Parking: Parking is available in the Terrapin Trail Garage for the swim meet. The garage is located behind the Rec Center and across a foot bridge. The address of the garage is Terrapin Trial, College Park MD 20742. To get to the pool from the garage, cross the foot bridge and turn right at the back of the Rec Center. Walk along the back of the building, turn left at the end of the building and enter the side door to the right of the roll up door. Once inside the door, continue to the right through the double doors and turn left. 

Eligibility: Participants must be registered Masters Swimmers and at least 18 years of age as of 9 June, 2018. Swimmers turning 18 after the meet entry deadline and by 16 June, 2018, must enter the meet by the meet entry deadline and register for USMS at the venue on 9 June. If a swimmer wishes to affiliate with a Masters club, the club and swimmer must both be registered with the same Local Masters Swimming Committee (LMSC). If there are questions about affiliation, the swimmer will be entered with the affiliation “UC.” International entries must include a copy of the swimmer’s Masters Swimming registration card and fees in U.S. dollars.

Age Groups: Age for the meet is determined as of 31 Dec, 2018, except for 18-year-olds, who must be 18 by 9 June, 2018. Age groups for individual events: 18–24, 25–29, 30–34, 35–39 … (five year increments as high as necessary). Relay events: 72–99, 100–119, 120–159, 160– 199, 200–239, 240–279, 280–319, 320–359, 360–399 … (40-year increments as high as necessary). The aggregate age of the four relay team members determines the age group.

Awards: Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, male and female in each age group.

Warm up Procedures: Swimmers must enter the pool feet first in a cautious and controlled manner. No diving or backstroke starts will be allowed, except in designated sprint lanes. One or two lanes shall be designated as one-way sprint lanes during the pre-meet warm-up sessions in the competition pools only. Any swimmer who acts in an unsportsmanlike or unsafe manner within the swimming venue may be considered for appropriate action or penalty by the referee (rule 102.13.3). Pull buoys, kickboards, fins, hand paddles, and snorkels are not allowed in the competition or warm-up pools.

Entries: Online entries will be accepted via Club Assistant, and must be completed by 5 June, 2018. Competitors requiring paper entry forms should contact the meet director no later than 15 May, 2018. Deck entries will only be accepted for events where there are empty lanes available. Deck entries from swimmers not already entered in the meet will cost $10 paid in cash at the time of entry.

Seeding: Swimmers will be seeded slowest to fastest, based on age and gender. Events 400m or longer, may be seeded and swum as mixed gender events.

Positive Check-in: All events 400 meters or longer will require positive check in. Positive check in closes for events 400 meters or above 10 minutes before the conclusion of warm ups each session. Heat sheets will be posted at the start and turn ends of the competition pool once positive check-in closes.

Top 10 & Record times: 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. 

Seating on deck: Bleacher seating will be available for all swimmers. Please refrain from using chairs on the pool deck if possible. 

Volunteers: Timers are very important to the success of the meet, individuals available to time, should indicate that on the online sign up. Refreshments will be provided for timers, and persons who work an entire session, will receive a gift at the conclusion of the session. Interested volunteers should complete this form to express their interest.
