Welcome to the 2014 Colonies Zone Short Course Yards Championship meet. The swimming facility will be configured as two separate 8-lane competition courses, women in one course and men in the other, with both courses displayed on the scoreboard. The all deep-water lanes, overflow gutters and non-turbulent lane lines should allow for some very fast swimming! A separate 6-lane 25-yard pool will be available for continuous warm-up/cool-down throughout the meet.

ENTRIES: Online entries are preferred. Online entry deadline is Friday March 28. Paper entries must be postmarked by Friday March 21. Competitors may enter up to 5 individual events per day, plus relays. The meet is open to all Masters Swimmers holding a valid 2014 USMS registration card. Your membership to USMS will be verified in online meet entry.  For paper/mailed entry,  copy of your USMS card must accompany your entry! Age is determined by a swimmer’s age on April 6, 2014. 2014 USMS rules and regulations apply.

FEES: Meet surcharge (required) $25.00. Individual Event Fee $5 each. Online entries are paid by credit card to "ClubAssistant.com Events".

SEEDING: Events will be seeded slowest to fastest. Women will swim in the shallow end on Saturday and the deep end on Sunday. Men will swim in the deep end on Saturday and the shallow end on Sunday. The 1000 and 1650 free will be seeded fastest to slowest, men and women combined.

RELAYS: Relay Deck Entries will be accepted BEFORE 10am Saturday and Sunday, or Friday night, or they may be mailed in with your meet entry. Relay Entry Forms are available at www.patriotmasters.org/ColoniesZone2014.htm.


DISTANCE EVENTS: You must check in Friday BEFORE 3:30pm for the 1000/1650 or you will be scratched.  Choose either the 1000 free or the 1650, not both. The 1000 is limited to the first 120 entries received and will be swum in the shallow end. The 1650 is limited to the first 80 entries received and will be swum in the deep end. Please ask a friend to count for you in the distance freestyle races. Swimmers entering the 1000 free and 1650 free must enter using a provable time. It can be done in practice and signed off by a coach or come from the USMS meet results database.

PSYCH SHEETS: Psych sheets and rosters will be available on our website  www.patriotmasters.org/ColoniesZone2014.htm before the meet.

AWARDS: Medals will be awarded to the first three places in each age group, and to each member of a winning relay. Special Championship awards to the highest scoring team in three divisions: Large, Medium and Small Team. Individual events are scored 9-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, relays 18-14-12-10-8-6-4-2.

RESULTS: Available online at www.patriotmasters.org/ColoniesZone2014.htm and www.colonieszone.org. Swimmers who are registered with USA-Swimming and want their times entered into the USA-Swimming SWIMS database should contact the meet director before the meet. In the shallow end, the length of the competition course is in compliance and on file with USMS in accordance with articles 105.1.7 and 107.2.1, but as a bulkhead course, is subject to length confirmation. Eligibility of times for USMS Top 10 and Records will be contingent on verification of bulkhead placement.
