DATE: Wednesday, September 1, 2021 to Thursday, September 30, 2021. All events must be swum on or between these dates.

Deadline for entries: October 10, 2021 at 11:59 PM PST. No paper entries accepted - online entries only.
Your online entry is not complete until you have received a confirmation of your entry by email. If you do not receive this confirmation following your entry, please contact the Meet Director.
TIMING: A pace clock or stopwatch may be used for timing purposes. If you use a pace clock add “.99” to your documented time. For a time submitted with no tenths or hundredths, .99 second shall be added to the time submitted. The Meet Director reserves the right to remove any clearly incorrect results.


  • You may swim the event multiple times within the date range listed and enter your fastest time.
  • In-water starts are allowed but no time adjustments can be made.
  • Having a Starter and Timer to collect times is recommended but not required for event entry.
  • 2020 USMS Rules govern these events, including USMS Rule 102.12.1 regarding swimwear. 
  • Age on December 31, 2021 determines age group for this ePostal and the entire series.
  • Drafting, flotation, and propulsive devices (pull buoys, fins, paddles, snorkels, wet suits, etc.) are not permitted.
  • No more than two swimmers should share a lane. If a lane is shared, each swimmer must stay on his or her side of the lane during the entire race (i.e. no circle swimming).
  • Participants must follow their facility guidelines for physical distancing and COVID-19 precautions during the event.  For your reference, the CDC guidelines for aquatic venues can be found here:
  • Swimmers participate at their own risk.
