2001 USMS Short Course National Championships

Check-in Procedure. Check-in will start at 7 a.m. each day. You must check in daily for all events that you plan to swim that day before the check-in deadline for those events. The deadline for check-in could be moved later if the meet is significantly slower then the timeline, but it would never be earlier than the deadlines listed below. Any changes to the check-in deadlines will be announced during the meet.

Heat Seeding. At the check-in deadline for each event, all swimmers who did not check-in are removed from the event, the event is seeded, and heat sheets are printed and posted in multiple places, where you can note your heat, lane, and competitors. Our goal is to start each event about one hour after the check-in deadline, although events scheduled later in the day will likely have a longer wait.

Scratching an Event. If you decide not to swim an event that you checked in for and the check-in deadline has not passed, return to the check-in desk and scratch the event you do not want to swim. The goal of deck seeding is no empty lanes. Scratching an event you do not plan to swim will help speed up the meet.
