The focus of this meet is community and we are always looking for volunteers from the participants in this meet. If you are willing to time you will have one of the best views in the house. We are also still in need of officials. Please contact the Meet Director if you are willing to participate.

We will be running prelims and finals as per published rules
Cons/Finals: Any swimmer qualifying for a consolation or final heat in an individual event who
fails to compete in said consolation or final heat shall be barred from further
competition for the remainder of the meet. Disqualification under this section shall
only apply to swimmers qualifying based on the original preliminary results. In the
event of withdrawal or barring of a swimmer from competition, the referee shall fill
the consolation final or final when possible with the next qualified swimmer(s).
Listed alternates not to exceed two (2) shall be announced and posted.
Alternates interested in participation should report to the starter before the start of
the race but shall not be penalized if unavailable to compete in the finals. When
consolation finals have not yet been swum and a barring or withdrawal is known
to the referee, the referee shall re-seed the consolation final and final, if
necessary, by inserting the alternate(s) in the appropriate lane(s), filling all lanes
in finals. If a consolation final has been contested, the companion final shall be
swum without re-seeding for empty lanes. Finals shall include those events deck
seeded but swum as timed finals in prelim/final competition. Swimmers must
declare their intent to scratch within thirty (30) minutes after the initial
posting of the individual event results at the computer table on the south
side of the pool. Swimmers must officially scratch or rescind their intention
to scratch within thirty (30) minutes after their last individual event.
Scratches: The fastest 16 swimmers in prelim/final events for 11-12, 13-14 and senior events
from sessions #1 will qualify for finals in session #3. 2 alternates will also be
designated based on results. Finals qualifiers will have 30 minutes from the time
results are posted to scratch from finals. If the scratch is not made by that time, all
swimmers in the top 16 will be awarded placement into the consolations and
finals based on prelim order of finish. No more than two alternates will be moved
into finals regardless of the number of scratches. Any swimmer qualifying for a
finals race, who fails to compete in Session #3 after declaring their intention to do
so, will be barred from the remainder of the meet.
If an athlete in the top 8 scratches within 30 minutes, all other athletes can move
up. As per USA Swimming Rules: if an athlete in the top 8 fails to scratch before
finals and does not swim, no one in the consolation final heat moves up for award purposes.
Scratch table is located under the permanent shade structure at the south end of the pool.
Please bring your waiver and check to the computer table and register with your phone number so we have a contact in case of weather concerns.
Focusing on the safety of our athletes and our volunteers we have made some changes to the pool seating and park access this year. Please see attached maps.
