Meet Entry Policies
- Meet attendance: All swimmers are entered in dual meets and Divisionals as attendance is expected at these. These meets are important and count in our standings.
- All Leagues: is for qualifiers only in individual events (all are eligible for relays), however we expect qualifiers to attend.
- Absences: If you can't attend a dual meet, Divisionals, or All Leagues, please notify us via the meet absence form.
- Meet events: Coaches decide what swimmers are entered in for dual meets and Divisionals. This includes individuals and relays, as well as exhibition and live events. They may let swimmers choose in some cases, but choices are mostly for invitationals. The fastest swimmers, determined by times and performance, are in the live heats. Coaches try to put the best lineup together in order to win the meet, so while there may be cases in which an event might be questioned, the coaches do have a purpose.
- Relays: These are determined by the coaches and will almost always be decided by a very black and white method: by time. The coaches will put together the fastest relays possible in an effort to win those relays.
- Changes to meet lineups: The meet lineup that is sent out is never set in stone. The coaches sometimes will need to change events, especially relays, during the meet based on various factors in an effort to win the meet.
