Please, no phone calls.)

All events will be seeded from slow to fast.  Those swimming the 1500 M free will need to supply their own counter person and timer.

Split Requests:  The 800 M Free split will be submitted for every swimmer completing the 1500 M free and recording an electronic split at the 800 M mark.  Other electronic splits may be requested in writing by the swimmer per USMS rules noted on the USMS split notification form.  Split requests must be submitted to the Meet Referee PRIOR TO the swim.

Deadline: Meet entries must be completed online by 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, July 2, 2024. No late entries are accepted.

Scoring & Awards: Individual High Point awards for 1st place in all age groups for those who swim at least 6 individual events.  Scoring 9-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 for individuals.

Warmups:  Except for lanes designated for one-way starts, you must enter the warmup lanes feet first (no diving from the side).  No equipment (paddles, snorkels, fins, pull buoys, etc.) is allowed during warmups.  On Sunday, there will be no break after the 400 M free; we will go right into the next event.  This is because the small pool will be open and available for warmup on Sunday morning.

Heat sheet:  Will be available online at www.midnightsports.com by mid-week prior to the meet. Please print before you arrive.  Heat sheets will be posted in designated areas for swimmers.
