A swimmer may enter a maximum of 9 individual events but can only compete in a maximum 3 individual events per day to a maximum of 7 individual events in the meet. Relay events do not count against daily or meet maximums. All seed times must be either short course yards (seeded first) or long course meters (seeded last).
Swimmer may swim a total of seven (7) individual championship events and (2) Time Trial events.
All entries must be verifiable from January 1, 2019 to present.



The Top 24 qualifiers in each prelim/finals event advance to Evening Finals. The top 8 qualifiers will swim in the Championship heat, the 9th-16th qualifiers will swim in the Consolation heat, and the 17th- 24th qualifiers will swim in the Bonus heat. All 24 places will score. All swimmers must report to their blocks for the start of their heat.

Swimmers who have exceeded the qualifying time for a championship meet but age-up before the subsequent championship meet will be permitted to compete at that subsequent meet in their new age-group thereby allowing them the opportunity to participate in a season culminating championship meet. Swimmers meeting these criteria should enter the meet with a provable seed time. A note should be sent to the entry coordinator explaining that they are entering under the age- up exception. The swimmer will be eligible to receive awards. However, they would not be included in the MSI formula concerning number of relays allowed at the State Meet based on the number of Champ swimmers. Swimmers being entered under this criterion should be noted in the email with the team entries.


Time trials will be offered, time permitting at the discretion of the meet referee. Time trials are open only to swimmers in the meet. Time trials count toward a swimmer’s daily entry limit (but not against their overall individual championship event total for the meet -See Entry Limitations). Sign up will be at the Admin/Meet Management table. There will be a cost of $10.00 per time trial event. A 10- minute warm-up for time trials will be allowed as time permits at the discretion of the meet referee. Time trial swimmers are required to supply their own timer. Any time trial must be submitted by the athlete’s coach.
