is 16feb2024.  Your Swimmer will discuss with their Coach which events they will be swimming.  The family's only responsibility is to confirm / decline attendance.  Please do so online through this Event Page
    • An email will be sent out to all confirmed swimmers and will outline the final details going into the competition.  This email will also contain this report: Entries & Fees Report which outlines the Swimmer's selected events and applicable cost of participating (this unSanctioned competition is free). 
      This email will also contain the final deadline for participation without financial obligation (for future reference when attending greater competitions)
    • After the host deadline, all entries are compiled and listed.  Simply put, this document allows for all to see who is attending and swimmers can review how they are ranked going into the competition
    • In the day(s) leading up to the competition, all entries are finalized and then the competition can be seeded (organized).  The Session Report allows for all attending to see approximately how long the session will take and the approximate times for the start of each event.  THIS IS NOT A TIMELINE: for reference only
    • as each race is completed, the results are collected and posted on HyTek's Meet Mobile (phone app) and will also be posted online - all unofficial.  Following the entire competition, all events' results will be reviewed by the Meet Referee and will be released once the competition is completed.  Results are posted within your family account as well as within the DST Results page  - can be found at top menu bar > Standards / Records / Results > Results > specific competition
