  • The scratch deadline for Preliminary Events and Timed Final Events will be 30 minutes prior to the start of the session where the individual or relay is contesting the event.

Scratching from Prelims:

  • Any swimmer not appearing for an individual preliminary event or timed final event, without officially scratching per meet guidelines, shall not be penalized; however, that event will be counted against their 7 event maximum for the meet and their 3 event per day maximum.
  • Any relay team that fails to appear for a pre-seeded relay event shall not be penalized.

Scratching from Finals:

  • Any swimmer listed as an original qualifier, qualifying for a consolation or championship final in an individual event who fails to compete in said final shall be barred from his/her next individual event, except as noted in ‘Exception for Failure to Compete’ below.  A declared false start under 101.1.3F or deliberate delay of meet under 101.1.5 is not permitted and will be regarded as a failure to compete. In order to remain eligible for subsequent sessions, the swimmer must declare their intention to swim with the Administrative Referee prior to the completion of the current session.

First and second alternates shall be announced along with the final qualifiers. The alternates shall not be penalized if unavailable to compete in the finals.
  • Where consolation finals have not been swum and a barring or withdrawal is known to the Referee, the Referee shall reseed the consolation and championship final, if necessary, to insert the alternate(s) in the appropriate lane(s), filling all lanes in the final.
  • If the consolation final has already been contested, the championship final shall be swum without reseeding for the empty lanes(s).
  • Failure to scratch consolation or championship finals according to the rules above shall result in a $50.00 penalty fee per event against the swimmer if the event is his/her last event of the meet.  The penalty fee shall be billed to the club and paid to the host group member.

Exception for Failure to Compete:

No penalty shall apply for failure to withdraw or compete in an individual event if:

  • The Referee is notified in the event of illness or injury and accepts the proof thereof.
  • A swimmer qualifying for a consolation or championship final race based upon the original results of the preliminaries notifies the Clerk of Course within thirty (30) minutes after the announcement of qualifiers for that race that they may not intend to compete and further declares their final intentions within thirty (30) minutes following their last individual preliminary event.
  • It is determined by the Referee that failure to compete is caused by circumstances beyond the control of the swimmer.

Relays and Relay Check-In Procedures:

  1. All relays are conducted on a timed final basis.  Entry forms for all relays will be included in the Team packets and must be turned in prior to the relay forms deadline in order to be seeded.  The coach shall list the competing relay swimmers, their first and last names and order of swimming for each entered relay.  Relay forms shall be returned to the host team designated person for entry by the deadline.  However, relay swim order may be changed up to the time of the swim.
