Combining of heats where the opportunity arises may be performed at the discretion of the meet referee, administrative referee and/or meet director.

The following SCRATCH RULE will be strictly enforced for all events with finals:

Swimmers qualifying for finals must scratch if they do not plan to compete. Scratches MUST utilize a Scratch Form obtained from the scratch table and signed by the swimmer's coach. To be accepted, these Scratch Forms MUST be turned in at the scratch table within 30 minutes of the announcement of that event's results. After 30 minutes, the results are official.

Failure to compete in a Consolation and/or Championship Finals Event in which a swimmer is seeded, the swimmer will:

  1. miss his/her next individual event (prior swims not affected) –or

  2. If the event missed is his/her last event, a $25.00 fine will be imposed on

    the team.

  3. Exceptions:Nopenaltiesshallapplyforfailuretocompeteinfinalsifthe

    referee is notified in the event of injury or illness and accepts the proof thereof, or it is determined by the referee that failure to compete is caused by circumstances beyond the control of the athlete.

Declaration of Intent to Scratch: Within 30 minutes of the announcement of an event's results, a swimmer may declare that he/she may not compete in the finals of that event pending the results of subsequent preliminary events. The swimmer must declare his/her final intentions within 30 minutes of the completion of their last individual event. If the swimmer does not return to confirm the scratch, the swimmer will be seeded into the finals event and penalties set forth for failure to compete will apply.

Seeding for finals:

Finals events will be seeded based on the OFFICIAL preliminary results. AFTER the results are official, any scratches made known to the Administrative Referee will result in the entire event being re-seeded if and only if there is sufficient time to do so prior to the event's being swum. If there is not sufficient time and if the scratch or no-show is in the consolation heat, the alternate swimmer will simply swim in the lane originally assigned to the scratched or no-show swimmer. If there is not sufficient time and if the scratch or no-show is in the championship heat, no alternate will swim, and the lane will remain empty. Once the consolation heat has swum, there will be no alternate in the championship heat.
