- Athletes may enter three individual events and one relay.
- The order of events run at the competition will be based on registrations.
- Unified Relay Teams: Please see the Swimming Handbook (PDF) for new relay substitution rules.
- The 15M Walk will not be offered at the state level.
- Dive starts are not allowed.
- We will once again be swimming the traditional way in the pool so that times earned at Area are accurate for State divisioning.
- If you have athletes in the flotation races, the flotation device must be of the body wrap around type such that if the athlete were to not be able to hold on to the device, the device would still support the athlete with the face out of the water. Flotation devices such as aqua joggers or other waist belts, kickboards, inner tubes or floats that wrap around the arms are not acceptable. Athletes with an unapproved flotation device will not be allowed to participate.
