If you are not currently registered, you may register ONLINE (preferred!) at www.MOVYmasters.com or at www.usms.org. If you are not currently registered for USMS, I recommend waiting till November 1 and you will enjoy USMS member benefits through the end of 2018. Some benefits include a full year subscription to Swimmer magazine, access to meets and other fitness events throughout the year, etc. Online registration for 2018 USMS membership will also be available for Deck Entries at check-in till 1:30.
Rules: The current USMS rules will govern the conduct of the meet. Heats will be seeded, slowest to fastest. Please enter a goal time for accurate seeding. Entries with no times will be seeded in the slowest heats. Men and women of all ages will swim mixed. You might swim next to someone older or younger, man or woman, of approximately the same speed. Results will be broken out by age group and gender (i.e. Men/Women, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39 etc).
NOTE: Your age for this meet is your age on 11/11/2017.
Entry Fees: $10.00 meet fee, plus $5 per event. Full-time Student Discount = $10 total (Pay full meet fees as suggested in online meet entry, and then ask at the meet for your Student Refund of event fees you paid over $10.) All late and deck entries are $45.00 and must be entered at check in prior to 1:30. Credit cards are charged to "ClubAssistant.com Events" for this meet.
Limits: Swimmers may swim up to six events, plus relays. We have attempted to set the meet up this year to allow for plenty of breaks and good swims! Please don't enter Back to Back events, you will not have much rest. Relays are at the end to keep them from impacting your individual efforts and will be swum as entries and time allows.
*** You may swim both the 1000 or 1650. The 1650 will be limited to the first 16 swimmers to register online, the fastest 8 will swim together in either event # 10 or #15, and the next 8 will swim together. You can request event #10 or #15 and we will try to accommodate, but it is not guaranteed. (Distance events fill up fast).
Deadline: Register online by midnight Thursday, November 9th, 2017 for the early entry fee. Late and deck entries will be accepted 1:00-1:30 at the $45.00 rate.
