3) *Special Note for High School Swimmers* – The 2018 MidStates All-Star Championships will require a waiver for any swimmer who is also a member of a high school (IHSAA) team. IHSAA regulations allow for a maximum of two waivers per high school season. Waivers are not permitted if the outside competition would require that a high school team member miss a scheduled high school competition. All 14 & under swimmers that are currently a member of an IHSAA team are responsible for checking with both their high school and club coaches regarding any competition conflicts, the use of a waiver for the MidStatesAll-Star Championship meet, and the process of securing a waiver.
