USAS Virtual Meets Instructions

USA SWIMMING VIRTUAL MEETS

Virtual meets allow club teams to compete against each other but swim locally within their own LSC or different LSCs.

  1. Competition must be held as a single meet but may have multiple sessions.
  2. A team may swim a virtual meet as an inter-squad competition at different sites, or USA Swimming club teams may compete against each other.
  3. For multiple club team competitions, it is recommended that a host team be determined. Responsibilities of the host team include:
    1. Development of meet announcement
    2. Order of events
    3. Fee structure if applicable
    4. Scoring and awards
    5. Application for sanction
    6. Pre-meet registration recon submission according to LSC policy

NOTE: If clubs competing are in different LSCs, each club must apply for a sanction in its own LSC and submit any fees or pre-meet recons according to LSC policy.

  1. USA Swimming technical rules shall apply, to include Timing (102.24 in the USA Swimming Rulebook). Officials at each site shall conform to 102.10 In the Rulebook. (Do we want to use 102.10.4 for dual meets?)
  2. Swimmers may swim not more than three (3) events per day in a preliminaries and finals meet, or no more than six (6) events each day in a timed final meet, according to 102.2.2. and 3 in the Rulebook.
  3. Meet Set-up Guidelines
    1. Setup meets for all locations (meet names and dates do not have to be the same for each database); recommend that a meet is duplicated by one person and backups sent to each site including just that sites’ events
      1. Number the events for master meet 1 to xx
      2. Number the events for site
        1. For example, site A, 101 to xxx; site B, 201 to xxx; site C, 301 to xxx, as applicable
        2. Master database must have each of the sites events for the import; imports are completed based on event number which is why master database must include each sites’ event numbers
      3. Use the same event info for age group, distance, and stroke for events you want to combine
        1. Event 1, 10U, 50 free
        2. Event 101, 10U, 50 free
        3. Event 201, 10U, 50 free
