    Sixth Event Decision for 2009 LC Nationals

    The Championship Committee has decided to drop the sixth event from the 2009 Long Course Nationals due to the large number of entries and expected long days at the meet. There are 1147 swimmers entered in the meet.

    The Psych sheets, meet roster, team rosters, and swimmer lookup feature are now available for review.
    I can't remember a life before Google.
    Fortunately, I can Google it.

    Do we get a refund on the 6th event fee.

    No. That is clearly stated in the meet information.

    Re: Sixth Event Decision for 2009 LC Nationals

    After someone talked about the demographics of the swimmers at the Clovis meet, it got me interested. So (yes, I'm a stats geek) I broke it down for Indy; see attached file.

    The only age group where women are more numerous than men is 25-29. Family seems to impact women participation in competition more than men, which is perhaps not so surprising. There is a bump in participation in the 40s of both genders, again maybe not so surprising.

    What does surprise me a little is that the "middle-aged bump" is so much more prolonged among men than women. I wonder why that is?

    I couldn't help but notice that my new age group (45-49) is the most populated for both men and women. Sheesh, it figures...

    Thanks, Jim! That was fast!
    When will you have the estimated timeline for each day?

    Your stats show a huge upswing in the 35-39 male group. There are 40 30-34 male swimmers whereas they are 72 in the 35-39. I think that is due to guys returning to the sport after their 4-year college swimming hiatus.

    On the women side, the 30-34 downturn is possibly when most women are having their babies. There are two very good 30-34 female swimmers in my region that are currently MIA to baby commitments.
