July, 31 2020





Meet Host:

Rochester Swim Club

Meet Type:

Sanctioned - Rochester Swim Club will be the host team.  The host team is responsible for completing all the requirements on the MNSI Swim Meet Sanction Checklist. In addition, the host team will merge the meet after each team has completed the meet for results purposes.

Teams that can participate in this meet are teams and athletes that are registered within MNSI.  Aquajets Swim Team will be the only team that can participate at the Rochester Recreation Center facility with a limited number of swimmers per session. All other teams participating must be able to run a full meet at their pool.  This includes providing their own officials, volunteers and equipment needed to run the meet at their pool. Teams will comply with the current state, local, health and USA Swimming guidelines available on the meet date and should meet or exceed all requirements in their facility during the meet. It is not the host team’s responsibility to ensure each team is following the state, local, health and USA Swimming guidelines. The meet will be limited to 10 teams.

Masks/cloth face coverings will be mandatory for all participants. Participants are defined as swimmers, coaches, officials, volunteers and all other applicable adults as defined by MAAPP. Everyone must wear a mask/cloth face covering for the duration of the meet.

Swimmers only have an exception during the swim cycle. The “swim cycle” is defined as the time period beginning with the swimmer being called from the bleachers for their warm-up or race, until their warm-up or race/cool down has ended. After a race, swimmers will proceed directly to the cool down pool, swim as directed by their coach (in a socially distant manner) and that particular swim cycle would end once their cool down is complete. The swimmer will then return immediately to the bleachers, re-apply their mask/face covering, and receive splits/feedback/coaching from their coach in a socially distant manner. Swimmers must wear their mask /cloth face covering when not swimming.

Masks/cloth face coverings must be worn properly according to CDC guidelines and cover the nose and mouth.

If participants and spectators are not abiding by the mask/cloth face covering rule, the competition will suspend until all participants and spectators are in compliance or the offenders have left the venue.
