Description

This meet will be open to all swimmers registered to participate in USA-Swimming & PVS Meets

Updated Meet Info


Meet Website

We’ve set up a website that we plan to use for all official announcements, etc. for the meet.  Please use this to stay up to speed on seeding, results, scores, etc. 

Timers

FRIDAY – Swimmers will need to provide their own timers for the 500 free/ 400IM.  And if desired their own counter for the 500 free.

In order to ensure we have needed back up timers, I’ve assigned teams based on size some positions for each of you to help fill.  Please direct your parents to this website to sign up.  Lanes will be assigned at the meet for each team so if a team is short we will be asking for help from that team.

Scratches & Event limitations

Friday Events

All events Friday will be positive check in (note they are swum fast to slow based on seed times and are combined genders). 

                Check In Deadline (on deck at Freedom) 

  • Open 400 IM – 5:15pm

  • 12 & Under 500 free – 6:00pm

 

Saturday Events

All events will be seeded on Friday, February 14 at noon.  Please send me any scratches by 8am to ensure enough time to seed & print the programs. 

Saturday Finals

If your swimmer qualifies and plans to swim finals, there is nothing they need to do.  If your swimmer qualifies for finals but does not intend to swim, they will need to scratch no later than 30 minutes after the announced results from prelims.  We do not have a penalty for a no show in finals or any positive check in event, however we would all like to have a nice full pool and not waste any opportunities for others.  PLEASE respect the other swimmers that would like the opportunity to swim in finals. 

At finals, we will fill any open lanes with alternates that are present. 

We are planning to parade the A finalists out and will provide details on this next week.

Sunday Events

Because of the time of year with sickness and potentially weather, we are going to require positive check in for all events 200 yards and longer for all ages and 100 yard events for 10 & unders.  Please assist your swimmers in getting properly checked in.  Once the deadline passes, the event is closed for any changes until the event is seeded.  Then any swimmer that missed check in may be added into open lanes that are available.
