There is a large lot adjacent to the MTSU Campus Recreation Center accessible from Rutherford Blvd. and MTSU Blvd., next to the softball fields.

Pool: 10 lanes, 25 yards, non-turbulent dividers. Pool depth is 5-13 ft. Daktronics timing system. 8 lanes, (3-10) will be used for competition. Lanes 1 & 2 shall be reserved throughout the meet for continuous warm-up and cool-down. No smoking is permitted in the pool or elsewhere in the MTSU Campus Recreation Center. Some starting blocks are located in lanes with the depth of 5 ft. Swimmers not trained to enter shallow water will be required to sign a waiver.

Schedule & Seeding: Event 1, the 500 freestyle will begin Saturday, March 16, at 9:30 a.m., C.S.T. Warm-up begins at 8:00 a.m. Event 2 will begin no earlier than 10:30 a.m. C.S.T. The meet will probably conclude around 3:00 p.m. Each event will be seeded, men and women together, in timed finals with the slowest heats first. Swimmers’ entries with no seed time indicated (00:00.00), will be seeded in slower heats. The five heats of the 500 free will be pre-seeded as soon as the heats are filled.

Eligibility & USMS cards: Each entrant may swim in a maximum of five (5) individual events and two relays.
All participants must be registered with United States Masters Swimming, Inc., before the meet starts at 9:30 a.m. Register online for this meet where your 2013 USMS membership will be instantly verified. No need to mail us a copy of your USMS card if you register online for this meet. Please bring your USMS card with you on meet day. If you are entering this meet by paper, you must supply a copy of your 2013 USMS card with your meet entry and you must bring your card with you on meet day.

Age: The age reported on your entry form must reflect your actual age as registered with
USMS. A swimmer’s age on March 16, 2013, determines his/her age for the meet.
NOTE: Swimmers 18-24 years old competing in U.S.M.S meet may jeopardize their
N.C.A.A. eligibility.

500 Freestyle: The 500 freestyle will be limited to five heats. Lanes in the 500 free will be assigned to the first 30 entries received. After the first 30, entrants in the 500 will be assigned to a waiting list in the order in which their entries are received. The waiting list will be used on the morning of the meet to fill empty lanes due to scratches and no-shows. If you are entering the 500 free, we encourage you to indicate an optional sixth event on the entry form in case you are shut out of the 500 free. If you do, please flag which event is your optional one.

Relays: Relay teams may be Men, Women, or Mixed, but teams of all types will be seeded together in the same heats and then scored separately. Therefore, no swimmer may swim both a mixed-and a same-sex team in the same event. All relays will be deck
entered. Official relay cards may be obtained at the meet from the Clerk of Course.
For seeding, cards for the 200 Medley relay should be turned into the computer desk

No hand paddles will be permitted in the warm-up or warm-down lanes.

Two lanes will be reserved throughout the meet for continuous warm-up and warm-down.
In these lanes, there will be no standing on the bottom of the pool or leaning on the lane
rope, while the meet is in progress.

Awards: A trophy will be awarded for the highest combined (men plus women) score. The Team trophy will be awarded to the highest-scoring club. Event ribbons will be awarded for individual swimmers and relays in first through fifth places. Points are awarded 7-5-4-3-2-1 for individual events and 14-10-8-6-4-2 for relays.
