We will format all events less than, or equal to 500 yards as prelim/finals. The 10 and under 500-yard freestyle events are an exception to the rule and will swim as timed-finals on Thursday night, January 11th, 2018 with all 1000-yard freestyle events.

  • Preliminary races will swim in two separate pools at the same facility. Pool assignments will remain consistent throughout all preliminary competition. We will determine specific pool assignments once we receive all entries.

Super Finals consist of the fop four qualifiers from preliminary competition. “A” Finals for swimmers 15 year and over swimmers consist of qualifiers five through twelve, and “B” Finals consists of qualifiers thirteen through twenty for swimmers 15 years and over.
