Teams are limited to two relay entries in each relay event. All swimmers entered into the meet are considered eligible
for relays. Relay cards will be distributed in coaches’ packets. All 13& Over Relays will swim during the finals sessions on
Friday and Saturday. 13-14 relays will be swum fastest to slowest alternating Girls/Boys. Open relays will then follow
and will also be swum fastest to slowest alternating Girls/Boys. 13&Over relays will have a positive check-in at the Clerk
of Course that must be completed by 5:00PM on the day of the event in order for the relay team to swim. 13&Over
relays will swim at the end of the Finals sessions on Friday and Saturday. All 12&U Relays will swim at the beginning of
their sessions on Friday and Saturday mornings and will be pre-seeded. To help with meet management and name
accuracy it is asked that each team turn in relay cards to the Clerk of Course well in advance of the relays competing
(Changes may be made up until the start of the heat when the team relay is scheduled to compete). To be clear, a team
may substitute for a swimmer originally listed on the relay card so long as they are eligible to compete and the order of
the swimmers may be changed up to the start of the team’s heat by notifying the administrative referee or the lane
timer at the blocks. Relay Entry Note: The OME system defaults your relay entry time to your team’s all time fastest
relay time and does not allow for a simple made up entry time. Coaches should use the aggregate relay builder to
enter more accurate relay entry times (make sure events selected are LCM)
