Format: This is a 3-day meet. Prelims-Finals for 13-Over each day (P-6:30am warm-up, 8:00am start; F-4:00pm warm-up, 5:00pm start), 10-U & 11-12 Timed finals session each day (estimated 12:00pm warm-up, 1:00pm start)
There will be a bonus consolation, consolation, and finals heat (top 24) for each of the Prelims-Finals events 200M and shorter. The 400 IM and 400 Free will be consolation and finals heats only (top 16).
Qualifying: This is a time standards meet: You must have times that meet or exceed their custom standards (Standards are at/around A times for 10-U, 11-12, but faster than A times for 13-Over sessions).
- This meet FILLS VERY QUICKLY so our entry, as submitted on the day entries open, are likely to be the final -- or very nearly final -- entry for the meet.
- The 12-Under timed finals sessions have historically been smaller and therefore we might be able to add new races. This is not a guarantee!
- 400 Free and 400 IM are limited to the top 40 swimmers, seeded LCM first, then SCY. Swimmers with yards time are not likely to swim, though we should be able to update to meters seed times following the spring LCM meets at the U and Schroeder. At some point closer to the meet we will be notified of whether our swimmers will be in the 400s. If the swimmer will not be swimming the 400, we will be given the option to enter an alternate event if qualified.
- If you COMMIT TO ATTEND and we submit your entries, THERE IS NO REFUND as the meet host locks in the initial entry numbers. Our FINAL entries will be submitted on May 14.
