Relays

No swimmers will be entered in a relay unless they also have individual events that day, so no one has to drive to attend a session just for a relay. Swimmers should not have to attend a session ONLY for a relay, but check with the coaches if you aren't sure.  As a reminder, the top 8 relays from prelims will be eligible to compete in finals each night, except on Sunday.  On Sunday, the relays will be swum as timed finals at prelims.

 

Distance Events

All distance events are swum as timed finals, with the top 8 seeded entries swimming during finals and all other swimmers competing during prelims.  There will be positive check-in for the 11 - 14 year old 1500, 800, 400 freestyle & 400 IM events. Check in will close at 9:00am each day.  Timers will be provided for all events, but swimmers will need to provide their own counters for the freestyle events.
