Sanctioned by North Carolina LMSC for USMS, Inc.

Meet Referee: Charlotte Swim Masters Inc.
Meet Referee: Marty Fehr

Facility: Huntersville Family Fitness & Aquatics (hffa.com). 11725 Verhoeff Drive, Huntersville NC 28078. (704) 766-2222.  The pool is 50 meters by 25 yards, with a bulkhead dividing the competition area into an 8 lane 25 yd course. Continuous warm up/down lanes available. Parking is on the lower side of the facility plus the rear of the facility.

DIRECTIONS: Exit off I-77 at Exit 23 (Huntersville / Gilead Road) into Huntersville. Go 1/10th of a mile and turn right onto US 21 South. Go 1.5 miles and you will see about a dozen 4’high 3” wide round yellow rubber posts in a row on the center line of the road – go past those about 50 meters and turn left onto Verhoeff Drive. The swim facility is about 500 meters on the left side of Verhoeff. Turn into the near side parking lot, which if full, continue on behind the building to park.
We are NOT allowed to park on the far side of the building; that area is for members.
The length of the competition course is in compliance and on file with USMS, but as a bulkhead course, pool measurements must be made prior to and after all sessions. Therefore eligibility of times for USMS Top 10 and records will be contingent on verification of the required distances.

Rules: Swimmers must be registered with USMS for 2016. USMS One Day Registration will not be allowed. USMS rules govern the meet. Swimmers are limited to 5 individual events per day. When warming up, you must enter the pool feet first except in sprint lanes. No paddles or kickboards are allowed.

Deadline: Online entries only by 11:59pm EST Sunday February 28, 2016. No paper entries will be accepted and no deck entries will be accepted at the meet. Relay entries will be accepted at the meet by filling out relay cards and turning them in to the computer operator during the warmup session.

Fee: $45.00 flat fee which includes a full size USMS umbrella for each entrant. No charge for relays. There will be no refunds unless the meet is cancelled, in which case $15.00 of the fee paid will be retained and $30.00 will be refunded. If inclement weather occurs, the staff at HFFA will determine by 2:00pm Friday March 4 if the center will or will not open the following morning. If it opens, the meet will be held.  

Scoring & Awards: Individual events will be scored 9-7-6-5-4-3-2-1; relays doubled. No individual high point awards will be given, but a box of ribbons will be available until they run out. A slick paper plaque for peel-off stickers showing your place and time for each event you swim be available to all entrants. Team awards will be given for places 1-3 for in-state teams and places 1-3 for out-of-state teams. 

Seeding: All events will be seeded by sex and time except the following events which will be seeded by time only: 1,650, 1,000, 400 IM and 500 free. In order to be seeded in each of these events, you must re-confirm at the clerk of course that you will swim. All events will be seeded from slow to fast, except the 500 free, which will be seeded fast to slow. The Meet Director reserves the right to combine sexes in any other events.
