Scratching from Preliminary
& Timed Final Events:
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.
A- Any swimmer who competes in a
preliminary heat and qualifies as one of the original sixteen (16)
finalists must swim in that event’s championship final; or
must notify the administrative referee that he/she intends to
scratch from that final’s event within thirty (30) minutes of
the announcement of the qualifiers.
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
