MEET FORMAT:

  • 13&Over = Prelims in the morning/Finals at night.  The number of swimmers coming back to finals will be based on the number of swimmers entered, according to the following formula:

1-20 entries = one heat of ten in finals

21-40 entries = two heats of ten in finals

41plus entries = three heats of ten in finals

  • 11-12 = Prelims early afternoon/Finals at night. 

The number of swimmers coming back to finals will be based on the number of swimmers entered, according to the following formula:

1-20 entries = one heat of ten in finals

21-40 entries = two heats of ten in finals

41plus entries = three heats of ten in finals

  • 10&Under = Timed Finals in the afternoon. 

 

FINALS: It is the swimmer’s responsibility to “KNOW” for a fact if they made finals or not.  It is not the coach’s responsibility.  The coaches can help the swimmer learn if they made finals but cannot be responsible for the swimmer “knowing” if they made finals or not.  IF YOU MAKE FINALS AND DO NOT COME BACK TO SWIM IN FINALS…….Any swimmer not planning on swimming finals needs to tell the coach and must “scratch” finals.  If you don’t scratch and don’t show up for your finals swim….you will be penalized by meet management from competiing in your next individual event.
