SANCTIONED FOR USMS INC. BY MICHIGAN MASTERS

HOST ORGANIZATIONS:  Eastern Michigan University and the South Oakland Seals are the Host Organizations for the 2015 Michigan Masters State Championships. We are looking forward to an exciting weekend and a well organized event for participants and spectators alike. This is the tenth State Championship Masters Swim Meet held at the EMU.  

FACILITIES:  Olds Robb Student Recreation Intramural Complex houses the Michael H. Jones Natatorium at Eastern Michigan University (map attached). It is 10-lane, 50 meter indoor pool, to be configured, between two fixed walls, as one 25-yard ten-lane course. Ten lanes will be used for competition and the other 10 lane course for continuous warm-up/cool down (except during the distance events when the full 16 lanes will be used).  Four lanes will be available for warm-up/cool down during the distance events.  This meet will be swum as Short Course Yards.  The length of the competition course without a bulkhead is in compliance and on file with USMS in accordance with articles 105.1.7 and 107.2.1.  Swimmers must enter the water feet first in a cautious manner during all warm-ups/cool downs.  Diving is permitted only in the designated sprint lanes. Lockers are available but limited in number & you must bring your own lock.              

RULES - ELIGIBILITY:  USMS rules apply and will be observed. Any swimmer who is not USMS registered for 2015 by the State Meet entry deadline will NOT BE ALLOWED TO SWIM IN THE MEET.

A swimmer not registered with Michigan LMSC cannot establish a Michigan State Record. Any swimmer registered in the meet CAN set a MEET championship.

TIMING:  Timing system is a Daktronics system with electronic and manual back-up with display scoreboard with start and recall. All events (except some heats of the distance events) will be timed using this system. Manual back-up timers will be provided at each lane. Swimmers are encouraged to hit the pad firmly and, when swimming in relays, to remain clear of the pad area until the event is completed by all swimmers.  Any swimmer or relay attempting a NATIONAL RECORD should alert the Starter and make sure there are the required three manual timers as backup. Swimmers are required to supply their own lap counting personnel in distance events. 

AGE GROUPS:  Age on April 19 (last day of the meet) determines his/her age for the entire meet.  Individual Events:  18-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, etc. through 100+.  The youngest person in a relay determines the relay age group. Relay age groups: 18+, 25+, 35+, 45+, 55+, 65+, 75+, and  85+

ENTRY DEADLINE:  Online entry deadline is the end of the day (11:59 PM) on April 13, 2015.

SEEDING:  Seeding will be slow to fast for all events except distance events.  Distance events will be seeded from fast to slow after check in time has ended for that day (see Entry Procedure Distance Events).  Except for distance (500 yards or longer) free events, Men and Women will be seeded separately into heats according to seed times.  “No time” entries will be in the slowest heats.   Consult the heat sheets that you will receive at the meet check-in for your heat and lane assignments.  It’s the swimmers responsibility to report to the proper heat and lane.  Failure to appear will be considered a scratch and you will not be allowed to swim in another heat of the same event. The Meet Director reserves the right to RESEED the distance events if there are a significant number of scratches after check-in to eliminate empty lanes during the swimming of the event.
