Meet Rules

 

  1. The 2016 YMCA rules (USA-S Technical Rules) and those of the Butler County Swim League will govern the meet.
  2. Swimmers are permitted to swim FOUR individual events plus relays.
  3. The swimmers’ age as of June 1, 2016 determines the appropriate age group. 18-year-old swimmers who have just graduated from high school are eligible to compete.
  4. Electronic timing and scoring equipment will be used. In case of an equipment problem, watch times will become official.
  5. Coaches are asked to submit their relay entrants before the start of each session. We will continue to swim timed final freestyle relays as the last event of the Friday prelim sessions (both morning and afternoon). We will swim timed final medley and crescendo freestyle relays (8&under=25M, 10&under=25M, 11-12=50M, 13-14=50M, 15-18=50M) on Saturday. Please be sure to include the entry fees for all relay entries.
  6. This is a team event. All competitors must be team members in good standing.
  7. Deck entries will be taken before the start of each session on Friday (space permitting) and on a cash only basis ($5.00 individual and $20.00 relay). Deck entries will be cut off 30 minutes prior to the start of each session.
  8. 6 & under swimmers may swim up as 8 & under only in strokes not offered for 6 & under competition.
  9. Swimmers may move up one or more age groups for the relay events and then move back down for individual events. 14 & under competitors may move up for the 200 free and then move back down for the remaining events. For all other events, if the swimmer moves up an age group, the swimmer must remain in the older age group for the remainder of the meet.
  10. The Rolling Hills Crescendo, a 200M freestyle crescendo relay, will be the final scored event on Saturday. The order and distance are as follows: 8 & Under = 25M; 10 & Under = 25M; 11-12 = 50M; 13-14 = 50M; 15-18 = 50M (separate heats for boys and girls).
