Entry Procedures: Michigan Swimming has adopted USA Swimming's OME (Online Meet Entry) as the sole process for entering teams and individual swimmers into the State Meet. Times achieved at any USA Swimming sanctioned, observed or approved meet will appear in OME. GPG Coaches will enter all swimmers into the meet using the OME. GPG swimmers can sign up for their events on our website. All events for the State Meet should be discussed with your child's coach prior to the entry deadline.

 

Meet Format: The State meet is a three day, preliminary/final format, LSC Championship where swimmers compete in their age-group.
