CONCESSIONS: Snacks available during races.


  • The Start: The start will be in the water with all swimmers behind a start rope. The rope is in the water. After the starting signal, the rope is lifted so the swimmers pass under the rope.
  • Race Countdown: a 1-minute and 30-second warning will be given by the Starter to indicate that the swimmers should enter the pool and get into position behind the start rope. A final countdown will begin at 10 seconds.
  • Turn Buoys: The races are conducted in the counter-clockwise direction. The swimmers must keep all four buoys off of their left shoulder around each turn.
  • The Bell Lap: As the first swimmer starts the last lap, an official will ring a bell indicating that one lap remains.
  • The Finish: The finish is in the water by the swimmers touching the wall. The order of finish is determined by the officials. Finishing swimmers must exit the pool immediately to make room for swimmers finishing behind them.
  • Disqualifications: Swimmers can be disqualified for making intentional contact, obstruction or interference with another swimmer. Unsportsmanlike conduct is judged by the officials who are located at the turn buoys and by the Referee. A warning may be given by a whistle. At the first rule infraction, the official will show a yellow card to the swimmer. For the second infraction swimmers are shown a red card and will be required to immediately leave the pool.
