Swimmers turning 18 after the meet entry deadline and by July 10, 2015, must enter the meet by the meet entry deadline and register for USMS at the venue on July 10. 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 for the meet is determined as of Dec. 31, 2015, except for 18-year-olds, who must be 18 by July 10, 2015. Age groups for individual events: 18–24, 25–29, 30–34, 35–39 … (five year increments as high as necessary).

The aggregate age of the four relay team members determines the age group.
Ribbons will be awarded to swimmers for places 1st through 3rd. Sticker cards will be provided for all swimmers.
Fees are $4 per individual event or $10 per relay plus a $30 meet entry fee per swimmer. Fees must accompany the entry form/file and must be paid in U.S. dollars by check or money order. Do not mail cash. The entry (emailed) is not complete until the check has cleared the bank. If there are questions about an entrant’s check, full cash payment in U.S. dollars will be required before the entrant is allowed to swim. No refunds will be given for events not swum. The surcharge also applies to relay swimmers not entered in an individual event. Relay-only swimmers must submit emailed file/online entry with payment by the entry deadline. All fees should be payable to “University of Maryland.”
