SEE PAGE 5 FOR ACCEPTABLE PROOF OF TIME & DOCUMENTATION

 

SWIMMERS WITH A DISABILITY:  Qualifying times for 50-yard/meter events will be waived for swimmers with a disability.  Swimmers with a disability may enter an event (such as the 100 free) and swim it with a longer yardage event (such as the 200 free) provided his/her time for the lesser yardage event (100 free) is equal to or faster than the listed qualifying time for the longer yardage event (200 free).

Entries for swimmers with a disability should be handled in the following manner: (1) enter the swimmer in the Hy-Tek database (or on the regular entry form); (2) list in the email accompanying the Hy-Tek entry file (or on a separate sheet of paper) the name of the swimmer, the stroke(s)/distance(s) s/he wishes to swim, the entry times, the day/session s/he wishes to swim the event(s), and the manner in which s/he prefers to be seeded (with a longer distance or with a different age group); and (3) provide any information about special accommodations needed by the swimmer. The final determination of seeding will be made by the Meet Referee after consultation with the swimmer and his/her coach.

 

RELAYS:  All relays will be timed finals swum during the preliminary sessions. Teams may enter two relay-only swimmers per age group/gender. Teams may enter an unlimited number of relays but no more than two relays per team are eligible to score. 

 

DECK ENTRIES: Deck entries will be taken on a space available basis up until 35 minutes prior to the meet start at $10 per individual event and $16 per relay.  Swimmers new to the meet must provide proof of Lake Erie Swimming membership and pay the surcharge of $2.00.  On-deck registration will be available for all but coach registrations. 

 

ELIGIBILITY:  Swimmers must be current athlete members of LESI and have met the time standard requirements.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday Preliminary Competition: All age groups will compete together by gender in the preliminary competition for individual events; however, the events will be scored separately and swum separately by age group (10 and Under, 11-12, 13-14 yr old) during the finals competition. 

  • The 800 free and 1500 free will be timed finals, swum fastest to slowest, alternating girls and boys with all heats swum with prelims. 
  • The 400 free and 400 IM will be timed finals with the fastest-seeded heat of each age group swimming at finals. Swimmers in the 400 free and 400 IM may declare at check-in that they wish to declare an early swim by placing a “P” next to their name.  Swimmers should remember that those seeded ahead of them may scratch or declare an early swim, so swimmers should be prepared to be seeded with finals.

 

FINALS:  Some final events may be swum together if entries dictate. 

  • The top 9 swimmers in each age group (10U, 11-12, 13-14) in each event will compete in A finals.

  • 11/12 will have B finals except for 200 back, breast and fly which will only have an A final
  • 13/14 will have B finals in all prelim/final events
  • A ready room will be employed for the A finalists.  Swimmers should report to the ready room when their events are called.  Swimmers will be paraded to the blocks.

All swimmers must check in for all of their events no later than 30 minutes prior to the start of the session.  Heat and lane assignments will be posted once the meet is seeded. There will be no clerk of course.  Swimmers are responsible for showing up at their blocks for their events.  Relay cards must be turned in upon call in order to be seeded.
