Sport Specific Information

USA Coaches are allowed on deck with proper identification.

In events with few athletes, the meet management has the right to seed divisions together. Seed times should be in yards or NT (no time).  Please indicate on entry form.

The 500 yard event is not guaranteed as it is based on the number of swimmers.  If athletes swim a distance event (500 or longer), they will be expected to count for another individual in a different heat of that event or arrange for a person to serve as their personal lap counter.
