W&M varsity swimmers will serve as lap counters for the 1,000 Free. **THE ENTRY LIMIT FOR THE 1,000 FREE HAS NOW BEEN REACHED. IF YOU WERE UNABLE TO SECURE A SPOT IN THE 1,000 FREE, YOU ARE WELCOME TO PLACE YOURSELF ON THE WAIT LIST UPON ARRIVING AT THE MEET**
100 Medley Relay: The 100 Medley Relay is NOT USMS-sanctioned and is therefore an unofficial race. Results for that race will, however, be included in the meet results e-mailed to meet registrants. Unattached swimmers and swimmers on smaller teams are ENCOURAGED to coordinate and assemble 100 Medley Relays and chase the pewter!
Rules: Current USMS rules for Masters swimming will apply. No one will swim alone in a heat. For individual events, Women and Men will swim separately if warranted by entry levels, but will otherwise be combined. For relays, Women, Men and Mixed relays will swim separately. Age groups will be combined.
Warm-up/Warm-down Procedures: Swimmers must enter the pool feet-first in a cautious manner. Diving shall be permitted only from the blocks in the designated sprint lanes during warm-up. There will be continuous warm-up/warm-down lanes available during the entirety of the meet; ABSOLUTELY NO DIVING WILL BE PERMITTED IN THESE LANES ONCE THE MEET HAS BEGUN. Instructions given by the designated Safety Marshall shall be obeyed at all times.
Psych Sheets, Meet Results and Heat Sheets: Psych Sheets/Meet Results will be posted at www.clubtribemasters.org and www.vaswim.org and will be sent by e-mail to meet registrants. Heat sheets will be e-mailed to meet participants by Friday, March 17, and will be posted at multiple locations on the pool deck.
Williamsburg Info and Lodging: Spring often visits Williamsburg early, and the Merchants Square Farmer’s Market will be in full swing. There are myriad hotel, motel and B&B options in all price ranges a short distance from the pool. Good resources for local lodging include: www.colonialwilliamsburg.com/stay and www.bandbwilliamsburg.com/.
