Team Eugene Open
Age group team meet in Eugene
THIS MEET REPLACES THE MIKE MORRIS MEET
Please remind your swim parents that this is a very difficult meet to get into (11 teams didn't get in last year), and that they should NOT purchase hotel rooms that are non-refundable.
The meet is taking place on June 29th through July 1st, 2018.
Entries are open on May 30th at 10:00am, and close on June 19th at 10am.
****We will be allowing early entry again this year****
We are encouraging teams to bring officials by offering EARLY ENTRY PRIVILEGES to teams who can provide a list of committed, qualified, and approved officials. “Committed” means the official is agreeing to work a session in which you have swimmers. “Qualified” means the official is fully certified by USA Swimming and is registered to your team. “Approved” means the list has been seen and is acceptable to our meet referee, Margie Zerr.
With Margie’s approval, I will accept your team’s entries on May 29th, at 10am. As a reminder, having officials and Ref approval does not guarantee your team into the meet. Entries will still be accepted in the order received.
The number of officials required for early entry will be as follows:
0-10 swimmers…. 1 certified official
11-20 swimmers…. 2 certified officials
21+ swimmers… 3 certified officials
A list should be sent to Margie Zerr BEFORE May 21st at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
(This is all in the meet information as well.)
I would also like to point out that some of the longer events (200s, 400IM, 800, and 1500) in the afternoon sessions are "open". If you have 12 & Under families/swimmers who pick their own events, please make sure they understand that these longer events are in the afternoon session, and that the afternoon session will not be governed by the 4 hour rule. It is not our intent to encourage 10 & Unders to swim in these events (we would like to discourage it), but to allow 11&12yr olds the opportunity to race in events that are currently available to them at championship meets.
