There will be relays at this meet. Please make sure you indicate in the Note Section of the Athlete Entry if you do not want your swimmer included in the relay selection.  If it is left blank, the Coaches will assume that it is alright to enter your swimmer in a relay. 
 

Please make sure you indicate in the Note Section anything you feel is important for the Coaches to know.  Please let us know what days you would like to swim. If nothing is put down we will assume that means they will be swimming all days. Please know that the
