Rules,rules rules. There always seems to be questions about the rules we use for officiating. Beginning in 2006, Y Competitive Swimming began following USA Swimming Technical Rules (blue section) for officiating our meets. The rules apply from dual meets, through National Championship meets. Here is a link to the 2016 rulebook in PDF format: 2016 USA-S Rulebook. Of course, there are a number of other rules that we follow, including Fair Play: The Rules That Govern YMCA Competitive Sports and the Swimming Addendum to the Rules That Govern YMCA Competitive Sports.The Meet Announcement/Checklist/Forms for the 2017 State Championship Meet was e-mailed 11/01/16 to all coaches on the state distribution list. If you did not receive a copy of the announcement, you can download a copy at Cortland's STATE MEET INFORMATION page.
