The Cleveland State University Busbey Natatorium, 2451 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, OH, was designed by one of our members, Peter van Dijk, and is recognized as one of the fastest pools in the country. We are fortunate to be able to use this pool for our meet thanks to the generous cooperation of John C. Parry, Director of Athletics at CSU, and Paul Graham, head swim coach. The pool is a 9 lane, 50 meter pool, equipped with automatic timing and digital read-out board. The lanes are 8 feet wide with depths between 12 to 16-1/2 feet deep and has antiturbulent lane lines. One lane will be reserved for warm-up and warm-down during the meet. 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 107.2.1.
To reach Busbey Natatorium, take I-90 to downtown Cleveland and exit at Chester Avenue. The Natatorium is located off this exit, just west of I-90. It is the large brick building between Chester and Euclid Avenues. Parking will be ample on the weekend in the many University parking lots and free street parking.
2015 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, 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. Limit 5 individual events per day. Only swimmers entered in the meet can participate in relays.
Age of competitors on December 31, 2015 will determine age group. Age groups are: 18-24, 25-29, 30-34, etc. For relays, the age group is determined by the sum of the ages of the swimmers: 72-99, 100-119, 120-159, 160-199, 200, 239, 240-279, 280-319, etc. Only registered clubs can enter relays. Relay only swimmers need only complete the entry form.
Individual events: first-place medal, second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth-place ribbons. Relays: first 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.
Heats will be formed by submitted times, regardless of age or sex, and progress from fast to slow to "No Time" and deck entries. Relays are entered and seeded on deck only.
