How are the Large, Medium and Small Team Sizes Determined?

The calculations for the current year (2016/17) are based on the number of registered swimmers from the year before (2015-16) so that clubs remain in their category for the entire year.  Over the years, MSABC has had about 40 clubs.  The MSABC Board meets over the summer and are given the list of clubs and their number of registered swimmers.  Historically, there are natural breaks and the goal is to have teams competing against other teams of roughly similar numbers.  These natural breaks mean that there just a few large teams, a few more medium teams and the rest are small teams.

For 2016/17, the selected break points are:

1-25 Small
26-80 Medium
81+ Large
