COMPETITION

COURSE:                 The competition course is a 25-yard, 8 lane pool with non-turbulent lane lines. The water depth at the start and turn ends is 9 feet. The competition course has been certified in accordance with 104.2.2C(4). The copy of such certification is on file with USA Swimming. Daktronics 2000 automatic timing system with touch pads, backup buttons and watches will be used to measure performances. Continuous warm-up/warm-down area with lane ropes is available at the scoreboard end of the facility. The diving well and hot tub are off-limits.

 

MEET FORMAT:     All Friday events and all relays are timed finals. The 1650 Freestyle will be swum fastest to slowest after seeding. Preliminaries will be conducted Saturday and Sunday mornings for 13-14 and 15&Over events, and Saturday and Sunday afternoons for 10&Under and 11-12 events. All relays will be swum in the preliminary sessions. There will be championship finals for the 10&Under age group. There will be consolation and championship finals for the 11-12, 13-14, and 15&Over age groups. Boilermaker Aquatics reserves the right to use “Fly Over” starts for all events. At the Meet Referee's discretion, events may be combined by age, gender, distance, and/or stroke provided there is at least one empty lane between such combined events.

 

Friday evening events, relays and the 1650 Freestyle may be limited to the top swimmers/teams in each event. Refunds will be issued for swimmers not able to swim an event due to limiting of that event. Swimmers must provide a lap counter for the 500 Freestyle. Swimmers must provide a lap counter and two timers for the 1650 Freestyle.

 

 

ENTRY

DEADLINE &

FORMAT:                 Entries will be accepted starting November 4, 2019 at 8:00AM. Entry deadline is November 15, 2019 at 8:00PM. Deadline will be extended if the meet is not full. Any adding/removing of swimmers or events after acceptance to the meet should be done with a new entry file for the entire team and must be accompanied by written list of those changes. Time changes/updates will be accepted until December 2, 2019 at 8:00PM. Time updates can be made only by means of a new team entry file but do not require a written list of changes. Teams not accepted into competition will have their entries and fees returned as soon as possible or by November 17, 2019. If you do not receive notification of our receipt of your entries within three business days after submission, please contact the Entry Chair.

 

As of December 2, 2019 at 8:00PM, all entries will be considered final and no refunds will be provided. All post-deadline entries will be made based on availability and will be considered and charged as deck entries (i.e., your total fees owed will be sent to you based on entries at 8 pm, any additional swims will be added to this total and be expected to be paid upon arrival at the facility).

 

The preferred method of entry file is Hy-Tek format; any team which sends any other format of competition entries will be charged a $50.00 administration fee.

 

ENTRY LIMIT:        Athletes may enter up to 3 prelims/finals events and 2 timed final events per day. If an entry is submitted with a swimmer in more events than allowed, the swimmer will be entered into the order of events until the rule is satisfied. Entry times must be in short course yards. If entries are limited, BA will return the entry fees to the team(s) whose swimmers are not allowed to compete in the specific event(s). BA reserves the right to limit entries and all events in order to achieve a reasonable timeline. In the event the meet is full, teams will be accepted based on competitiveness, geographic diversity, participation in previous meets, officials provided, and timeliness of entries.

SURCHARGES:      Individual events $5.00 per timed final event entry, individual events $6.00 per prelim/final event entry, and relay events $8.00 per entry.
