For 11 & older swimmers this meet has preliminary & finals sessions. There will be two 11-12 heats and two 13&O heats of each event in finals. Up to this point in the season, BCST swimmers have not had the chance to come back and compete in Finals so we wanted to make you aware of the procedures that go with it and the risks if they are not followed.
Swimmers whose names are announced as qualifying for the finals of any prelims/finals event, and who fail to show for that event in the final's session, will be barred from competing in the next individual event in which they are entered. The way to avoid this is to scratch out of finals if you intend not to compete. Once event results are announced, finalists and consolation finalists have 30 minutes to scratch. If you do scratch, please inform your coach of your decision to do so.
Currently the prelim session is scheduled to end at 1:24 pm on Saturday with finals warm-up beginning at 5:30 pm. On Sunday prelims is scheduled to end at 12:37 pm and finals warm up begins at 4:30 pm.
If you have any questions regarding this, please don’t hesitate to contact your coach.
Good luck BCST swimmers!
