USMS Sanction #184-S002

DATE  Saturday, Aug. 24, 2024.  Warm-ups start at 7:30 a.m.  Session 1, Events #1 and #2 (1500M freestyle and 800M freestyle) will start at 8:00 a.m. Positive Check-in is required prior to 7:30 a.m.  There will only be 2 heats of the 1500M (only 16 swimmers) and 3 heats of the 800M (only 24 swimmers).  Swimmers can swim in Event #1 or #2 but not both events.  Splits for the 800M touches of the 1500M will be reported for all swimmers (assuming proper automatic timing system operation and the swimmer finishes the event); therefore split requests are not required for the 800 split.  A half hour warm-up will begin after the 800M heats are completed.  Session 2 will start after the 30-minute warm-up following the distance events but not before 10:00 a.m. Deck entries will only be accepted for open lanes on the day of the meet.  This is a pre-seeded meet.

LOCATION   Avon Aquatic Center, 36265 Detroit Rd., Avon, Ohio 44011

POOL  The pool is a 10 lane, 50-meter outdoor pool with anti-turbulent lane lines and Colorado system automatic timing.  Only 8 lanes will be used for the competition.  During the meet lane 10 will be available for continuous warm-up/warm-down and lane 9 will remain empty as a buffer lane. The length of the competition course without a bulkhead is in compliance and on file with USMS in accordance with articles 105.1.7 and 106.2.1.  The primary timing system will be a Colorado 6 automatic timing system with touchpad finishes.  Times may be submitted for USMS records and USMS Top 10 times.  NOTE:  Safety of the swimmers is our primary concern.  Should inclement weather arise which would endanger swimmers, the meet will be delayed and/or rescheduled to Sunday, Aug. 25, 2024.  The decision of the meet director and officials is final.  Due to a number of predetermined costs, no refunds will be issued.

ELIGIBILITY  U.S. Masters Swimming 2024 rules will govern conduct of the meet.  Because of insurance regulations, all swimmers must be registered U.S. Masters Swimmers.  USMS registration is required for all participants. 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 a mailed entry.  Swimmers may swim no more than 6 individual events.  Only swimmers entered in the meet can participate in relays.  A “relay only” fee is an available entry option with reduced fee; see below under “ENTRY FEES”.

AGE  Age of competitors on December 31, 2024 determines a competitor’s age group.  Age groups are: 18-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, etc.  For relays, age group is determined by the sum total of all four swimmers ages on the relay team. Age groups for relays are:  76+, 100+, 120+, 160+, 200+, 240+, 280+, and so on.  All relays can be swum with 4 women, 4 men, or mixed (2 women and 2 men).  Each relay team must be composed of members of the same USMS club.  Unattached swimmers may not enter relays.

AWARDS  Individual events: First-place medal or ribbon, and second thru seventh place ribbons are available.  Relays: first, second, and third-place ribbons.

DECK ENTRIES Deck entries will not be available for the 1500M and 800M free events unless unless there are open lanes in the events once seeded (Events 1 and 2.)  All of the meet events will be pre-seeded before the meet to ensure timely functioning of the meet and so that swimmers can verify heat and lane assignments when they arrive at the pool.  Deck entries for Events 3 thru 20 will only be available for an event that has an empty lane as seeded when you arrive at the pool.  Deck entries will be entered as no time entries and must be submitted no later than 9:00 a.m.  Please scratch any events you do not intend to swim during check-in so that deck entrants may use open lanes.
