2021 LC Minnesota Last Chance Championships

New Hope Crystal Plymouth

Friday, July 16, 2021 — to — Sunday, July 18 2021



Meet Type

This is a 2 ½ day meet to provide a scored season ending championship for swimmers. 

NO CHAMP times allowed at this meet. All entry times must be verifiable NT entries are NOT allowed.

Advancing to State

 All swimmers who achieve new “CH” times are eligible to advance to State regardless of whether they are an individual event champion or not. 

Meet Fees

$10.25 per individual splash ($2.20 MNSI Splash Fee + $4.25 Splash Fee (Host) +

$3.80 Facility Splash Fee). $5.00 Team fee, $10 Championship gear fee.

With the adoption of Policy 239, attending athletes will no longer have to pay a separate facility fee as set by the different championship hosts. The Championship Facility Splash Fee is created by adding together all of the MAC & MRC facility costs and dividing by the total number of estimated splashes for all sites. This allows all athletes to pay the same individual splash fee regardless of their zoned site and each athlete pays for the splash fee only for those swims they have entered.

Proof of Times

A qualifying time may be achieved at USA Swimming sanctioned or approved or observed swim. These times are verified through the USA Swimming SWIMS database. 

A qualifying time may also be achieved at a bona fide meet sanctioned and conducted by a recognized organization (i.e. high school, college, YMCA) with verifiable and independently obtainable results published by the meet host or that organization. This proof of time must come from the actual published results of the meet. Each team or individual is responsible for providing their proof of times. 

A swimmer failing to achieve an event's qualifying time standard at the meet must provide proof of their qualifying time if it is not in the SWIMS database. If a time is not proven the entering party will incur a $100 fine. Fines are to be paid to the MN Swimming General Fund. All fines must be paid by the end of the meet. After the conclusion of the meet, swimmers/clubs have one week to prove their times and have their fine refunded. Failure of the team to pay the fine by the first meet of the following season’s entry deadline will result in the team’s charter being suspended until the fine is paid. 

When an event does not have a qualifying time standard but requires a verifiable entry time, the swimmer must provide proof of that time if it is not in the SWIMS database. If the entry time cannot be verified the swimmer will be withdrawn from the event and any times they may have achieved in that event at the meet will not be included in the official results
