• USMS membership is required for participation.  International Federation Memberships will be honored.  USMS single event membership will be available for purchase (see CHECK-IN REQUIREMENTS below). 
• Swimmer's Age Division for competition will be determined by their age on December 31, 2014.  National records will be based on swimmer’s age according to the requirements of the national organization for a short course meters event (December 31, 2014–Article 102.2.2-Age Determining Date).
• Participants may enter a maximum of 9 events, excluding the relay.  No changes will be accepted after September 1.

Check-In Requirements:  - Note changes!
• All Swimmers must check-in at the Dixie Center between Sunday, Oct. 5 and Tuesday, Oct. 7.  At that time they will receive their HWSG ID Badge, athlete shirt and welcome bag.
• All Swimmers are also required to check-in at the Swim Desk at the Dixie Center between Sunday, Oct. 5 and Tuesday, Oct. 7.  At that time they will be required to sign the USMS registration waiver.
• When checking in at the Swim Desk at the Dixie Center, swimmers will be required to show proof of current USMS membership, with either a USMS card or email receipt (with expiration date).  If they do not have one of these, they will be required to purchase a USMS single event membership for $15.00.
• Athletes who are unable to complete the above check-in requirements must check-in at the swimming venue on Wednesday, Oct. 8 before 7:15 am.  Swimmers who do not check-in by this time will be dropped from their events unless prior arrangements have been made.
• Athletes entered in the 800M Freestyle or the 1500M Freestyle must also sign-in at the Meet Official's table the morning of the event by 9:30 am or they will be dropped from the event.

Format / Rules: 
• Event is sanctioned by Utah Masters for USMS, Inc. (Sanction #344-S004) - USMS rules will apply. FINA world records will be recognized. Relay is not sanctioned.
• All Swimmers will be eligible to be listed in the USMS Top Ten.
• Pool is indoor with 8 lanes (25 meter) and has an electronic timing system and starting blocks.
• Participants may start in the pool, or from the deck, instead of from the diving blocks, if they prefer.
• There will be scheduled warm-up times Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 7:00 am to 7:45 am.  Pool will not be available before 7:00 am.  Pool will also be available for practice time on Monday and Tuesday from 5:30 am to 3:30 pm.  Swimmers need to present their HWSG ID badge when using the pool on Monday and Tuesday.
• For all events except “distance” events, all women will compete first, by age division, then all men will compete, by age division.  We reserve the right to combine heats (age groups) to avoid excessive empty lanes.
• Heat sheets for each day's events will be available each morning prior to the start of the first event.
“Distance” Events:
• Distance events are the 400M Freestyle, 400M Individual Medley, 800M Freestyle and 1500M Freestyle.

• Events will be run as a combined men's and women's event, seeded by time and scored by age division.
• Events will be seeded and swum fastest to slowest.
• To enter the 800M and 1500M Freestyle, swimmers must enter a time in the space provided on the registration form.  Swimmers without a time for any of the distance events will be seeded in the slowest heat.
• The entry cut-off time for the 800M is 22 minutes and for the 1500M the cut-off time is 48 minutes.  Any swimmer entering with a slower time will not be seeded or allowed to swim.  Swimmers not finished after the cut-off times will be disqualified and must exit the pool immediately.
