Run an A/B/C Type Meet
|Top Previous Next|
An A/B/C Meet is known as a Divisions by Time Standards meet. This type of meet can be a Timed Final meet or a Prelim/Final meet. The results for each event are separated into Divisions (groups) based on either the time standard of the seed time for each swimmer or based on the swum time of each swimmer. If the meet is Prelim/Final, a separate final is created for each time standard. The standard A/B/C meet has 3 groupings based on an A time standard, a B time standard, and a C time standard. The C time standard is usually blank to indicate that it includes all swimmers slower than the B time. Within each event there will be three first places, 3 second places, etc.
For example, let's say for the 11-12 Girls 100 FREE the Time Standard groupings are:
If the scoring is based on the Swum Time, this means that every Athlete that swims a 33.00 or faster will be ranked and scored with the A group. Every Athlete that swims from 33.01 to 40.00 will be ranked and scored with the B Group. Every Athlete that swims 40.01 or slower will be ranked and scored with the C Group.
If the scoring is based on the Seed Time, this means that every Athlete that has a seed time of 33.00 or faster will be ranked and scored with the A group. Every Athlete that has a seed time of 33.01 to 40.00 will be ranked and scored with the B Group. Every Athlete that has a seed time of 40.01 or slower will be ranked and scored with the C Group.
Here is a list of steps for you to follow to setup an A/B/C Time Standard Meet.
That's it! Now when you Run and Score the Meet, MM will break out Place/Finish Scoring into the Time Standard Groups that you have specified for each event. In our example from above, the rankings might look like this:
1st Janet Bailey 31.44
2nd Sarah Getsch 31.78
3rd Mary Glass 32.45
1st Jessica Bording 33.55
2nd Doris Paine 34.01
3rd Betty Ross 34.55
1st Alice Kemp 42.43
2nd Karen Dessler 42.78
3rd Laura Whiting 43.00
Individual High Point and Team Scores can also be broken out using these Time Standard groupings. Go to the Scores report and be sure to click on Divisions to request that MM total the points based on these Time Standard groupings.
Note: Any Result that does not fit any of the group criteria, or an Under or Over Achiever that is declared as not eligible to score, will be ranked in a special group called "Non-Award".
