This is a Timed Finals meet. All races will be swum in a 25-yard course. The 1000 Freestyle will be seeded fastest to slowest without regard to age or gender. All other events will be seeded slowest to fastest without regard to age. Results will be tabulated by gender and age group, as defined by USMS. 

A swimmer may enter up to 4 individual events per day, exclusive of relays.  Short Course Yards (25 yds) entry times should be submitted.  No Time (NT) entries will be seeded as slowest times; please avoid using NT times whenever possible. There are anticipated short breaks after Events 1, 10, 18, 24, 32, and 38, but they will be dependent upon the number of entries and length of the meet and adjusted at the discretion of the meet director. Meet entries are due by 11:59pm Central Time on Monday, October 17th, 2022.

Online entries through Club Assistant will be used for this meet, allowing each swimmer to submit entry times, use a secure site for payment of fees, sign the standard USMS waiver electronically, and have their USMS membership verified through the system. Swimmers will also be able to access the USMS database of times associated with their USMS registration number to help determine appropriate seed times. The credit card statement will show a charge from "ENSWORTHAQUATICS.COM." All entry fees are nonrefundable.

Paper entries will be accepted using the form in this meet invitation, but must be received by Monday, October 17th, 2022, or incur a late fee of $15.   Checks should be made payable to The Ensworth School, and mailed to: Ensworth Aquatics Masters, Attn: 2022 ENSW SCY Ghoul in the Pool Invitational, 7401 Highway 100, Nashville, TN 37221. A signed waiver and copy of the current USMS membership card must be included.

The meet entry fee will be $75 for both days of competition, and $40 if participating only one of the days.  Entries submitted after the deadline, including on-deck entries, will incur an additional $15 fee. Note that late entries will be accepted based on lane space availability at the discretion of the meet director.  As per USMS Short Course Yards Rules, the age submitted for meet entries is based on the swimmer’s age as of 10/23/22, and age groups for relays are determined by the age group of the youngest swimmer on that relay team. Relay fees are $10 per relay entry, to be paid at the meet upon submission of the relay entries. 

Positive check-in by the start of warm-ups on their designated day is required for the 1000 FR, 500 FR, and 400 IM. 
Relay entries will be due at the start of the meet on their designated days (by 2pm on Saturday and 10am on Sunday). Paper relay cards will be available to pick up at the check-in desk.
