To register for Call of the Water relays, please follow this 3-step process:
1) Swimmers register for the event using the "individual registration" page.
2) Coaches and Relay Captains select and register relays using the "relay team registration" page.
Note: Enter any place holder for Relay Times. Official times will be recorded in step 3.
3) email@example.com will send you a link to your club’s Results Google Sheet where
you will record your splits.
This is a Virtual Relay Competition. Entrants complete a timed swim of the requisite distance and stroke which then becomes a relay split. The cumulative time of the individual splits will be the relay’s final time. This means that four teammates in four different places can swim remotely and add their times to create a relay entry. Split times may be achieved separately or as a split of a relay. Submit your relay splits online. Times may be updated until the last day of competition. Your submitted time determines the final order of finish.
Competition days are January 1, 2021 to February 28, 2021
Entering the Meet
Online entries will be accepted between the above dates and will close at midnight, Pacific Time, on the last day of entry. This event uses online entries only — NO paper entries.
The meet is open to all US Masters Swimmers with valid 2021 registration. International entries must be affiliated with a FINA member federation. Foreign swimmers must verify their FINA Organization membership by submitting an electronic or mailed copy of their FINA organization 2021 registration card to the event director, firstname.lastname@example.org by February 21, 2021. One-Event USMS memberships are not available for this event. USMS swimmers will have their membership verified automatically.
Each relay’s swimmers must be affiliated with a Masters club; the club and swimmers must both be registered with the same Local Masters Swimming Committee (LMSC). If there are questions about affiliation, the swimmer’s entry will be rejected.
Age for the meet is determined as of February 28, 2021. Age groups for relay events: 18+, 25+, 35+, 45+, etc (10-year increments as high as necessary, determined by the age of the youngest relay member).
Fees are $16 per relay entry, plus a one-time registration fee of $8 per swimmer which registers the swimmer, puts her/him on the Meet Roster, and allows him/her to electronically sign the obligatory USMS waiver. A Relay Captain or Club Relay Coordinator may then select swimmers for each relay, submit relay entries with split times, and pay for the relays. The one-time $8 fee will be processed upon registration while the relay entry fees will be processed after the event closes. All fees are non-refundable. Entries must be paid by credit card; we accept Visa, Mastercard, or Discover. Please note that your credit card will reflect a charge from “ClubAssistant.com Events”, our software and merchant account provider.
A real-time meet roster including name, age, sex, and club will be available on the meet information page. Please verify your information and contact email@example.com for any issues.
Relays will be awarded points for first through tenth places as 22-18-16-14-12-10-8-6-4-2, respectively.
Unofficial club scoring will be tabulated in three divisions (men, women, and combined). Mixed relays score points only in the combined division.
All participants will receive one event patch. Relay winners will receive a distinguishable patch. Awards will be mailed after the event closes. No club awards are offered.
The complete results, including splits, will be posted online in early March at https://www.restonmasters.com/callofthewater/
The 2021 Call of the Water T-shirt is available for $18 with entry.
