SEEDING & LANE ASSIGNMENTS:
Each event will be seeded by the pre-entered seedtime of each swimmer, with the slower heats first (except the 400m, which will be swum fastest to slowest).  The meet will be seeded according to times submitted, regardless of age and gender.  No Time (NT) will be seeded in the slower heats.  Swimmers are responsible for reporting to the blocks on time for their appropriate heat and lane for each event.  Heat and lane assignments for all events will be posted by 10:45 on the day of the competition.

STARTING PROCEDURE:
  • A – When the swimmers and officials are ready, the referee shall signal with an outstretched arm to the starter that the swimmers are under the starter’s control.
  • B – On the starter’s command “Take your mark,” the swimmers shall immediately assume their starting position with at least one foot at the front of the starting platform.  Swimmers starting in the water must have at least one hand in contact with the wall or starting platform.  When all swimmers are stationary, the starter shall give the starting signal.
  • C – For backstroke event starts, the starter may give the command “Place Your Feet” after the referee’s whistle.
WARM-UP &  COOL-DOWN:
  • A – The pool is available for warming up beginning at 10am and will be cleared at 10:50am.
  • B – Either lanes 1 or 8 will be open for warm-up and cool-down throughout the meet and there will be multiple break periods in between events when the whole pool will be available for warm-up/cool-down.
  • C – We ask that swimmers in the warm-up/cool-down lane (#1 or 8) be considerate and stop/tread water during the start of each subsequent event and only enter this lane at the shallow end of the pool.
