You must enter your times for all three distances in the event and the combined time will be the winner for each stroke, for each age group. Enter just butterfly? Sure! Enter just distance freestyle? Of course! Enter everything because you’re so versatile? Absolutely!LOCATION: Events may be swum in any 25-yard or 25-meter length pool but meter-times must be converted into short-course yards.
