ZONE REQUIREMENTS AND SELECTION PROCESS

NJ Swimming will enter all swimmers that have made the qualifying time standards and who apply to the New Jersey Swimming Office.  Swimmers are allowed to enter six events with no more than 3 events per day plus relays.

To participate, you must be a NJ Swimming USA registered swimmer, and have participated in a minimum of (2) NJ Long Course Swimming sanctioned swim meets during the current year. In addition, athletes who have competed in an Individual Event at the USA Swimming National Championships, the USA Swimming Spring Championships, U.S. Open, the USA Swimming Junior Championships or a USA Swimming Trials class meet are not eligible to enter and compete at an Eastern Zone AG Championship meet. Athletes 13 years of age and over who have achieved a qualifying time in an individual event for any of the above meets prior to the entry deadline for the Eastern Zone meet, may not enter and compete in an Eastern Zone Age Championship meet. Athletes 12 years of age or younger who have achieved a qualifying time in an individual event for any of the above meets, but have not competed in that event(s) at the stated meet, may enter and compete in that event in an Eastern Zone AG Championship meet.


OUTREACH FUNDING NOW AVAILABLE FOR QUALIFIED ATHLETES. NJ Swimming is proud to announce funding for outreach athletes. Any Athlete qualifying as Outreach (means they receive State Funding for meals, healthcare, etc., proof needs to be sent to the NJ Swim Office) can apply for reimbursement money if they qualify and compete at Zones.
