Current USA rules, including the “whistle start” and “no recall” rules, will govern strokes,
turns, starts, finishes, etc., with compliance enforced by the referees, starters, and stroke
and turn judges. For ages 9 and up, “Flyover” starts will be used during trials. Coaches will
be reminded of this at the coaches’ meeting both days.

women may not cover the neck or extend past the shoulders or below the knee;
2. No zippers or other fastening devices are allowed except for a waist tie on a brief or
3. Suits must be of textile material and must not be made of any rubberized type of
material such as polyurethane or neoprene

Individual Events
Preliminary heats will be held for relays and all individual events except for the IM,
which will be timed finals. The top 10 swimmers in each individual event will then
participate in the Championship Finals for 1st through 10th place. Swimmers who
finish in 11th through 20th place will compete in the Consolation Finals held
immediately before the Championship Finals of the event. The top 10 relays in each
event will swim in Championship Finals. All finalists, including relays and alternates,
must check in at the Clerk of the Course when that final event is called.
• Relay trials will be Friday. Medley Relay finals will be the last event on Saturday,
Free Relay finals will be the last event on Sunday.
• Only the top 10 relays will swim in finals. Places 11th-20th will still score points,
but will not compete in the finals session.
• Names of the 4 swimmers in each relay and up to 2 alternates must be submitted
with your team entries. These do not have to be the actual swimmers on that
relay; however, any possible relay swimmer must be entered in the Meet as an
“Athlete” on the entries submitted August 7th. Swimmers can only be entered in
one relay per event, meaning the same swimmer may not swim on both an “A”
and a “B” relay.
• If a swimmer competes on a relay on Friday, they may compete in that relay only
in the finals session. For example, a swimmer who competes on an “B” Medley
Relay team on Friday, is not eligible to swim on the “A” Medley Relay on
Saturday. A swimmer who doesn’t compete on a relay in the trials session is still
eligible to compete on a relay in finals. Any change to the names of
swimmers between the trials and finals session must be competed on a
Relay Change form and submitted to the Meet Director by the beginning of
the lunch break each day.
