Welcome to the 2017 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 entry deadline has been extended to Monday April 3. Competitors may enter up to 5 individual events per day, plus relays.  The meet is open to all Masters Swimmers holding a valid 2017 USMS registration card.  Your membership to USMS will be verified in online meet entry. Age is determined by a swimmer’s age on April 9, 2017. 2017 USMS rules and regulations apply.

FEES:
Meet surcharge (required) $25. Individual event fee $5 each. Online entries are paid by credit card to "ClubAssistant.com Events".
