13 Over State
Mar 4, 2021 (09:00 AM) - Mar 7, 2021 (08:00 PM)
February, 8 2021
Preliminary Format -- 13-Over State Meet, March 4-7, 2021
- Safety Procedures: Meet will be run under current RecPlex meet safety protocols with any changes required by LSC.
- Facility Session Limit: Athlete count is limited to 225. Swimmers have assigned seats in stands, deck bleachers and if necessary, the water park (which could be closed to the public for this meet). To accomplish this, sessions will be subdivided as needed by gender and/or age group. Most likely scenario based on early estimates from teams is that there will be two prelim sessions. Sessions will be divided by age group, gender or otherwise depending on distribution of athletes.
- Second Site Option: In the event that sessions cannot be divided to stay under facility limit, WSAC is available as a second site. Teams would be assigned by the Tech Planning Committee to either site shortly after the 2/9 deadline.
- Finals: Finals will be run with top 10 swimmers in each of three age groups, 13-14, 15-16, 17-Over. Maximum number of individual finalist spots on any given night is 196, meaning finals sessions will be well under the established session maximum.
- Entry Deadlines: Early entry deadline of 2/9/21 with additional qualifiers added through 2/22/21. Final decisions on session arrangement, and the inclusion of relays, bonus and relay-only swimmers will be made after the initial deadline by the State Meet Safety sub-committee.
- Relays/Relay-only: Relays will only be included if session size allows. Relays will be run in alternating lanes to decrease crowding behind the blocks. State Meet safety committee may limit relay entries to A only and not allow relay-only participation to maintain target session capacity.
- Bonus entries: Bonus entries may be accepted if timeline allows. Bonus entries may be limited to sessions in which the swimmer has a qualified swim to stay under 225 swimmer limit.
- Entry Fees: Entry Fee, $12/Event, $20/Relay, $5/LSC Splash Fee, $16 WSAC Facility Fee.
