Parking: Ample parking is available in the Batten parking lot.  Please let the Security Gate know you are here for the swim meet and they will direct you where to park.

Directions: From I-64, take exit 282, Rte 13/Northampton Blvd/Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, and go north on Northampton Blvd.  Turn right onto Wesleyan Drive.  At the second light, turn right into Virginia Wesleyan University.  After the Security Gate, turn left onto Smith Drive and take the third right (before the traffic circle) into the Batten parking lot.  Enter the main doors to the Jane P Batten Student Center (by the painted Marlin on the sidewalk) and follow the hallway down to the rock wall.  Turn right at the rock wall, walk past the racquetball courts and into the fitness center.  The door to the pool will be on your right.  Signage will be posted inside the Batten Center.

Eligibility: The standard Masters age groups will be used (18-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, etc).  Your age on 1/12/20 is your age for the competition.  All swimmers must be registered with USMS and must include a copy of their USMS card if entering with a paper entry form.

Entries: A flat entry fee of $30.00 will cover entry in up to 6 individual events.  Online meet registration is paid by credit card to “ClubAssistant.com Events”.  Paper entry forms are available at USMS Calendar of Events or from Mike Ginder at
mginder@vwu.edu, and must be received by Monday, January 6.  Deck entries will be accepted up until 30 minutes prior to meet at a cost of $10.00 per event, plus a $10.00 facility fee.  Deck entries will only be made to fill up heats.

Relays:  Relays will be deck-entered and deck-seeded at no cost.  The deadline for the 200 Medley relays will be 30 minutes before the start of the meet, the deadline for the 200 Free relays will be at the start of Event 6, and the deadline for the 100 Free relays will be at the start of Event 23.  All relay deadlines are on the day of the meet.

Warm-up/Warm-down Procedure: 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.  ABSOLUTELY NO DIVING WILL BE PERMITTED IN THE WARM-UP LANES ONCE THE MEET HAS BEGUN.  Instructions given by the designated Safety Marshall shall be obeyed at all times.
