2019 Meet Info:

IMPORTANT UPDATES (11/14/19): Please note the following–

  • Waitlist: We are no longer able to reserve spaces and will begin a waitlist starting on Monday, November 18.  We will accept entries without limitation through Sunday night (11/17) at midnight (PST). Entries received after 11/17/19 from teams that are not currently listed HERE will be placed on a waitlist and notified of acceptance after the entry deadline of 11/25/19.
  • Entries: We are closing in on our expected cap of 850 swimmers.   If you plan to attend and are not listed, you need to submit entries ASAP.  If you have any questions, please contact Ryan Stratton.  If you have previously contacted Ryan or BD regarding entry space, your team is automatically included in the meet.  We will do our best to accommodate all entries.
  • Relays: We made a small adjustment to relays.  In order to allow for team scoring, all relays swum as SCY will be scored.  Any relay swum in finals as LCM will not be scored.  Each team will have the choice of swimming SCY or LCM, with the top 8 seeded relays that choose LCM being allowed to swim at finals as a nonscoring event.

FORMAT: This year’s meet will be run as SCY during prelims and LCM during finals.  This should present a great opportunity for some early Trials cuts and we look forward to seeing some fast swims.
