If your workout group/club is not listed or is NOT registered, register the Workout Group/Club before the April 7 deadline.

  • There will be three group categories—Small, Medium, & Large—based upon the number of swimmers entered in the meet for each workout group/club.  There will be a meeting of workout group/club representatives on Saturday, April 27, 2024 at 8:45 am to place the teams into these three categories by vote.  
  • Cumulative team scoring will be compiled and banner awards given to the first three teams placing in all three categories.
