2002 USMS Long Course Nationals
Event Check-In Deadlines

This is a deck-seeded meet. You (or your coach or teammate) must check-in daily for each event that you plan to swim that day before the check-in deadline for those events. Check-in deadlines may be extended if the meet progresses significantly slower than the planned timeline, but no deadline will be earlier than the times listed below. Changes to any check-in deadline time will be announced during the course of the meet.

Exceptions to same day check-in: You may check in for Event #1, Women's 800 Freestyle, between noon and 8:00 PM on Wednesday, August 14th as well as between 6:30 and 7:00 AM Thursday. You may check in for Event #32, Men's 400 Freestyle, on Saturday, August 17, after the start of the 200 Freestyle Relay as well as the between 6:30 and 7:00 AM Sunday.

Heat Seeding: At the check-in deadline for each event, those swimmers who did not check in are scratched from the entry list and the event is seeded. Heat sheets are generated and posted in many locations around the venue for you to note your heat, lane, and competition. To assist your fans and competition, your name will be posted on the scoreboard during your heat. Our goal is to start each event about an hour after the check-in deadline, although events occurring later in the day may slip.

Scratching an Event: If you decide to not swim an event after you have checked in and the check-in deadline has not passed, PLEASE return to the check-in desk and scratch the event. Our deck-seeding goal is no empty lanes, offering you great competition and efficient meet execution, so please do your part.
