Entering this Meet Online Without a USMS Membership
If you want to enter this meet online prior to joining/renewing USMS membership, YES, you may do this.  Click on "Swimmer Registration" above, then click on "Online Meet Entry for Swimmers who are not member of the above organization" to proceed with your online meet entry. Then, make sure to join USMS or renew USMS membership after November 1 and prior to the start of the swim meet.

Order of Events: Pool opens at 9:00 am. Warm-up starts at 9:15 am. First heat of the 1500 begins at 9:45 am. There will be another 30 min. warm-up at 11:00 or at the completion of the 1500s. Event 2 will start no earlier than 11:30. Men and Women will swim together. Back-to-back events are not a good idea.

Entries: $6.00 per event for pre-entries. $10.00 surcharge for pool and equipment. Late entries and deck entries will be accepted to fill heats at $7 per event plus the surcharge. Swimmers may enter a total of 5 individual events and 5 relays.

Rules: Current USMS rules for Masters Swimming will apply. No one will swim alone in a heat. Swimmers will be seeded according to times; heats will run slowest to fastest; men and women will swim together. Swimmers will be expected to cooperate with the Safety Marshall who will monitor warm-up. No diving during warm-up except in designated lanes.

Awards: Medals for 1st through 3rd places in individual events for each age group. Ribbons for 4th through 6th places.
Ribbons for relays.

Social: Back by popular demand... Due to success of last year's social, we'll be returning to Commonwealth Brewing Company. Food to be provided. We have requested a larger room and help with parking. Carpooling from the pool will definitely help. More details in the September newsletter and at the pool at check-in.

Hotel Information: Check hotel rates online. Most of the oceanfront hotels have very good rates in November.

Relays! To provide an opportunity for swimmers to compete in SCM relays, we have scheduled relays – events 5,6,10,14 and 22. Relay entry forms will be available at Check-In.
