Eligibility & Bonus:

Swimmers must have achieved a District short course (SCY or SCM) or long course (LCM) qualifying time by the entry deadline for the present meet.

A swimmer with an LSC Championship SC qualifying time in an event is not permitted to swim that same event at District SC Championships. However, if a swimmer has an LSC Championship SCM or LCM qualifying time in an event, the swimmer is still eligible to compete in that event at District SC Championships as an exhibition event.

Swimmers that have achieved a SCM or LCM qualifying time, but not the SCY qualifying time, shall enter with the time they have actually achieved. The entry report must clearly note the submitted time as a SCM or LCM time.

Age of the swimmer on the first day of the meet determines age group classification for the entire meet.

The top 2 swimmers in each event will automatically qualify for the Short Course Championships meet in that event if they do not achieve the SC Championships standard. Coaches must enter those athletes by using the special instructions outlined in the Championship meet information. 

Bonus Swims:

Each swimmer achieving and entering a minimum of one District qualifying time shall be allowed to enter a maximum of two (2) bonus events in which he/she has not achieved the District qualifying time. Swimmers wishing to enter a bonus event must have a provable time in that event, NT will not be permitted.
