After this deadline the Committee will NOT be adding any additional teams. Entry confirmations will be emailed back to the team coaches and managers,who will have until Friday, June 1st to add, remove or reassign swimmers.

Please be reminded of the maximum events per swimmer: five (5). If coaches submit a swimmer with more than five events, the committee by default will scratch the lowest ranking INDIVDUAL event for that swimmer.

Please be reminded of the maximumentries per event per team: five (5) for 50M Freestyle and three (3) for all others. If coaches submit more than the maximum swimmers per event, the committee by default will scratch the slowest and NT swimmers.

Schools will be required to submit the names of their coaches, team officials and timekeepers BEFORE Thursday, May 31st. Persons on this list will be provided with colour-coded armbands (granting free access for the duration of the meet) as well as a sponsored T-Shirt.

Wristbands must be worn visibly on the wrist BEFORE entry on meet day. Volunteers with wristbands will be required to check-in at the gate. ALL other visitors will be required to pay the gate fee. Parents will NOT be allowed to escort their swimmers to the stands without first paying the entrance fee.
