Procedures for Top 10 submissions

For USMS sanctioned meets the meet director should send the meet results to their LMSC Top 10 person.  Requested splits should also be included.   Pool measurements are required for pools with bulkheads or pools that have not been previously certified through USMS or USA Swimming.

For USMS swimmers that participate in sanctioned USA meets or other USMS recognized meets, the swimmer is responsible for submitting their times to their LMSC Top 10 person and for providing the documentation, including pool measurement verification if necessary.

For USMS swimmers that participate in USMS recognized meets held outside the USA, the swimmer is responsible for submitting their times to their LMSC Top 10 person and providing the appropriate documentation.

For more information see the Top 10 FAQ or USMS Rule Book.
