ELIGIBILITY: 2019 U.S. Masters Swimming rules will govern conduct of the meet. Because of insurance requirements, all swimmers must be registered U.S. Masters Swimmers. If not registered, swimmers can register online with USMS after the entry due date or at the meet (additional fee required), but swimmers must be USMS registered before swimming any events. The USMS Release of Liability must be signed electronically during online meet entry or must be signed on paper for mailed entries. Please send a copy of your USMS card with your mailed entry. Relay only swimmers need only complete the entry form. Relays are $10.00.
AGE GROUPS: Age of competitors on Dec. 31, 2019 will determine age group. Age groups are: 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, etc. For relays, the age group is determined by the sum of the ages of the swimmers: 76+, 120+, 160 +, 200+, 240+, 280+. All relays can be swum with 4 women, 4 men, or mixed (2 women and 2 men).
ENTRY LIMIT: Six individual events per day, plus relays. No limit to the number of relays entered. Swimmers with too many individual events per day will have excess events after the sixth event removed from their day's schedule.
AWARDS: Individual events: First-place medal, second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth-place ribbons. Relays: first, second, and third-place ribbons. For those who have too many medals and ribbons, we offer alternate awards – coupons – for first, second and third place in individual events and first place in relays.
