  • To conform to facility capacity limits or for facility safety concerns.

  • To condense the meet into smaller time frame.

  • Some of the changes that may be made: 1) add a session, 2) heat limit distance events 3) condense sessions, and 4) eliminate relays.

Warm-up Procedures:

  • Warm-ups will be run under New Jersey Swimming Warm-up and Safety Guidelines. Warm-ups will include general warm-up lanes, sprint lanes, and pace lanes.

  • Swimming Equipment is not allowed in the pool during all warm-up sessions. This includes kick boards, hand paddles, and pull buoys.

  • All swimmers must enter the pool feet first from the starting end of the pool.

  • New Jersey Swimming officials will monitor warm-ups.

  • All general warm-up lanes will swim in a counterclockwise direction.

  • For the 500 freestyles preliminaries, there will be one 30 minute warm-up divided by teams.

  • For the main preliminaries sessions, there will be two 30 minute warm-ups, or three 25 minute warm-ups, divided by teams, this will be determined after entries have been received.

  • For the 12 & Under timed finals sessions, warm-ups may be 2 * 25 minutes or 3 * 20 minutes. This will be determined after entries have been received.

  • Warm-up for the 1000 and 1650 may begin in the patio pool, and continue in the competition pool (time permitting), until the start of the distance session.

Check-In:

  • All check-in sheets must be turned into the scoring table 35 minutes before the start of each session. Swimmers that are swimming will have a line through their name. Swimmers that are being scratched will have their names circled with a “SCR” next to the circle. Swimmers scratching a single event will have a line through their name and the event number circled with “SCR” next to the circle.

  • Failure to follow this procedure may result in the swimmer(s) being scratched from the session.

No Show Procedure for Prelims and Timed Finals:

  • No penalty will be incurred for an unscratched swimmer who fails to report to the starting blocks for his/her scheduled event for preliminary sessions and timed finals events. However, the event will be counted toward the swimmer’s maximum allowable swims for that day. The swimmer may be allowed to swim the event in a later heat or a subsequent event if the swimmer is at the starting end of the pool, ready to swim, and an open lane is available. However, the host club will not schedule an additional heat to accommodate the swimmer.

Scratch Rule:

  • The meet will follow USA Swimming rule 207.11.6.D and rule 207.11.6.E for scratches from finals.

  • A swimmer who fails to scratch from finals within the deadlines outlined in rule 207.11.6.E and then fails to swim the event at finals will be barred from further competition for the remainder of the meet.

  • In addition, the club of a swimmer who qualifies for finals or consolation finals and fails to compete in that final during the last session of the meet without properly scratching from the event in accordance to the above procedures may be fined $50 for each occurrence.
