St. Charles County Summer Swim League Rules

Our team is a member of the St. Charles County Summer Swim League, and is governed by the rules set by the League.  Full information on those rules can be found on their website.

These are a few important League rules to remember:

  • DQ Disputes:  
    • Rule 2.G.iii.f:  The only areas of dispute with the stroke judges are regarding interpretation of the rules, or assigning a disqualification to the wrong lane. Disputes should not involve what the stroke judge did or did not see, only how they applied the rule. Disputes or questions must be handled by the 
    • Rule 2.G.iii.g:  Video cannot be used to argue a call

  • Rule 2.M.i Ribbons will be awarded to all swimmers for 1st through 6th place.
  • Rule 2.M.iv: When two swimmers in an event have duplicate official times, both will be awarded the same points and the same place ribbons, but no ribbons or points will be awarded for the next place in sequence. (Example: Two swimmers share 1st place, then no second place points or ribbons are awarded)  
  • Rule 2.M.vi:  The only people allowed to approach the awards table are the league representatives and the meet director for that meet
    • ​This table (also called the data/scoring/computer table) is not to be approached by anyone except for the volunteers working that job, league reps, or meet director(s).  Parents and swimmers should not approach with questions or looking for times/scores.  Any questions or concerns should be directed to a board member, coach or league rep of our team.
  • Meet End Times:
    • Rule 2.O.i:  No events may be started after 11:30pm, unless agreed upon by the league representatives from both teams
      • Any events underway at 11:30 pm may be completed. The scores at the time the meet is stopped, included those for the event underway at the time of the meet cessation, will be considered the official meet score

Swim Meet Order of Events
