Online entries are paid by credit card to ClubAssistant.com and your credit card will show a charge by "OHIOMASTERS.com" for this swim meet. Reminder for the NOTE above. Online registration must be used to enter this event.
DECK ENTRIES: All of the meet events will be pre-seeded to ensure timely functioning of the meet and so that swimmers can verify heat and lane assignments when they arrive at the pool and on Swim Phone prior to the meet. Deck entries will only be available for an event which has an empty lane as seeded when you arrive at the pool. Deck entries will be entered as no time entries and must be in hand at the Admin Desk as noted in the “DATE” section above. Swimmers, please scratch any events you do not intend to swim during check-in so that deck entrants may use open lanes.
AGE: The competitor's age on Dec. 31, 2023 will determine age group. Age groups are: 18-24, 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+ and so on. All relays can be swum with 4 women, 4 men, or mixed (exactly 2 women and 2 men).
AWARDS: Individual events: First-place medal or ribbon, and second thru seventh place ribbons are available. 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.
SEEDING: Heats will be formed by submitted times, regardless of age or sex, and will progress from fast to slow to "No Time".
RESULTS: Results will be posted on www.ohiomasters.com and Swim Phone usually within a day or two and on usms.org shortly after the meet.
800M/1500M: Swimmers may NOT enter Events 17 AND 18. Swimmers do not need to submit a split request for event 17 if entered in event 18. Enter the 800M Freestyle only if you do not plan to swim the 1500M Freestyle. Swimmers who swim the 1500M Freestyle will automatically receive an 800M split time assuming data supports the completion of 800M in the electronic timing system. Swimmers who sign up for both events will not be seeded to swim the 800M Free. Deck entries as discussed in this announcement to swim in empty lanes will be considered at the meet but not to swim both events.
ORDER OF EVENTS: All Individual Events are mixed men and women events. Please note: No individual event may be repeated on Sunday if it was swum on Saturday. Additionally, swimmers may NOT register for the same event on both days and choose when to swim after arrival at the meet.
All relays will be entered by relay card submission to the Admin Desk at least one hour before the event. Relays will be men’s (M), women’s (W) or mixed (X) with exactly 2 men and 2 women and will be swum together in a single heat indicated in the list of events below
We offer events on late Saturday afternoon to allow people to swim events that would otherwise be too close together on Sunday morning. A stroke and distance swum on Saturday may not be repeated the next day. Results of the Saturday events are combined and scored with the results on Sunday.
