Scoring and Awards
SCORING AND AWARDS
Points are awarded according to NWAL policy.
Ribbons are awarded to swimmers finishing first through sixth in each event. Swimmers in the 6 & Under age group will receive participation ribbons. Both of these are put into the Family File Box and placed out at the Tuesday or Wednesday practice following each meet.
Deerfield gives Personal Best ribbons to swimmers who improve their official times in an event, regardless of where they finish in the heat. At home meets, the scribe may give these ribbons out to eligible 10 and under swimmers as they finish their event. Older swimmers may request a ribbon if they qualify. All four members of a relay team will receive a ribbon if the relay improves a posted time. For away meets, these ribbons will be distributed at practice the following week. Announcement recognition and a ribbon will be given at the meets to swimmers establishing a new pool record.
PEP RALLY AND PARTIES
Our annual Pre-Season Party and Pictures will be held the day before our first meet. The Pep Rally will be the day before Divisionals. The End-of-Season Party and Award Ceremony for team members, families and sponsors will be held the Thursday after Divisionals.
