MEET DESCRIPTION: A relay meet where the emphasis is on fun. There is no requirement that relay team members come from the same club. This means you can swim with your college or high school teammates even if you belong to different USMS clubs now. Similarly, families can swim together on a relay team even if mom & dad swim on a different club than their children and/or grandchildren. Unattached swimmers and members of very small clubs can participate as well, they just need to put together a relay team.
RELAY TEAMS: Groups of four (4) people will form a team and swim up to 4 relay events together. Relay teams can be composed of members from one club, unattached members, or members from multiple clubs. Relays will be swum as male, female, or mixed (2 male + 2 female).
AGE GROUPS: The following age groups will be used: 72 to 119, 120 to 159, 160 to 199, and so forth in 40 year increments. The combined age of team members on December 31, 2019 will determine the age group.
SCORING: All events: 21-19-18-17-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. High point designation for male, female and mixed relay teams in each age group. Members of high point relay teams are entitled to brag about their designation until the next Pacific Masters relay meet. Club scores will also be tracked based on relay teams where all members are from the club.
ELIGIBILITY: All participants must be USMS members as of the time of the event.
ENTRIES: Only online entries will be accepted, and meet is limited to the first 75 teams to enter. Each relay team should choose one member (‘Team Captain’) to enter the meet, choose events, pay fees, and enter other members’ names, genders, & ages as of December 31, 2019. Entries will be open for Team Captains between July 15 and August 14. Captains will use the Individual Registration option and are are encouraged to enter early to reserve a spot. Other relay team members must supply membership information and accept waiver on the Club Assistant meet entry site between August 15 and August 23. URL for entries:
SPECIAL NOTE FOR TEAM CAPTAINS: Please be aware that for technical reasons not important to participants, the meet management software and entry system will treat relay teams as though they are individual competitors based on the team captain. Consequently, the payment recap and receipt screens for meet entry will show the team captain’s age and gender, not the team age and gender classification. A separate email will be sent to the team captain a few days after entry confirming the relay team’s age and gender classification. Also note that the use of ‘mixed’ on the event selection screen indicates one event number is used for all relays regardless of relay team’s gender classification.
ENTRY FEE: The entry fee for each team is $100. Teams wishing to have their times for conforming events (200 free and 200 medley relays) submitted for Top 10 consideration will need to make a written request at the meet. See note below on top 10 submissions.
ENTRY LIMITS: Each relay team may enter up to 4 events.
TIMING: A semi-automatic (button only) timing system will be used. Clubs will be assigned timing duties based on participation at meet. Lunch will be provided for any volunteer timers.
CHECK IN: Team captains must check in by 9:00 am on the day of the event. Team members may be changed up to that time. Any new members must sign waiver and show USMS membership card.

Note on Top 10 submissions: All relay team members must be from same USMS club to be eligible for top 10 submission. Any times submitted for Top 10 consideration will be submitted using standard short course yards rules and not the age group classifications used at the meet. The actual age of the youngest swimmer on the team will determine the age group for submission. For example, a team whose members are 27, 37, 47 and 57 would compete in the meet in the 160 to 199 age group but their times would be submitted for Top 10 consideration in the 25+ age group.
