QUALIFYING

PERIOD

Short Course Championships:  A swimmer must have achieved the qualifying time listed per event in a USA Swimming sanctioned, approved, or observed meet from September 1, 2014 to 11:59 PM the Sunday night before the Monday meet entry deadline.

 

 

INDIVIDUAL ENTRIES AND LIMITS

 

13-14 swimmers may ENTER and SWIM up to nine (9) individual events for the meet and no more than three (3) individual events per day.

 

11-12 swimmers may ENTER and SWIM up to nine (9) individual events plus two (2) exhibition events for the meet. However 11-12 swimmers may only ENTER and SWIM up to four (4) individual events including exhibition events PER DAY. Note that beginning in 2016, 11-12 exhibition events are no longer restricted to only the fastest 24 positively checked in swimmers.  All swimmers who enter and check in will be seeded.

 

10 & Under swimmers may ENTER and SWIM up to nine (9) individual events and no more than five (5) events per day.  

 

Swimmers may enter with any provable time from the qualifying period that meets the event requirements.

 

Swimmers qualifying in the 1650Y Freestyle automatically qualify for the 1000Y Freestyle and vice versa.

·         1650Y Freestyle qualifiers who want to swim the 1000Y Freestyle but do not have a provable qualifying time should enter the appropriate alternate distance event with their 1650Y/1500M Freestyle qualifying time.

·         1000Y Freestyle qualifiers who want to swim the 1650Y Freestyle but do not have a provable qualifying time should enter the appropriate alternate distance event with their 1000Y/800M Freestyle qualifying time.

·         These bonus swimmers will be seeded behind qualifiers.

 

 

RELAY ENTRIES AND LIMITS

 

Relay qualifying times are not required to be provable and may be overridden with aggregate or estimated times.

 

The number of relay entries allowed is determined by the number of swimmers from each team who are entered in individual events.  At least one swimmer entered in an individual event must swim on each relay team or the relay team will be disqualified:

·         1-4 individual event swimmers:  Maximum of one (1) relay team

·         5-8 individual event swimmers:  Maximum of two (2) relay teams

·         9-12 individual event swimmers:  Maximum of three (3) relay teams

·         13 or more individual event swimmers:  Maximum of four (4) relay teams

Each club may enter up to four (4) relay teams in each relay event. Only the A and B designated teams are eligible for scoring.

 

Swimmers designated as ‘relay only’ in OME may ONLY swim relays. Relay only swimmers, including alternates, must be entered on a team’s OME roster, listed on the Meet Entry Form, and must pay the $3.00 NCS Travel Fund surcharge to be eligible to swim on relays.

Entry Fee                          $5.00 per individual event

                                           $25.00 meet entry fee
