Swimmers must be a registered swimmer of a participating swim team, having participated with this team only during the course of the summer season.  All swimmers must swim their ages on June 15, 2018.  No one will be allowed to swim up in age.  A swimmer may not participate with a USS club after December 1 2017 .  Members of a scholastic swim team may continue to train with a USS team per County rules

Current USS rules will govern strokes, turns, start, finishes, etc.
Teams are permitted unlimited individual entries per event.
Each participant is limited to a maximum of 4 (four) individual events.
All events are timed finals.

Team entries are to be submitted using the export file from the Team Manager to Amy Ross at amyross6@yahoo.com  by 5:00 pm on Sunday, June 17, 2018.

Along with Entries the following documents are required:

  • Certificate of Additionally Insured, including endorsements – forward to Pleasant Hill Recreation & Park District with deposit
  • Entry Fees
  • Volunteer Work Assignments
  • Coaches Information

Mixed Distance Free times must be submitted on the REGULAR freestyle time.  For example, if a child has a freestyle time of 28.60 in their regular Free event, then you will need to custom enter that time whether they are swimming a half distance or a double distance free event.  It is very important that you custom enter each freestyle time properly or the entries will need to be re-submitted.  IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT MIXED DISTANCE TIME SUBMISSIONS PLEASE CONTACT AMY ROSS at amyross6@yahoo.com.

Entry Changes:
No changes beyond June 17 entry deadline.


Coaches can scratch swimmers from the meet each morning, 7:15 – 8:45 at the desk.  

Once FINAL heat sheets have been delivered to the Referee NO changes can be made.  All swimmers must properly check in with the Clerk in order to swim. If a swimmer enters the clerk area and sits down without checking in they will not appear on the Referee sheet and will not be able to swim.   Please make every effort to inform the Clerk when swimmers scratch so we do not hold up the meet waiting for them to check in.

The information can be submitted to the Pleasant Hill Recreation & Park District Administration Office either through the mail or hand delivered by 5:00 on Friday, June 9, 2017.  Mailed documentation must be received in the office by June 9 as well, pleased send mail early enough to be delivered by Friday.
