For Nationals please enter the maximum number of events you are allowed to do. If you don’t make any of the time standards for your age group you can still enter 3 individual events (with the exception of the 800 Free). If you make any time standards you can swim those events, PLUS get three additional to a maximum of 6 individual events. Here is the link to the time standards:
Relays will be a very important part of the meet. They only swim the 4 x 50 Relays at nationals so that means Men’s, Women, & Mixed for 200 Free & 200 Medley Relays, so the max number of relays you can do is 4 (Single sex Medley & Free + Mixed Medley and Free)
We will try to put together 2 stroke relays in EVERY age group for Men, Women, and Mixed. That adds up to A LOT of swimmers needed to fill all those spots!
Entries are now open for Nationals and there is a $10 early entry discount going on right now so please enter early and forward me your confirmation so the coaches will know what events you are preparing for.
