The season ends with an Gaithersburg-Germantown Swim League (GGSL) Invitationals competition. The GGSL hosts an invitational meet at the end of each season and the following are the qualifying requirement for our league GGSL:
Each team may enter a maximum of two (2) swimmers per event, except for the freestyle events for the 8 & Under
and 9-10 age groups, where four (4) swimmers will be permitted
Teams may enter two relay squads in each relay event
The process the North Lake Dolphins use to select the swimmers to attend Invitationals is as follows:
The Head Coach works with every swimmer throughout the season to improve their individual times.
The Parent Rep distributes the current seed times to all members of the team during the week of July 4 (individual
seed times are also available at every meet on the meet sheets)
After the last regular meet of the year, the swimmers with the top two times in each event are identified and
entered into the initial roster for Invitationals.
The Head Coach assembles the relay teams.
The Head Coach may move another swimmer (third seeded or lower) into an event to replace one of the top two
seed for any of the following reasons
to equalize the number of events that higher seeded swimmer must swim
to ensure that there are an appropriate number of swimmers for the relays
to prevent an injury from leaving the team with an inadequate number of swimmers for all events in order
to maximize the potential for the dolphins to have a better overall score at Invitationals.
After the last regular meet of the season, the Head Coach announces to all team members the official roster for
the GGSL Invitationals and schedules practices for the week. This may be done at a team event or via mass
The Head Coach's decision is final and will be fully supported by the Parent Advisory Committee (PAC).
