Admissions There is no entry fee.
Bull pen for swimmers ages 8 and younger only.
Swimmers who are not talking to a coach before or after their race, ABOUT their race, should not be in the coaches area. It is very full during the conference meet and they can't be distracted from coaching and watching swimmers.
Team Areas Teams areas will be set up outside the YMCA in the grassy areas. In case of inclement weather, teams will be set up inside.
There will be two lanes in the smaller pool for warm-ups and cool-downs after races. For our team, I am limiting that to 11&ups. 10&unders are only permitted in there if they have a coach with them. We have had too many kids messing around in previous years. Also along these lines, swimmers like to walk around together and may end up finding the little playground in the YMCA, but they are NOT allowed to play there.
Individual awards Individual awards will be given to the top eighteen finishers (1 – 6 with medals, 7 - 12 with overlay ribbons and 13 – 18 with ribbons) in each event. Relay awards will be given to the top six finishers (1 – 6 medals). Team trophies will be awarded for the top three places in combined team scoring. Team trophies will be awarded for the top finisher in each age group scoring. The 6 & Under 25 yard Freestyle, 6 & Under 25 yard Backstroke and Open 200 Free are scored in the overall team scoring, but they do not count towards the age group high point trophies.
Concession A concession area will be available
