Eligibility of times for USMS Top 10 and records will be contingent on verification of bulkhead placement.

WARMUPS:  Except for lanes designated for one-way starts, you must enter the warmup lanes FEET FIRST, preferably from a seated position on the pool deck (no diving from the side).  No equipment (paddles, snorkels, fins, pull buoys, etc.) is allowed during warmups.

RELAYS:  See separate section below for online team relay entry instructions.  As always, there is no extra charge for relays!  Only team members registered for the meet may participate. NOTE when assembling your relays that the groups of Men’s, Women’s, and Mixed relays may be swum in combined heats.

  The Selby Aquatic Center does not allow animals except for trained service animals.  Please contact the meet director prior to the meet for more information.

NATIONAL AND WORLD RECORDS:  If you think you might set a national or world record at the meet, you are responsible for (a) notifying the meet referee in advance that you might set a record and (b) ensuring that there are at least two timers with stopwatches in your lane.  It is OK to recruit fellow swimmers or friends to serve as your extra timers.

BREAKS in the meet are noted in the Order of Events below.   

Relays:  As always, relays are FREE.  ONLINE relay team entry is preferred.  Only team members registered for the meet may participate. Mixed relays consist of two women and two men. Men's and Women's relay events may be combined. NOTE that there will be no break before the Mixed relays so it is not advised for a swimmer to enter both a single-gender plus a Mixed relay in the same group.  

Team Relay Entry Procedure (for Relay Captains):  One person from each club should act as the Relay Captain and enter all of the team's relays.  Anyone who is a USMS-registered member of that club may serve as the Relay Captain.  
  1. Click the "Club Entry Rosters" link above to view the list of your swimmers entered in the meet. You can use this data to assemble your relays.
  2. On November 1, after Team Relay Entry has opened, click the button above to register your relays. You'll first go through the USMS member verification page and then be asked for your address, email, etc.
  3. Once you get through the biographical pages, you'll see a list of relays.  Click on a relay event to enter your swimmers into that event.
  4. You'll be presented with a form that allows you to select your swimmers to fill the four relay spots.
  5. You don't have to designate a relay as "A," "B," etc.  The software will automatically do that for you.
  6. Enter an estimated seed time for the relay (guessing is fine).
  7. Select the four swimmers for that relay, IN THE ORDER THEY WILL SWIM.
  8. Continue on for each relay event and relay team. 
  9. You'll get to a page that allows you to review the relays before you submit.
  10. You'll then see a final page where you can click a final Submit button.  There is no charge for relays so you will not be asked for a credit card.
  11. CHANGES to relays will be allowed at the meet. Swimmers may change the names (or swim order) on the relay cards before they swim the event.  Go ahead and assemble and submit as many relays as you wish; it's better to submit them and then scratch at the meet than to not have entered them at all.
