SEEDING For events 200 meters and below, seeding will occur after the scratch deadline the evening before at 6 pm. Individual events will be championship seeded for every heat for every event 200 meters and below and swum slowest to fastest. Every individual heat 200 meters and below will have a seeded swimmer in it. Events 400 meters and above will be deck-seeded requiring a positive check-in by 9:00am on the day of the event at the clerk of course. Relays must also check-in (see RELAYS). The 400 IM and 400 Free will swim: 3 circle seeded heats women, 3 circle seeded heats men, then alternating women-men fastest to slowest. The women’s 800 and the men’s 1500 will be timed final events. The fastest heat of each event will be swum in event order in Finals. All other heats will be swum slowest to fastest alternating women 800/men 1500 such that the second-fastest seeded heat will end at 4:30pm. All competitors in these two events must provide two timers and one lap counter for their swim. Preliminary sessions will be seeded the evening before. Please scratch by 6:00pm any event you will not swim the next day. There is not a penalty for failing to scratch a prelim event; this is a courtesy to the other swimmers. Please help us eliminate empty lanes. All deck entries for the next day’s events received before 6:00pm will be seeded. In Finals, we will swim women’s heats slowest to fastest (C, B, A) then the men’s heats in the same fashion. The top 24 swimmers in each event will swim in finals, excluding timed finals.

Entry fee per event is $15 not to exceed $90 maximum.  

Time Trials are available to any athlete entered in meet Friday between prelims and finals.  Do not have to have meet standard to enter time trials.

CHECK-IN Positive check-in is required for the 400 Free, 800 Free, 1500 Free and 400 IM. Swimmers in the 400 free or 400 IM must check in by 9:00am on the day of the event.

SCRATCHES For preliminary events, please scratch by 6:00pm any event you will not swim the next day. There is not a penalty for failing to scratch a prelim event; this is a courtesy to the other swimmers. Please help us eliminate empty lanes. In a Prelim/Final meet, the finalists and alternates for finals shall be announced and shall have thirty (30) minutes after the announcement to scratch from finals. Any qualified swimmer in the event (a swimmer is qualified for finals or consolation finals or any other bonus finals if he has successfully completed the event in Prelims) may be moved into finals due to scratches, therefore all swimmers who will not be present at finals must scratch to avoid a possible suspension from the meet and a fine of $50.00. Thirty minutes after the announcement no further scratches shall be accepted. The existing scratches will be tabulated and the finalists and two (2) alternates for the event shall be set. Only the finalists set at this point may be subject to the above fines and banishment from competition, even though any qualified swimmer may be moved into finals. The alternates, after the existing scratches are tabulated, will not be penalized if they are unavailable to compete in finals. Alternately, a swimmer may make a declaration of intent to scratch within 30 minutes of the announcement of the preliminary event results, with final decision to scratch or not scratch being reported to the scratch official within 30 minutes of the completion of the swimmer’s last individual preliminary event of the session. A swimmer declaring their intention to scratch and failing to return to the scratch official to make final resolution on the intent to scratch will result in the swimmer being seeded into the respective final heat. This rule also applies to alternates announced for each of the individual events. 


ENTRY INFORMATION Qualifying times are based on the Sectional standards found at Swimmers who have one or more LC Sectional Standard (attached) can swim an additional event (400 meters and under) in which they own a bonus standard. There may be one bonus event entered for each Sectional Standard entered. To swim the 800/1500 swimmers must have the Sectional cut in either the 400 Free or the 800/1500. A female having the 1500 cut is qualified to swim the 800. A male having the 800 cut is qualified to swim the 1500. Enter events using a real long course time. Do not enter at the cut-off or with a NT. If the qualifying time for an event was achieved in short course, please enter using a best long course time and send a qualified proof with your entry. 50s of stroke must be entered with 100 times. Standards for the 50s of stroke are determined by 100 standards.
