Eligibility details:  All individual event’s qualifying times will be governed by “No Faster Than” (NFT) time standards.  The NFT time standards are equivalent to the SCY individual qualification time standards for the 2020 PVS 14 & Under Junior Olympic Championship for the 14 & Under swimmers and PVS Junior Championships for the 15-18 swimmers.

A contestant may enter a maximum of six (6) individual events.  No more than three (3) individual events per day.  Swimmers shall compete at the age attained on the first day of the meet.


Swimmers who attain a new age group between February 24th and March 5th for the 15 & Over swimmers and March 12th for the 14 & Under swimmers may compete as “exhibition” in any event where their time: (1) is faster than the 2020 PVS 18 & Under AG Championship NFT standard for their current age group; (2) is slower that the 2020 PVS 14 & Under JO’s or Junior Champ “NST” standards for their new age group.  These exhibition swims will prevent swimmers from potentially being excluded from both the 2020 18 & Under Qualifier, 2020 14 & U JO’s or the 2020 Junior Champ meets.  If you have questions about eligibility please contact Age Group Chairman, Blair Piddington at .

No “NO TIME”entries will be accepted.  All swimmers must have a verifiable entry time to enter an event.

No DECK ENTRIESwill be accepted at this meet.

It is anticipated that all events 200 yards or longer will be positive check in.  The meet director will determine which events will be positive check in and will distribute a check-in schedule prior to the meet.  Athletes who check into a deck-seeded event, have been seeded and fail to swim the event will be barred from their next scheduled individual event, unless excused by the Meet Referee before the event takes place.

Positive Check In - will close 30 minutes after warm ups begin each session.
