Athlete Limits/Registration Info:

Each LSC is limited to 60 athletes and 5 swimmers per event, each age, and gender. When all ISI applications have been received, the team will be built starting with the top three times in each event. If the 60 athlete limit and the event limit is not yet achieved the team will look at top four times, then top five times etc. Once the 60 athlete limit is reached, additional entries based upon the 5 entries/event will be filled only with existing team members. This may result in entries where a faster time in the LSC exists.

Athletes can now swim up to 7 individual events.  

Swimmers are required to be available for the entire meet (all 3 sessions) as each team is limited to 60 named athletes and not 60 swimmers per session.
