****** ENTRIES CLOSED ******
Note from Doug Wharam, Entry Chair: "I have some bad news to share. Metro Nashville Parks and Rec, who we rent our facility from, has revoked our approval for the meet. Unfortunately, COVID is wreaking havoc on their processes and this is one of the many unfortunate side effects we are experiencing." Refunds are planned for those who have entered. Entrants will be contacted.
RULES: 2021 USMS Rules and Southeastern LMSC Safety guidelines and warm-up procedures will govern. Safety guidelines specify feet-first entry during warm-ups, except for designated sprint lanes. All events will be timed finals.

FACILITY: The competitive pool at the Sportsplex is 25 yards long with 8 lanes, and the pool depth is a minimum of 7 feet. The pool is equipped with Colorado Timing. Warm-up/warm- down lanes will be available throughout the meet in an adjacent 25-yard pool. The length of the competition course is in compliance and on file with USMS in accordance with articles 105.1.7 and 107.2.1, but as a bulkhead course, is subject to length confirmation. Eligibility of times for USMS Top 10 and Records will be contingent on verification of bulkhead placement.
ELIGIBILITY: All swimmers must be registered with United States Masters Swimming. We encourage swimmers to use the online entry system, which streamlines checking USMS registrations, putting your entries into the meet database, and entry payments. If you are not yet registered with USMS, you will be able to do so as the first step of your meet entry process. Swimmers using the online entry system get a 10% discount on entry fees. USMS is limiting 50 swimmers to enter the meet. However, if guidelines change, adjustments will be made on the Club Assistant entry page.
