Who Should Attend: Swimmers age 14 and under on July 25, 2018 are eligible to compete. The age of the swimmer will be his/her age on July 25, 2018.

Sign-up Deadline: July 7th
Meet Format: Prelims will be conducted using both ends of the 50-meter pool – odd heats finishing at one end (closest to the men’s locker room) and even heats finishing at the other end (closest to the women’s locker room). Chase starts may be used at the discretion of the meet referee. Preliminary events will be seeded slowest to fastest. Events on Wednesday, the 1500 Free on Sunday will swim fastest to slowest. The 800 and 1500 Free require positive check-in and will swim alternating heats of girls and boys. There will be a 15 minute break on Wednesday between the 800 Free and the 800 Free Relay. There will be a 10 minute break during prelims on Sunday after the relay and before the start of the 1500 Free. STA-18-49 In prelim/final events, two heats in the 10 & under, 11- 12 and 13-14 age groups, will advance to finals.
Entries: Swimmers may enter as many events as they are qualified to swim but they may only compete in a total of 7 individual events during the entire meet with no more than 3 individual events during any one day, plus 1 relay event per day. Time trial events will count as one of the 3 events allowed per swimmer per day, but not as one of the seven 7 individual meet events.
Entry Fees: $15.00 per individual event. $5.00 surcharge per athlete. Deck Entries are $30.00 per individual event. Time Trials are $30.00 per individual event. DM will add an additional $3 fee per swimmer per meet to cover credit card service charges.
Bonus Swims: Swimmers with 1 regular cut get 1 bonus swim. Swimmers with 2 regular cuts get 1 bonus swim. Swimmers with 3 or more regular cuts get 0 bonus swims. Individual time standards only (relay times are not included in the Bonus cuts).
Time Trials: Time Trials will be held, time permitting, for TAGS participants between preliminaries and finals on Friday and Saturday. Time Trial entries will be accepted from 9AM -11AM on Friday and Saturday. There will be no time trials on Wednesday, Thursday or Sunday. The entry fee is $30 per event. A swimmer may swim a maximum of one time trial per day. The 800 Free will only be offered for Time Trial on Friday and the 1500 Free will only be offered for Time Trial on Saturday. Time trial events count towards a swimmers maximum events per day as outlined in the "Entries" section. Time Trial results will be published with the Final Results: however, these times cannot be considered for state records. Events will swim mixed gender. Order of events will be: 50’s, 100’s, 200’s, 400 IM, 500 FR and distance of that day. There will be NO break between the end of the prelim session and the start of time trials.
