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.

There are several changes again for the 2018 State Meet that you need to be aware of!

  1. The Meet Announcement follows a standardized format that has been developed by Y National and applies to all championship and invitational meets that are sanctioned!
  2. The due date for team roster submittal is December 15th.
  3. Typed rosters are no longer required. Trying to get as close to electronic submittal as possible!
  4. Entries fees have increased by $1 per individual and $4 for relay events.
  5. Check back frequently for updates.
  6. The events file available HERE.

    Link to the Y National Registration portal: REGISTRATION. Due no later than December 1st. The sooner the better!
