If two or more swimmers report the same cumulative time, a tie will be declared.
LOCATION: You may swim the Brute Squad in any 25-yard length pool.

INDIVIDUAL EVENTS: Men and women compete separately in age groups of five-year increments: 18-24, 25- 29, 30-34,...100+. The swimmer's age on the day he or she actually completes his or her Brute Squad events will determine his or her age group.
RELAY EVENTS: Relay events will be contested in 3 categories: 3 men, 3 women, or 2 mixed (2 men + 1 woman -or - 2 women + 1 man). Each relay member MUST also enter the individual event and be registered with the same club. Unattached swimmers are not permitted on relays. The youngest relay member's age shall determine the relay's age group. Age groups are 18+, 25+, 35+, … 95+.
