Eligibility: The Standard Masters age groups will be used (18-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, etc). For meets held in metric pools, your age is your age on December 31, 2013. All swimmers must be registered with USMS. You may register online at www.usms.org/reg/.
Entries: $6 per individual event, $10 per relay team, $30 surcharge for pool and equipment. You may enter up to five individual events per day. Online entry is strongly encouraged! Online entry fees are charged to your credit card (Visa or MasterCard only) by "ClubAssistant.com Events."
Entry Deadline: The deadline for online entries is June 13. Paper entries must be received by June 10 and must be accompanied by a copy of your USMS membership card. Late entries will not be accepted. Entries in the 1500 meter freestyle will be limited to the first 80 entries. "NT" (no time) entries are not allowed for the 1500. Entries for Saturday relays will be due at 2pm on Saturday; entries for Sunday relays will be due by the end of the meet on Saturday. Relay entry forms will be available at the meet.
Rules: Current USMS rules for Masters Swimming will apply. No one will swim alone in a heat. Swimmers will be seeded according to entry time and heats will run slowest to fastest. Men and women will swim in separate heats except as noted. Positive check-in is required for the 1500 free, the 400 free, and the 400 IM: you must check in by 7:45 am on Saturday (for the 1500) or 8:45 am on Sunday (for the 400s) in order to swim these events. These distance events will be deck-seeded, and men and women will be seeded together slowest to fastest. Relays will also be deck-seeded. The pool has been measured and all official times will be eligible for Top 10 consideration. For participants in the 1500 free, the 800 free split will be automatically submitted for Top 10 consideration.
Warm-Up: The competition pool will be available for two one-hour warm-ups on Saturday: 7:00 am for the 1500 Free and at 12:00 pm or when the AM session ends (whichever is later) for the other events. Warm-up in the competition pool will begin at 8:00 am on Sunday. Swimmers will be expected to cooperate with the Safety Marshal, who will monitor warm-up. There will be no diving during warm-up except in designated lanes. The 25-yd pool will be available for warm-up during the competition.
Awards: Medals for 1st through 3rd places in each event for each age group. Team championship trophies will be provided to the top-scoring club in Large, Medium, and Small team categories.
Social: There will be a catered social immediately following the meet on the first day. Only a limited number of tickets will be available at the meet, so purchase tickets during online registration ($10 apiece) to reserve a spot.
Other items available for purchase at the meet: championship t-shirts, swim shop merchandise, massages.
