No penalty for scratching on the block in the morning prelims with the exception of deck seeded events. Any swimmer entered in an individual deck seeded event who has checked in for that event must swim the event unless he/she notifies the clerk of course before the seeding has begun that he/she wishes to scratch. Failure to do so will result in the swimmer being barred from the next individual event in which he/she is entered on that day or the next day of the meet, whichever is first. Deck seeded events shall be closed for seeding as listed on the order of events.

B -Swimmers may reverse their intention to scratch and choose to be seeded for finals if they do so within thirty (30) minutes of the completion of the swimmer’s last preliminary event for that day.
 
C. -Any swimmer in a championship or consolation final who fails to swim that event will be barred from their next individual event, excluding finals and relays, in which he/she is entered unless excused by the meet referee.
No penalty shall apply for failure to withdraw or compete in an individual event if: 
1.   A The Referee excuses the athlete due to a medical exemption. 
2.   B It is determined by the Referee that failure to compete is caused by circumstances beyond the control of the athlete
 
NOTE 1: Alternates wishing to swim in an open lane in Finals must be standing at the starter's stand, ready to step on the blocks for his/her swim, when the swimmers are called to the blocks. Only the starter will call for the alternate, not the announcer.
 
NOTE 2: Finals scratches must be done individually; 'team' scratches will not be accepted. 
 
NOTE 3: All swimmers seeded in places 17-26 after the prelim session for each event who choose NOT to swim during finals are encouraged to scratch from finals in each event within 20 minutes after the swimmer’s last individual event during the prelim session.
