We are pleased to congratulate our athletes for their accomplishment in the classroom and the pool. Timothy, Eli, Olivia, Grace, Kaitlin, Sophia, Andrei, Nathan were selected to the team for the 2017-2018 season by achieving the following:
Grade completion requirement – applicant must have completed 9th, 10th 11th or 12th grade
GPA Requirement – minimum 3.5 GPA for the current academic year
Honors, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and dual credit college level academic courses will earn one half (.5) extra Grade Point. Grades for academic subjects only are calculated – history/social studies, English, mathematics, sciences, foreign languages, computer sciences, visual and performing arts if indicated as academic. A grade lower than a C in an academic subject will mean automatic rejection of the applicant. Grades for non-academic courses will NOT be calculated – art, band, choir, orchestra, health, driver education, physical education, and any other class marked non-academic on a transcript.
There will be no special status designation for a 4.0 GPA other than for a national champion who also has a 4.0 GPA.
Applicants must have swum an individual pool time equal to a 2017 Winter Junior qualifying time in any individual event during the SAA qualifying period (August 16, 2017 – August 15, 2018) with qualifying times in SWIMS – list of times are posted on the USA Swimming website. A qualifying time will be available for selection from the SWIMS database during the application process. Only ONE time is necessary and only ONE application is necessary.
If you meet these requirements and would like to apply for the 2018-2019 SAA honors please peak with your child’s coach.
