Relay Entry and Payments

Relays are $16 each. A credit card must be submitted when entering relays online. However, the card will not be charged until the last day of the meet, May 13. Cash or check may be presented at the athlete registration table on-site before the last day to avoid having the card on file charged. On May 13, payments for all relays entered and seeded before the last meet day will be processed using the card on file. There are no refunds for relays not swum or entered incorrectly.

Relays must be entered with age groups and entry times by the 3 p.m. deadline (see table). You may still change the name/s at any time prior to the relay being swum by crossing out the names/s on the card and replacing with the new name/s and age/s. No changes in the age group or seed time are allowed. The lead-off (first) swimmer must be identified correctly. Relay cards may be picked up in the registration area.

Relays will not be checked for mistakes and omissions made by team representatives. Disqualifications resulting from mistakes and omissions shall not be reconsidered. Accuracy and completeness are the responsibility of the coaches and/or swimmers submitting the relays.
