FYI, events will be seeded in the following manner: Long Course Hard Cut, Short Course Hard Cut, Long Course Bonus Cut, Short Course Bonus Cut.

Swimmers wishing to compete in the 13&Over 800 meter Freestyle and 13&Over 1500 meter Freestyle may use Qualifying Times for entry from any of the following events: 800 meter Freestyle , 1500 meter Freestyle, 1000 yard Freestyle, 1650 yard Freestyle. Swimmers in 11-12 800 meter Freestyle will enter using their 400 meter Freestyle or 500 yard Freestyle Qualifying Time.
Clarification on 13-14 and Senior 50 yard Events
(Hard Cuts vs. Bonus):
Just a clarification, if a 13-14 or Senior swimmer possesses a 2018 SES Qualifying Time (aka Hard Cut) in the corresponding 100 yard stroke event of the 50 Back, 50 Breast, or 50 Fly, then they will have achieved the Hard Cut for the 50 of that stroke, meaning that they will not need to use one of their two available Bonus swims for that 50 (does not apply to 50 yard Freestyle). Reminder that the 13-14 and Senior 50 Back, 50 Breast, and 50 Fly may be used as Bonus events regardless of if they have achieved a Bonus cut in the corresponding 100 yard event. Additionally for 2018, the 50 yard Freestyle may be used as a "Free Bonus" event as there will be no established Bonus cut for that event. A swimmer who has achieved a Hard Cut in the 50 yard Freestyle will not have the 50 Free count against their Bonus entries.
