 Meet Format/Shootout Rules:

  • All events except the Shootout will be run as timed finals (one swim only).
  • The sum of the times achieved in the individual events will be used to determine who advances to the Shootout, with the fastest 8 swimmers (total time for all 5 individual events) advancing from prelim rounds to the Shootout in each age group and gender. In the event of a DQ, the swum time will still be eligible for consideration into the Shootout, but with a 10 second penalty added in, so long as the stroke swum was the correct stroke for that event.
  • The Shootout will be run with pairs of swimmers competing against each other 1 on 1 in elimination rounds. The final configuration of the shootout will be determined after the entries have been finalized.
  • 8 & Under swimmers will NOT participate in the Shootout, but medals will be awarded to the 2 lowest cumulative time achievers for both 8 & Under boys and girls.
  • 9 & Over participants will swim 25 yard races in the Shootout. For each age group, the finals Shootout will immediately follow the relays, alternating gender. All individual events will start from the starting block side of the pool. Touch pads are installed at the turn end of the pool for electronic finishes for the 25-yard events

Parents: Do not leave immediately after the prelim session is done. Stay and see the results to make sure your swimmer has not qualified for the Shootout. Unfortunately, every year swimmers leave early and miss the Shootout portion of the competition.  Click Here for the Meet Timeline

 

Have Fun!
